Lowenstein paints Buffett as the antithesis of the reckless mentality that fueled the financial debacle on Wall Street at the end of the 1980s and shows him to be a man on a lifelong search for stability and security.

Jacket Description:
Starting from scratch, simply by picking stocks and companies for investment, Warren Buffett amassed one of the epochal fortunes of the 20th century-an astounding net worth of $10 billion, and counting. That awesome record has made him a cult figure popularly known for his seeming contradictions: a billionaire who has a modest lifestyle, a phenomenally successful investor who eschews the revolving-door trading of modem Wall Street, a brilliant deal-maker who cultivates a homespun aura.

Buffett masterfully traces its subject's life: his enormously successful partnership; his early, inspired investments in American Express and Geico; his companionship and investment with Katharine Graham of The Washington Post; his role in the Capital Cities purchase of ABC; his unique relationship with his wife and his mistress; and his rescue of the scandal-ridden Salomon Brothers are just some of the subjects covered.
