Warren Buffett surprises teen cancer patient on CNBC



Some advice from Mr. Buffett:
Buffett's main piece of advice for Tre as he prepares to enroll in community college this fall: learn accounting so you can read financial statements. "Accounting is the language of business and there's nothing like getting it early and getting it into your system." 
Pointing out that accounting is a "language all of its own," Buffett said, "Getting comfortable in a foreign language takes a little experience, a little study, early on but it pays off big later on."

And for a few accounting-related books (I need to add more, I know), go HERE.
