Good overview of personalities behind the larger, successful hedge funds. Each brief chapter (there are 18) covers a fund and its manager, as well as discusses a trade or two. With lively writing, it does not feel like you're reading templates.

Since I mostly focus on Buffett and other value style investing, it was interesting to survey the rest of the field -- from react-every-day and "you must have stop losses" to the commodity traders, to the more value, buy and hold types.

It was also interest

Shelves: investment
from a name-dropping perspective, rich pickings; from a contents-perspective, somewhat disappointing; anything new here that hasn't been covered in better style and in more depth elsewhere - nope. go for "The Invisible Hands" instead, which is a much better read

Worthwhile. The opening chapter has more highlighted nuggets than the rest of the books but there are insights scattered about. Mark Yusko offers a good framework for evaluating managers that would benefit anyone trying to make a discerning decision.

Good read about different successful hedge fund managers. Well written in that each paragraph tells you what you want to know about each money manager without getting into boring details. Seven to twelve pages per chapter, each chapter discussing one manager, his education and his investing style. An interesting read for anyone interested in the hedge fund world.

More of an analysis of hedge fund personalities than anything else. Not what I expected but it's still a decent read. I would have liked to know more about the old school masters like George Soros.

Pretty superficial look at a bunch of famous hedge fund managers. You get a few nuggets of wisdom, but otherwise it felt like reading a list of Bloomberg articles.

Recommends it for: everyone
Good overview of the hedge funds and short bios of hedge fund managers. Easy to read and informative.

Mostly gossip with a little bit about the best trade each person made.
Trivial and of little interest.
