In the world of investing, the name Warren Buffett is synonymous with success and prosperity. Building from the ground up, Buffett chose wisely and picked his stocks with care, in turn amassing the huge fortune for which he is now famous. Mary Buffett, former daughter-in-law of this legendary financial genius and a successful businesswoman in her own right, has teamed up with noted Buffettologist David Clark to create Buffettology, a one-of-a-kind investment guide that explains the winning strategies of the master.

Complete with profiles of fifty-four "Buffett companies" — companies in which Buffett has invested and which the authors believe he continues to follow — Buffettology can show any investor, from beginner to savvy pro, how to create a profitable portfolio.
In Buffettology, Mary Buffett, with the help of David Clark, details Warren Buffett's approach to investing. It's a style of investing based on the work of Benjamin Graham and one that requires a quality that most investors lack--discipline. Mary Buffett writes, ""As you read through this book you will come to see that having a business perspective on investing is more about discipline than philosophy.... In short, other people's follies, brought on by fear and greed, will offer you, the investor, the opportunity to take advantage of their mistakes and benefit from the discipline of committing capital to investment only when it makes sense from a business perspective.... You will find that almost everything that relates to business perspective investing is alien to Wall Street folklore.
Buffettology examines Buffett's methods for valuing companies and selecting stocks--it even encourages you to buy a calculator and work through the valuation formulas that Buffett uses when researching companies to buy. The book not only serves as a useful guide to understanding how Buffett invests, it's an excellent primer to investing in stocks, whether you plan to become a Buffettologist or not. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards, Business editor

Born and raised in Warren's hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, David grew up with Buffett's children and eventually fell under the influence of the Master investor.

Mary and David discovered they had a similar enthusiasm for studying Warren's investment methods, which developed into a professional relationship between the two of them.

He has been quoted on finance in the New York Times, and is well acquainted with several investors in Warren Buffett’s original partnership (all of whom are now worth in excess of $100 million).
