1. Margin of Trust: The Berkshire Business Model by Larry Cunningham and Stephanie Cuba. Cunningham and Cuba develop a new account of how Berkshire Hathaway works, showing that the key to its success is trust. Profiling partnership practices and business methods, they contend that Berkshire's distinguishing feature is a culture in which autonomy and decentralization are core management principles. They provide instructive examples of how this model has been successfully adapted by other companies that share a faith in trust as an organizing principle. They also offer candid commentary on the risks of a trust-based approach and how to mitigate them. Margin of Trust features illuminating analysis of Buffett's take on the role trust plays in business agreements, what Buffett looks for in great corporate boards, and what lies ahead for Berkshire after its iconic leader leaves the scene.

2.  My New Berkshire ABC by Nancy Rips, illustrated by Matt Haney. Kids will learn the alphabet the Warren Buffett way: A is for Apple, B is for Benjamin Moore, C is for Coca Cola, D is for Duracell. It’s everyone’s favorite family Berkshire book, brand new and updated for 2020! 

 3. <Charlie Munger's Pick> The Club: Johnson, Boswell, and the Friends Who Shaped an Age by Leo Damrosch. In 1763, the painter Joshua Reynolds proposed to his friend Samuel Johnson that they invite a few friends to join them every Friday at the Turk's Head Tavern in London to dine, drink, and talk until midnight. Eventually the group came to include among its members Edmund Burke, Adam Smith, Edward Gibbon, and James Boswell. It was known simply as "the Club." Damrosch brings alive a brilliant, competitive, and eccentric cast of characters. With the friendship of the "odd couple" Samuel Johnson and James Boswell at the heart of his narrative, Damrosch conjures up the precarious, exciting, and often brutal world of late eighteenth-century Britain. This is the story of an extraordinary group of people whose ideas helped to shape their age, and our own.

4. <New Edition> Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett- 2020 Elephant Edition by Andrew Kilpatrick. This extensively updated biography provides insights into the tactics and strategies of the “Oracle of Omaha.” Kilpatrick traces Buffett from childhood, and provides a unique, in-depth look into Buffett’s life and mind. This is the “Buffett Bible” - the definitive story, updated to include recent events. It includes 2400 photographs.
