SAN FRANCISCO, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The first and only "updatable" Warren Buffett book was published today by eBooks on Investing, a San Francisco publisher of timely, helpful investment books that are updated propitiously for readers and investors.
The book is: "Secrets in Plain Sight: Business & Investing Secrets of Warren Buffett, 2011 Edition" by Jeff Matthews, a 30-year Wall Street veteran and incisive Buffett watcher. Matthews travels to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting to unlock the "secrets" of Buffett's success as an investor and CEO. His findings: Buffett's "secrets" are in plain sight and 39 of them are in this book.
"The questions are answered: how Warren Buffett became the world's richest man? the greatest investor of our times? America's most successful business executive?" said Jamie Campbell, publisher of eBooks on Investing. "Jeff Matthews is an astute, analytical value-based investment manager, known for his diligent research and clear precise prose. It is an easy-to-read, even-handed evaluation of Warren Buffett's business and investing acumen."
The book is timely. It was published (as an eBook for $4.99 at Amazon) 10 days after Matthews turned in his 230-page manuscript, and just days before the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting on April 30. It includes a discussion of the recent resignation of David Sokol, chairman of several Berkshire subsidiaries, and Warren Buffett's handling of the disclosure that Sokol appears to have profited from urging Buffett to purchase a chemical company for Berkshire's portfolio.
The book is also the first an only "updatable" Buffett book. Matthews plans to update the 2011 Edition throughout the year, starting with a report on this year's annual meeting. Updates are offered free to purchasers of the ebook, downloadable to Kindle, iPad/iPhone/iPod, Nook and other devices. A print edition (for $9.99) will be available in mid-May at Amazon -- after it finishes printing and binding.
