Somewhat entertaining

Do the wizards interviewed have skill, or are they just lucky? We'll never know unless the author does a followup study a couple of decades from now. In either case, very little information presented in the book will help the average trader.

An indepth vew into Hedge Fund managers

What did you love best about Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

I like the question and answer format of the writing. Instead of an overlaid narrative (which there was some) the questions probed deeper in the theories behind why certain managers made the decisions they did. Also, moving from one subject to the next allowed for you to observe contrasts between the managers. No one style or investment process was favored in the book. It seemed as the writer wanted to illustrate the fact that there was no one key strategy that lead to success but there was underlying traits in each manager that was common to success.

What other book might you compare Hedge Fund Market Wizards to and why?

I would say the book 'Quants' by Scott Patterson. It tells a similar story and the characters are the same so you almost feel familar with them.
