From composer, musician, and philanthropist Peter Buffett comes a warm, wise,
and inspirational book that asks, Which will you choose: the path of least
resistance or the path of potentially greatest satisfaction?

You may think that with a last name like his, Buffett has enjoyed a life of
endless privilege. But the son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett says that
the only real inheritance handed down from his parents was a philosophy: Forge
your own path in life. It is a creed that has allowed him to follow his own
passions, establish his own identity, and reap his own successes.

In Life Is What You Make It, Buffett expounds on the strong set of values given
to him by his trusting and broadminded mother, his industrious and talented
father, and the many life teachers he has met along the way.

Today’s society, Buffett posits, has begun to replace a work ethic, relishing
what you do, with a wealth ethic, honoring the payoff instead of the process. We
confuse privilege with material accumulation, character with external
validation. Yet, by focusing more on substance and less on reward, we can open
doors of opportunity and strive toward a greater sense of fulfillment. In clear
and concise terms, Buffett reveals a great truth: Life is random, neither fair
nor unfair.

From there it becomes easy to recognize the equal dignity and value of every
human life—our circumstances may vary but our essences do not. We see that our
journey in life rarely follows a straight line but is often met with false
starts, crises, and blunders. How we push through and persevere in these
challenging moments is where we begin to create the life of our dreams—from
discovering our vocations to living out our bliss to giving back to others.

Personal and revealing, instructive and intuitive, Life Is What You Make It is
about transcending your circumstances, taking up the reins of your destiny, and
living your life to the fullest.
