The Essays of Warren Buffett, Lessons for Corporate America, Second Edition, by Warren Buffett and edited by Lawrence Cunningham.   This is a thematically organized compendium of various Warren Buffett essays (used with his permission), selected and arranged by Professor Lawrence Cunningham.  The book was originally published in 1997, updated in 2001, and further expanded in a 2008 second edition.  The essays come primarily from Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway annual reports, which we feel are the best-written shareholder reports around.  As with all of Buffett's writings, these essays read quite differently than what one is accustomed to seeing come from most corporate CEOs.  Buffett is remarkably open, honest and informative in his writings, to say nothing of sharp, witty and profound.  He covers the topics that really matter--like corporate governance.  Indeed, this collection of his writings would be worth its price if governance were all that he addressed.  However, Buffett goes on to discuss the most important aspects of corporate accounting and reporting, mergers and acquisitions, taxes, junk bonds and, importantly, the appropriate mindset for the successful investor.  It is a testament to Buffett's clarity of thought that he can reduce so many complex investment and financial issues to very straightforward, understandable and even entertaining discussions.  In short, this book is a gem.
