I learned a lot from listening to Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger over this past weekend -- and my respect for them only increased as I saw more evidence of their high standards, their integrity, and their extremely rational approach to investing. I was awestruck by Buffett's devotion to his shareholder/partners, and the way that he made himself so available to so many. He was everywhere. I saw him at several different events over the weekend, and like many people, got to say hello to him, as well. It was almost surprising that he wasn't at the airport seeing us off.

For those who would like to learn more about Berskshire Hathaway and/or Warren Buffett, I'll list a bunch of resources below. I think that every investor owes it to himself and his portfolio to learn more about Warren Buffett and his thoughts on investing. You don't have to subscribe to all his beliefs -- and you don't have to buy his stock. But you're likely to end up a smarter and more successful investor if you take the time to think about his actions and words.

The Berkshire Hathaway Website http://www.berkshirehathaway.com
This is where you can access several decades' worth of Buffett's annual letters to shareholders. I can't recommend these enough. Each is written very clearly and contains many nuggets of investing wisdom.
