Excellent and deep. Nothing you can take away and immediately implement, but tons to chew over about how these top money managers (across different asset classes -- bonds, equities, commodities, multi strat) approach the markets, think about and dig deep into what they do. Definitely something to reread and I will get for my shelf when the paperback comes out.

One thing I do take-away, which I have suspected for a while, is that top money managers with large portfolios all use deep fundamental research. Many do use technical analysis and price action to enter/exit trades, but their positions seem to almost invariably hang on a fundamental view. Several managers also make interesting distinctions between portfolio management (even that at a hedge fund), proprietary trading, and real money management (pension funds, endowments, etc).
