Throughout the violent financial disruptions of the past several years, three men have stood out as beacons of judgment and wisdom: Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Paul Volcker. Though their experiences and styles vary—Buffett is the canny stock-market investor, Soros the reader of shifting global tides in trade and currencies, Volcker the regulator and governor, sheriff and clean-up crew—they have very much in common.

All three men have more than fifty years of deep involvement in markets. All are skeptical of Wall Street frenzies. They believe that markets tend to be right, but usually only over the medium term. Today, all three are key economic advisors to President Obama.

With the benefit of his own deep understanding of markets and finance, Morris brilliantly analyzes the records of these men, distils their wisdom and experience, and argues for the importance of consistent values in navigating the treacherous terrain of today’s globalized world.

    " A churned out book as simple as a senior thesis. Subjects are lauded as virtually flawless; economics is treated as a joke. Not enough substance to back up any of these points. But you will learn a little something about each figure, so the book as some value as a quick read. "

    " Enjoyed the book, although this is one I should have read in hard copy rather than an audio book, due to the complexity of the financial jargon. "
