Book Review: Tap Dancing to Work: Warren Buffett on Practically Everything, 1966-2012 by Carol J. Loomis

tap-dancing-to-work-warren-buffett-on-practically-everything-original-imaearwszgsgegyjIt was OK. Because it’s a series of articles and not a real biography, there’s no cohesion. I think the biggest problem with this book is how boring the subject matter is.

Warren Buffet is obviously smart and a book trying to figure out how he does what he does could be interesting, but otherwise, from the outside, his life is quite boring (which I bet correlates with his happiness).

He didn’t seem to start dirt poor, just average. There was no drama. There was no losses to nothing and miraculous recovery. There was nothing more than a steady stream of rational decisions and a pile of money that grew to amazing proportions. Even then, Warren Buffet kept a supremely ordinary life, which makes me wonder why some rich people need so much protection and Warren Buffet doesn’t.

★★★☆☆
