Damn Right

I've a read quite a bit about Charlie Munger. But everything I've previously read has been about his thoughts. Damn Right: Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger is about the person, his family life, his tragedies and triumphs.

The book really humanizes a guy whose public persona is that of a grump. He teaches us to be unemotional when making important decisions, and so it's been hard for me to see him as anything more than a logical robot that does nothing but take in inputs, analyze and crank out proper outputs.

There is a lot more to the man than just his teachings, however. I appreciated the book for providing a different dimension to this influential educator.
