The publication of Warren Buffett's authorized biography is such a big deal that Portfolio is reviewing it in three parts. The reviewer of Part I described it as slow: "Like many biographies, it starts off with something eye-catching and juicy" -- a 1999 Sun Valley scene in which Buffett confronts the tech titans about their bubble problem -- "before jumping back to ancestors and heritage." But the book apparently picks up speed as it rolls along. If you can't get enough of the Oracle of Omaha, you'll want to watch his biographer's weekly YouTube series.
