Too detailed for my taste
This unusually long book has some pretty intense stuff that can potentially turn off real traders who have better things to do than re-live through the boring childhood of Mr. Buffet

More a biography and ethics book, making it great!
Let’s get this straight right off the bat: this is not a book of investment advice. If you’re looking for a book on investing according to Buffett’s principles, look elsewhere – I recommend starting with a good book on the principles of value investing, like The Intelligent Investor (which I will get around to reviewing at some point).

Instead, this book belongs solidly in the biography section. This is a portrait of a person, and like any person, there are a lot of interesting facets and features. There are amazing strokes of genius, and there are flaws as well. A good biography takes a one dimensional image that we all know (Warren Buffett, investor extraordinaire) and fills him out as a three dimensional person, a person with love, with passion, with sadness, with high points and low points, with character and vitality.

Buffett – The Making of an American Capitalist is a very good biography. Buffett is a highly compelling subject, and with Lowenstein’s skill, it’s easily the best biography I’ve read of a modern investor, and it’s one of the rare books that I will keep and read again. If you have any interest in who Warren Buffett is as a person, pick this up and read it – it’s well worth the time.

An aside: if you’re simply interested in a great biography, read anything by Edmund Morris, especially The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Theodore Rex, and Dutch. Edmund Morris is a truly great biographer, and perhaps my favorite writer of all.

mostly fluff
buffet doesn't divulge anything interesting here really just sticks to basic politically-correct theories. In other words, there's no murder scenes or backdoor deals or trucks full of gold being stolen. Surely, he has a lot more he can reveal that would make markets more transparent and useful.
