Summary

From an award-winning financial journalist who has written for The New Yorker, Time, and Fortune, a fresh and unexpectedly profound book that draws on interviews with more than forty of the world’s super-investors to demonstrate that the keys for building wealth hold other life lessons as well.

Billionaire investors. If we think of them, it’s with a mixture of awe and suspicion. Clearly, they possess a kind of genius—the proverbial Midas Touch. But are the skills they possess transferable? And would we really want to be them? Do they have anything to teach us besides making money?

In Richer, Wiser, Happier, award-winning journalist William Green has spent nearly twenty-five years interviewing these investing wizards and discovered that their talents expand well beyond the financial realm and into practical philosophy. As he discovered, most of these men and women view the world in a more interconnected way. They look broadly at the culture, are remarkably intuitive about trends, practice fanatical discipline, and have developed a high tolerance for pain. They are also stunningly good at boiling down the maddeningly complex to two or three easy variables.

Green ushers us into the lives of more than forty of the world’s super-investors, visiting them in their offices, vacation homes, and even their places of worship—all to share what they have to teach us. Richer, Wiser, Happier brings together the thinking of some of the best investors, from Warren Buffett to Howard Marks to John Templeton, and provides gems of insight that will enrich you not only financially but also professionally and personally.
