Munger has never been afraid to tell it like it is, in a manner more akin to a fire-and-brimstone preacher than a slick-tongued investment guru desperate not to offend
Is the page count shorter because they have abridged it by removing content or because it is a smaller form factor? The Almanack is like a coffee table book with a ton of illustrations and other features that make it longer. I can see how if the new version is mostly text it could be shorter in pages while still having all the content. I agree that it would be crazy to remove content from a classic.
Excellent points. Munger does seem to be one of the few voices reminding and inspiring us to be a good moral example for others.
I will cheerfully sell you my copy of Poor Charlie’s Almanac. I am at a point in life where I am thinning out the library by selling or giving away my books. Let me know.
Enjoyed this and the reference to a few of Charlie‘s older speeches. Thank you for the summary.
