Publisher's Synopsis

Tap Dancing to Work compiles six decades of writing on legendary investor Warren Buffett, from Carol Loomis, the reporter who knows him best.

Warren Buffett built Berkshire Hathaway into something remarkable - and Fortune had a front-row seat

When Fortune writer Carole Loomis first mentioned a little-known Omaha hedge fund manager in a 1966 article, she didn't dream that Warren Buffett would become the world's greatest investor. Nor did she imagine that she and Buffett would be close friends.

As Buffett's fortune and reputation grew, Loomis used her unique insight into his thinking to chronicle his work, writing scores of stories that tracked his many accomplishments - and his occasional mistakes.

Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles from Fortune, including cover stories and pieces by Buffett himself. Readers will gain fresh insights into Buffett's investment strategies and his thinking on management, philanthropy, public policy, and even parenting.

Scores of Buffett books have been written, but none can claim this combination of trust, deep understanding of Buffett's world, and a long-term perspective.
