An Interview with TMFBuckeye

Last updated: 11/22/2013
The Fool:
What's the best restaurant you've ever been to? (Include name, location, and average bill for two.)
St. Elmo's Steakhouse in Indianapolis, IN. Bill for two can easily top $100. Well worth it as the filet is life-altering.
The Fool:
Briefly review your favorite book.
Written before he gave interviews for biographers, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist by Roger Lowenstein is a masterpiece that is both well written and well researched. Taking Buffett from his childhood in Omaha Nebraska to the late 90s as the world's most prominent and successful billionaire investor the book gives useful insights into both the investment methods and personal life of this extremely interesting figure.
The Fool:
What seemingly insurmountable challenge did you meet and defeat?
Found a woman that would marry me!

How I Invest

While not for the faint of heart I prefer looking for deep value/distressed situations. I've found that if the situation is right this can be a lot lower risk because the price paid in relation to value is so low.
