Kirkus Reviews

"Daniel S. Pecaut [is a] proprietor of a family brokerage firm in Sioux City, Iowa, and a close student of his Corn Belt neighbor." 

New York Times

"For 25 years, I have religiously read Daniel and Corey's annual commentaries about Berkshire Hathaway. I know of no keener observers on what has made Berkshire such a wonderful wealth-builder. I also know of no investment firm that cares more about their clients than their firm, Pecaut and Company. You can't help but learn valuable lessons by reading this book." 

Jonathan Brandt, Research Analyst, Ruane, Cunniff & Goldfarb 

"Since Buffett and Munger always expressed themselves candidly and clearly, once you've read Daniel and Corey's copious notes, you'll understand Berkshire's extraordinary approach to investing. This book is a true gem." 

Jean-Marie Eveillard, Senior Adviser, First Eagle Investment Management

"Congratulations on your excellent book, University of Berkshire Hathaway."

Robert P. Miles, Author of The Warren Buffett CEO

"Thank you for sharing notes which captured real-time key messages from the expanding curriculum at the University of Berkshire Hathaway. I have been a proud "part-time" student myself and marvel at the memories released by thumbing through your own journal... Great work. Congratulations. A must read."

Thomas A. Russo, Gardner Russo & Gardner LLC

"Having attended nearly every Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting since 1985, I know first-hand that these notes cover every base Buffett and Munger have touched. The University of Berkshire Hathaway is a unique gateway inside these legendary meetings. This book will be a resource for generations." 

Daniel P. Boyle, President, Schwerin Boyle Capital Management

"I'm impressed. I've attended quite a few Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meetings but this book filled in the gaps for those I haven't attended and better still, it underscored any number of valuable insights Buffett and Munger have provided more than once. What's more, because it covers so many years, it shows how they've learned and changed and how they haven't been afraid to fess up to mistakes. All in all, a fascinating look at two extraordinary investors who unselfishly share their many talents and who educate by putting on a very entertaining show in Omaha every spring." 

Randy Cepuch, Author of A Weekend with Warren Buffett

"Having never been to one of Berkshire Hathaway's annual meetings, I now feel I have attended many. With so many pieces of investment wisdom woven throughout this book, the University of Berkshire Hathaway should become a 'must read' for every investor and investment professional." 

Wayne F. Holly, President, Sage Rutty & Company

"This is a fascinating book where they went and took notes of every meeting. You can see such an overview of Buffett and Charlie's thinking in a way that's really condensed and an overall bird's eye view of it--really fast. It speeds up the 30 years into a few hours of reading."

Holly Lafon, GuruFocus Podcast

"Anyone can buy all the old BRK shareholder letters, but there are very few transcripts from the live shareholder meetings in Omaha, Nebraska (1986-2015). There is definitely overlap, but these live interactions sometimes provide a peek into their less-publicized opinions (especially Munger's)... If you're a Buffett & Munger enthusiast, this is a nice addition to your collection."

"Anyone interested in Berkshire Hathaway will find this book interesting."
