Of Permanent Value - the Trilogy!

Just thought I'd do my part to promote Andy Kilpatrick's latest magnum opus, the 2010 edition of Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett: A trilogy. This three-volume, 2000 page, behemoth replaces the two-volume 2008 "cosmic edition" that weighed in at a mere 10 pounds and 1800 pages. I have no idea how physically big the trilogy will be, but I imagine he won't be sending out many review copies with shipping costs that high.

But the most exciting part is that the Warren Buffett Class at the University of Missouri has an entire chapter devoted to it. Of course, there are over a hundred chapters, but it is still pretty cool. Anyway, Mr. Kilpatrick is a terrific guy. I had a lot of fun corresponding with him about the class and his obsession with Buffett. I encourage everyone to try to acquire copy of the this "Buffett encyclopedia" even if it currently is listing for $70 on Amazon.
