THE SNOWBALL Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Biography & Memoir • 37 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Alice Schroeder's authorized biography of the “Oracle of Omaha” is a loving portrait of a complex man. Kirsten Potter is as comfortable describing corporate takeovers and market theory as she is describing family relationships. Engaging throughout, the recording never drags or gets bogged down. Author Schroeder introduces the audiobook, giving listeners insights into the challenges involved in understanding what makes Buffett tick. Then Potter takes over, slightly more formal than the author, but wise in standing back to let the story tell itself. Thankfully, Potter never tries to mimic Buffett's Nebraska twang, but merely shifts her cadence to differentiate his many discourses from the author's own prose. R.M.
