In shelving The Essential Buffet, I found two more books about Warren Buffet by Robert Hagstrom.  I had read The Warren Buffet Way, several years ago, and somehow missed reading The Warren Buffet Portfolio.

At first, I felt that I had probably already read what this author had to say about the "world's greatest investor." I quickly reviewed my annotations in The Warren Buffet Way and undertook skimming The Warren Buffet Portfolio. I quickly settled into reading the Portfolio with some care.  There isn't that much overlap among the three books.  Perhaps the stories that do overlap are worth the repeat emphasis.

If you are an active investor and self-directed, I think any or all of the three books are worthwhile and entertaining reading.
