  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zbegniew | 2/4/2014

    " I enjoyed this book a lot and learned a lot about the natural history of hedge funds, what they do and how they do it. It helps if you already have some basic knowledge of economics and the financial markets, otherwise you may spend a lot of time looking up terms and concepts. The author's approach is anecdotal and biographical rather than analytical, which makes it an easier read. It's a pretty long book, but it kept me interested. I'd recommend it to anyone who has a basic knowledge of how financial markets work, but who wants to understand a little more about hedge funds and how they differ from the some of the other big money players in the financial markets. "
