9780471446910: Damn Right: Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger

Praise for Damn Right!
From the author of the bestselling WARREN BUFFETT SPEAKS. . .
"Charlie Munger, whose reputation is deep and wide, based on an extraordinary record of brilliantly successful business strategies, sees things that others don't. There is a method to his mastery and, through this book, we get a chance to learn about this rare individual." -MICHAEL EISNER, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company
"Janet Lowe uncovers the iconoclastic genius and subtle charm behind Charlie Munger's curmudgeonly facade in this richly woven portrait of our era's heir to Ben Franklin. With a biographer's detachment, an historian's thoroughness, and a financial writer's common sense, Lowe produces a riveting account of the family, personal, and business life of the idiosyncratically complex and endlessly fascinating figure." -LAWRENCE CUNNINGHAM, Cardozo Law School, Author of The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America
"For years, Berkshire Hathaway shareholders and investors worldwide (me included) have struggled to learn more about Warren Buffett's cerebral sidekick. Now we can rest and enjoy reading Janet Lowe's book about this rare intellectual jewel called Charlie Munger." -ROBERT G. HAGSTROM, Author of The Warren Buffett Way
"Charlie has lived by the creed that one should live a life that doesn't need explaining. But his life should be explained. In a city where heroism is too often confused with celebrity, Charlie is a true hero and mentor. He lives the life lessons that he has studiously extracted from other true heroes and mentors, from Ben Franklin to Ben Graham. This book illuminates those life lessons." -RONALD L. OLSON, Munger, Tolles & Olson llp
"Janet Lowe's unprecedented access to Charlie Munger and Warren Buffett has resulted in a first-class book that investors, academics, and CEOs will find entertaining and highly useful."-TIMOTHY P. VICK, Money Manager and Author of How to Pick Stocks Like Warren Buffett

From the Inside Flap :

Although the face of Charlie Munger has graced the covers of such renowned magazines as Fortune, and he has been profiled in several newspapers, very little has been written about the man who is considered by many to be the "brains behind" business partner and investment guru Warren Buffett--until now.

Businessperson, attorney, confidant, and straight man to Buffett's jokes, father of nine, and self-made billionaire in his own right, Charlie Munger's career is an inarguable testament to his genius, versatility, loyalty, and famed talent for "cutting through the bull." Buffett himself credits Munger as the person who expanded his horizons by teaching him the value of great franchises and the virtues of qualitative analysis. Yet, as this first-ever book about one of the investment world's most mysterious, private, and illusive figures reveals, Charlie Munger is far more than the man behind Buffett's throne.

A midwesterner through and through, the Omaha native is living proof that valuable, innovative financial and cultural ideas can and do flow from east to west. Indeed, the Berkshire Hathaway empire's stature as a model-investment-firm-turned-household-word is a reflection of Director and Vice Chairman Munger's staunch advocacy for ethical business practices, his brutal honesty, and his perseverance in the face of myriad adversity. An occasional lecturer and enigmatic instructor in how to become financially independent, lead an ethical life, and be responsible to your family, your community, and your world, Munger is, above all, a man whose life lessons are revealed not so much in the telling as in the living. And quite a life it's been thus far, as this fascinating mosaic of business philosophy, humor, and biography clearly conveys.

Drawing from the unprecedented cooperation of Charlie Munger himself, as well as his family, Warren Buffett, numerous interviews, speech transcripts, and other writings, Damn Right! offers an unparalleled look at the techniques, tactics, and personal history of one of the foremost thinkers of our time, from his fortuitous connection with Buffett to his evolution as a remarkable strategist, corporate wizard, and exceptional citizen.
