    A very interesting book about the world of trading. For those (well this includes me) who think that people with a bunch of milions (like 5 or 10) dollars are rich people say hello to corporations that manage billions of dollars in assets. Well this is capitalism at the highest level. I must confess that I felt a little depressed when reading about this world. But, regardless the feelings you might have, this is a very educational book. The contents here presented offer you an oportunity to review your concept of money and how the big financial corporations work. This is, however, a very taxonomical work. You'll be injected with a plethora of concepts and financial instruments and respective variations. For this reason is to hope that you might feel the need for a second reading (as in my case, as my academic formation is not economics).

    Anything Coggan writes is worth reading; he's one of the best financial journalists in the world. (I still rue his departure from the FT.) If you're new to hedge funds, this is a lucid, balanced overview. If you work in the industry, you may glean a fact or two (though not more), but will certainly appreciate his uncanny intimations of the hedge fund cataclysm of 2008.
