A very unique trading book that I would recommend to anyone in the business. The author is definitely very qualified and effectively shares his framework of macro trading to the reader. There aren't very many books out there that do this. You don't necessarily have to agree with everything in his framework, but can take pieces here and there for your own improvement which is what the author intends.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. The author is a very intelligent person, and clearly knows his stuff. However his trading record is pretty mixed, among other things running a hedge fund that immediately went bust. After hitting it big with a long bonds trade recently, he's reached a Eureka state where apparently he seems to think he's conquered the markets.

There's some very interesting ideas here and I've noted a few things to consider when planning big macro trades myself. However
