Warren Buffett is different from the rest of the super-rich in many ways, large and small.
He makes investment sound simple and has a talent for explaining it to the public.
But, as his biographer, Alice Schroeder says in BBC Two’s ‘The World’s Greatest Money Maker: Evan Davis meets Warren Buffett’, his method is “simple, but it’s not easy”.
There’s more to the billionaire investor than meets the eye. However simple he’d like to make earning $40bn (£25bn) look, the Buffett story isn’t entirely straightforward.
