For a very long time, Warren Buffett was the richest person in the world. And, as part of their research, Dan and Ian recently read Alice Schroeder’s fantastic biography of Warren Buffett titled “The Snowball”.
They felt that they learnt so much from both the book, and from the principles that Warren Buffett applies in his life and business, that they decided to dedicate an episode to his story.
