Warren Buffett Answers Your Emails: Download the Full CNBC Transcript


Just days before Warren Buffett was named the world's richest person by Forbes this week, CNBC brought you another first for the Omaha billionaire.

On Monday, Buffett sat down with our Becky Quick in Omaha for a series of live appearances throughout Squawk Box's three-hour program. Buffett generated international headlines when he told Becky the U.S. is already in a recession by a "common sense definition."

He also answered questions from Becky and the rest of the Squawk Team, as he usually does when he's on the program.

What made it unprecedented? Buffett stayed for the entire three hours of Squawk and he also answered questions from people around the world. Those questions were selected from the more than 3000 emails you sent in response to an invitation last week here on CNBC.com's Warren Buffett Watch.

There have already been 15 WBW posts devoted to our "Ask Warren" extravaganza, including a summary, a live blog for each hour (6am, 7am, 8am ET), and a transcript divided into 11 parts.

Now that the dust has settled a bit, I've been able to create a "Collector's Edition" version which assembles the entire transcript into one easy-to-read and easy-to-download PDF document with a large font and lots of space between the lines of text.

I also put in a photo of Buffett and Becky "on-set" at the Nebraska Furntiture Mart (a Berkshire subsidiary, of course.)

It's a little something to read over the weekend. Enjoy!
