Randy Cepuch wrote mutual fund annual reports and other financial publications for 30 years, always with the goal of helping investors to understand what they own. His humorous business travelogue — A Weekend With Warren Buffett and Other Shareholder Meeting Adventures (published by Thunder’s Mouth Press, now Perseus Books, in 2007) — received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which said it “ranks among the best commonsense investment books, and is certainly one of the most fun to read.”
Cepuch is also a securities dispute arbitrator, an election officer, and a pie judge. He reads approximately 100 books a year, with favorite subjects including travel, music, wine, and business (ideally all at once).
