The Warren Buffett CEO; By Robert Miles; John Wiley Publishing; pounds 17.95
Have you got what it takes to succeed as a business leader? If you have, Warren will be getting in touch soon. At least, you might presume so after reading Robert Miles' new book. It implies that talent rarely avoids Buffett's scrutiny.
Miles offers portraits of nearly two dozen CEOs who are running Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway-owned businesses, based on interviews with all of them and unprecedented access to the Buffett operation. And you know what? They're just a bunch of regular guys working 100 hours a week and aiming to put off retirement till they're 90.
