Damn Right: Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger

I was interested to know more about Charlie Munger after reading the almanac. The opportunity presented itself in the form of this book. I had read Janet Lowe's Warren Buffett Speaks: Wit and Wisdom from the World's Greatest Investor some years ago as well.

A few things about Charlie comes out:-
* Love of books - biographies and other non-fiction
* Great thinking ability
* Charlie's personality hidden behind the curmudgeonly shell
* Social Responsibility through support of various causes like abortion rights and health care

Even an accomplished author like Janet Lowe is unable to do justice and unravel the life, thoughts and business history of the complicated personality of Charles Thomas Munger. The book is divided into various chapters, not so much in a chronological fashion. There are some of his speeches reproduced in the appendix as well.
