This book is dedicated posthumously to Tom Barnes, chief engineer of the S.S. Yellowstone in 1978. Without him, I would not be here to write this book.
To those of you who insisted that I write this book. To my wife Debby who “forced” me to write the first edition and for Tula of Wiley Publishing who insisted I write this second edition.
To my wonderful family who always stood behind me. Always. I miss you dad.
And, of course, to both Jimmy and Warren Buffett. If you want to live life on the beach like Jimmy, you have to learn to invest like Warren.
