Having finished Traders, Guns & Money, I’ve moved on to Barton BiggsHedgehogging. Hedgehogging is quite different from TGM. TGM is a mixture of anecdote, industry history and entry level tutorial on product structure. I learnt a lot, especially about products I’m unfamiliar with, like credit derivatives. Hedgehogging is all story telling, but no poorer for that, as the prose quality is very high, and at times very funny. Not many books about investment management can make me laugh out loud on the Northern Line at 6.45am !  I guess the closest comparison would be with Niederhoffer‘s EdSpec.

  1. Dear Coding the Markets,

    As someone who has reviewed hedge funds books on your site, Bloomberg Press would like to offer you a complimentary copy of the new book Hedge Hunters by Katherine Burton for a possible review on Coding the Markets.com.

    In Hedge Hunters, some of the most notable names in the business–including Michael Steinhardt, Boone Pickens, and Julian Robertson –discuss their paths to success, revealing some of their strategies and the trades of which they’re most
    proud. They explain how they spot talent and, most important, they name the people they see as the top undiscovered managers to watch. Burton sought out these “picks of the masters” and got them to talk about what it takes to succeed
    and how they will face the challenges ahead in turbulent markets.

    Burton reveals the personalities, individual passions, and influences behind the larger-than-life deals these investors engineer.

    More info about Hedge Hunters is available at our website: http://www.bloomberg.com/books

    To receive a complementarily review copy, please reply and include your shipping address.
