Well, I finished the fifth edition. It is kinda schizophrenic.
Some chapters are almost incomprehensible. Others are very
good. The book as a whole is kinda fragmented. I put this down
to the three authors not re-editing to find one authorial voice.

While I was reading the fifth edition I nailed a reprint copy
of the first edition on eBay and have started into that. The
first chapter (all I read last night) is a much better read
than the first chapter of the fifth edition.

Chris - got a pretty good book on Buffett at the used book store.
