The ‘Snowball’ Cometh

Libraries have had the authorized bio of Warren Buffett on order since February (the book was originally scheduled for May). Don’t let those orders get cancelled; USA Today reports that it will be released on September 29. 

The story also explains that the curious title, The Snowball comes from a Buffett quote: “Life is like a snowball. The really important thing is finding wet snow and a really long hill.”

Phew; I was afraid it had to do with one’s chances of investing like Buffet.

Note that audio and large print versions will also be available.
