- The arc of Buffett's business life is covered in this book. The editor of Fortune magazine has collected and updated the best Buffett articles published in Fortune between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself. The editor has provided commentary about each major article, supplying context and her own informed point of view.
