Storyline

With a net worth of over $60,000,000,000, Warren Buffett is truly a one-of-a-kind billionaire. The legendary investor still lives in his modest home in Omaha. At 86 years old, he drives to the office every morning to manage Berkshire Hathaway, the fifth largest public company in the world. But more surprising than his humble lifestyle is his moral core. The same principles of decency and integrity that helped him pile up a fortune led him to give it all away in the largest philanthropic donation in history. Becoming Warren Buffett chronicles the evolution of a boy from Nebraska who became one of the most respected men in the world, and the heroes who helped guide him along the way. By allowing access to his life and never-before-released home videos, Buffett offers a glimpse into his unique mind to help us understand what is truly important when money no longer has meaning.

It was enlightening to see the man behind the fame
28 February 2017 | by claudjak-864-699400See all my reviews

HBO: Becoming Warren Buffett. Highly recommend it.

What an amazing man, not because of his money but because he maintains his character regardless of the amount of money he has. If his portrayal in this documentary is accurate, which I believe it is, then the best part of this documentary was getting a glimpse to his philosophy of life and approach to businesses- just fascinating. He seems to be a man with great moral values, integrity, and extreme focus, which one needs to be the best at anything.

Plus, his respect for others, including his wife, game playing with numbers and an appreciation for Dale Carnegie is just awesome.

Maybe I loved it because it reminds me of my 8 yr old son that has read Dale Carnegie 2X and is always crunching math numbers in his head.
