    The book is brimming with advices (albeit not in a pedantic way), anecdotes, cautions, and information in general about a wide away of topics like the earnings of bh itself (obviously), market conditions, economy, reinsurance, coca-cola, geico, the good investments (coca cola, gillette, geico), the bad investments (netjets, airlines), and the ugly investments (dexter shoes), nuclear proliferation, china olympics, cds, technology, executive compensation, corn ethanol, football, and of course, the rising star of bh ajit jain.

    The repeated urging to be greedy when others are fearful, be fearful when others are greedy; others like inflation is a political phenomenon, not economic, if investors had to study only the past, all librarians would be billionaires; and the popular ones like buy wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price, and gambling is a tax on ignorance are only a few of the gems mentioned in their shareholders' meetings.

    The book also includes some discussions from buffett and munger about their biggest blunders - buying dexter shoes (which eventually failed) for 2% of berkshire hathaway shares, munger's blown opportunity at belridge oil, buffett's claim in 1987 that encyclopedias will be little changed in 20 years from then (clearly, he had not seen the wikipedia coming) - being a bunch of them.
