This is a book by a Washington Post editorialist about hedge funds. I expected it would be a snoozer and about as exciting as a C-span roundtable, but it was pretty good. He got interviews with all the big names, like Soros, Kovner, Steinhardt, etc. And he asks the interesting question, how did they make their money? For the Commodities Corp. crowd, it was trend following while advertising themselves as fundamental researchers, especially in currencies. (There was something called the "white book" by the founder Hostetter, which was a list of trading rules. Would be interested if that's floating around. Kovner also mentions that unexplained price movements are the most powerful, which is an interesting tip). For Steinhardt, it was getting inside info in exchange for brokerage fees. Soros bet big when he had an edge, like when he got a tip that the Thai treasury was going to devalue. PT Jones comes across as a classic tape reader, and you can see that in his documentary, too. Recommended.
