Wow, another book that necessitates either a couple sentence quick recap, or a 25 page analysis. Since I doubt anyone cares to spend the time to read that lengthy of a review I will keep my comments brief.
Awesome review of the history of hedge funds and the biographies of some of the biggest and most successful managers. Very fun and fast read considering it is a roughly 400 page book. Of course it is geared perfectly towards my interests, but nevertheless I think anyone with even a mild interest in high finance and hedge funds would enjoy it. The author did an awesome job covering tons and tons of information in a high tempo manner! I think the notes section was 30 pages or more with hundreds or maybe even over a thousand references.
I’ve read plenty of “hedge fund history” books through the years, and barring Michael Lewis’s work this is by far one of the best!
