From the Back Cover:

“In a world where few understand their complexities, Money Mavericks provides a compelling and accurate insight into the secretive workings of a hedge fund.”

Tets Ishikawa, author of How I Caused the Credit Crunch

 

“I read this book cover to cover, and enjoyed every bit of it. The hedge fund industry is not known for its modesty, yet this book is not only full of fascinating information but is refreshing in this respect as well.”

Andrei Shleifer, Professor of Economics, Harvard University

 

“Without sensationalising, Lars tells it like it is – a no-holds-barred, warts-and-all account of what it’s like to try and set up and run a hedge fund.”

Neil Wilson, editor, Eurohedge

 

“A compelling and demystifying chronicle of hedge funds, and of hedge fund managers.  Lars’ experience is by no means novel in the industry, but his perspective most certainly is.”

Drew Dickson, Managing Partner, Dickson Capital Management

 

Some call them ‘grotesque’, others as ‘absolutely crazy bodies’, and still more refer to them as ‘hellish’: hedge fund managers are stealthy, wealthy and tend to avoid the spotlight. But is this fair?  

Read on to find out.
