I was lucky enough to receive a galley copy of this book and it is excellent. Cunningham researched Bershire's subsidiaries and performed multiple in-depth interviews with key Berkshire managers to understand the culture and to answer the question of how durable that culture is.

Any observer of business will find this book both fascinating and useful. It will enable a much deeper understanding of Berkshire Hathaway's remarakable culture, how it works, and why it will endure Beyond Buffett.

The books is an absolute must-read for any Value Investor or follower of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, as well as for a broader business audience.. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0231170041, Hardcover)

Berkshire Hathaway, the massive conglomerate that Warren Buffett built, is among the world's largest and most famous corporations. Yet, for all its power and celebrity, few people understand Berkshire, and many assume it cannot survive without Buffett. This book challenges that assumption.

In a comprehensive portrait of the corporate culture that unites Berkshire's subsidiaries, Lawrence Cunningham unearths the traits that assure the conglomerate's perpetual prosperity. Riveting stories of each subsidiary's origins, triumphs, and journey to Berkshire reveal how managers generate economic value from intangibles like thrift, integrity, entrepreneurship, autonomy, and a sense of permanence.

Berkshire Beyond Buffett explores not only what will happen to Berkshire after Buffett, but presents all of Berkshire behind Buffett, the inspiring managerial luminaries, innovative entrepreneurs, and devotees of deep values that define this esteemed organization.

Whether or not you are convinced that Berkshire can endure without Buffett, the book is full of management lessons for small and large businesses, entrepreneurs, family firms, and Fortune 500 CEOs.  Enjoy entertaining tales from Berkshire's 50 main subsidiaries, including Dairy Queen, GEICO, Benjamin Moore, Fruit of the Loom, BNSF, Justin, Pampered Chef, Marmon, Clayton Homes, FlightSafety, and more.
