I''d have to agree with the Amazon reviews ( that Strachman does not much more than cut and paste previous articles, and that his writing is so personally worshipful that polemic gets in the way of sound reporting. That said, I didn't know much about Robertson till I read this, and there is some value to summarizing things up.

There is some value add in the later chapters when he tries to digest what went wrong with Tiger and when he is talking about the T

While it was interesting to learn about a revered hedge fund manager, the book lacked details and was not very well-written. I would have liked more specific examples of the research process, more details around the evolution of the firm's AUM, and more specific stories that relayed Robertson's competitive nature and tendency to push people beyond their limits. So, while interesting, it was a bit of a disappointment overall.

This book was well written and explores the life of an investing legend, oftimes providing over 35% returns for his investors NET of fees. Not only is he an investing legend, but he also trained so many great managers. The father of the tiger cubs provided a great legacy that is recorded in this biography.

Great book about the once world's greatest hedge-fund. Enjoyed reading the book, although it repeats itself quite a bit. The last chapter, about Robertson's philantrophy, was quite boring and did not leave a good aftertaste.

I was expecting more in depth exploration of the guys behind Tiger and Robertson's investment approach and philosophy and techniques. More could have been done, but overall a good and light read for anyone interested in knowing more about the Queen Bee of Wall Street
