Veteran Time reporter and renowned biographer Robert Slater probes Soros's financial genius to give readers insight to the unique investment philosophy, strategies, methods, and tactics that have given George Soros enormous influence over world financial markets and in 1993 made him America's largest money-earner (a record-breaking $1.1 billion).
Since 1992, the Soros Foundations he created to fund political reform in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union have given away $500 million - and have plans to give away $500 million more. Soros is the fascinating story of this enigmatic master investor, philanthropist, and self-styled philosopher.

From the Back Cover:

The truth behind the self-made billionaire investor who makes his OWN rules! ``It's an interesting read because many people, particularly investors, crave to know more about Soros.''--George C. Marcial, Across the Board. ``Like a modern-day riverboat gambler, Soros can be cool as ice even when the stakes are high.''--Investor's Business Daily. Until now, the brilliant methods and tactics that world-renowned investor and hedge fund king George Soros used to amass billions have remained a closely-guarded secret. In Soros: The Unauthorized Biography, renowned biographer and former Time reporter Robert Slater has looked behind closed doors to reveal the unique philosophy and investment strategies that have given this Hungarian-born billionaire enormous influence over world financial markets. This intimate and insightful biography examines Soros' extraordinary life, his outspoken opinions, and the hundreds of millions of dollars in philanthropy that have made George Soros an influential business, social, and political figure throughout Eastern Europe and the world.
