Warren Buffett On Ben Graham

October 05, 2009
“If I have seen further it is by standing on ye shoulders of Giants.” –Isaac Newton

In The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis, Warren Buffett contributes to the titles by writing a foreword or giving permission to republish the letter he wrote on Ben Graham shortly after he passed away.While the influence is obvious on paper, you really do not get to see the face expressions, tone of voice, etc. that really show how Warren Buffett feels about Benjamin Graham. Words come to life in the Warren Buffett on Ben Graham video which I recently found. While I do not know the exact date of the video, my guess it was recorded around the time the 6th edition ofSecurity Analysis was released (September 2008).

Thanks for that Alex. Here's a couple of quotes from the video that I found particularly interesting:

"I got a bedrock of investment philosophy that really hasn't changed ever since I read the book - I may embellish on it a little here and there..." (referring to Intelligent Investor)

"He wrote a book that 75 or so years later we're still reading it to learn new things every day..." (referring to Security Analysis)

I personally like the quote where Graham gave Buffett free dance lessons and Buffett called it "the worst investment he ever made"
