Alice Schroeder's bio of Warren Buffett

If you don't think you have time to read Alice Schroeder's "Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life" (http://www.amazon.com/Snowball-Warren-Buffett-Business-Life/dp/0553805096; 787 pages long!), take a few minutes to read the review by Michael Lewis at http://www.tnr.com/story_print.html?id=12ef5554-1023-4be9-ad93-681003b280ef. Here's the ending:
Buffett might not like it, but this book has done him a very Buffett-like service. Twenty years from now, when the financial markets have forgotten our current trauma, and finance is once again fashionable, some young person will pick it up and discover that history's most legendary investor was not a cartoon but a real live human being. And still, somehow, deeply admirable.
