Publisher's Summary

The Alpha Masters is the ultimate behind-the-curtain look at the hedge fund industry, unlocking the most valuable stories, secrets, and lessons directly from those who have played the game best.
Written by Maneet Ahuja, the hedge fund industry insider, The Alpha Masters brings the secretive world of hedge funds into the light of day for the first time. As the authority that the biggest names in the business, including John Paulson, David Tepper, and Bill Ackman, go to before breaking major news, Ahuja has access to the innermost workings of the hedge fund industry. For the first time, in Alpha Masters, Ahuja provides both institutional and savvy private investors with tangible, analytical insight into the psychology of the trade, the strategies and investment criteria serious money managers use to determine and evaluate their positions, and special guidance on how the reader can replicate this success themselves.
There are few people with access to the inner chambers of the hedge fund industry, and as a result it remains practically uncharted financial territory. Alpha Masters changes all that, shedding light on star fund managers and how exactly they consistently outperform the market. The audiobook:


Contains easy-to-follow chapters that are broken down by strategy: Long/Short, Event Arbitrage, Value, Macro, Distressed, Quantitative, Commodities, Activist, Pure Short, Fund of Funds
Includes insights from the biggest names in the trading game, including Ray Dalio, Marc Lasry, Jim Chanos, Sonia Gardner, Pierre Lagrange, and Tim Wong
Features contributions from industry icon Mohamed El-Erian
Many of the subjects profiled in this groundbreaking new book have never spoken so candidly about their field, providing extremely provocative, newsworthy analysis of today's investing landscape.

What the Critics Say

"Maneet Ahuja's The Alpha Masters is a must for anyone working on Wall Street - or anyone planning to work on Wall Street. Getting even one of these titans of the industry to talk on record would be an impressive feat (and I know this because I've tried unsuccessfully to interview at least two of the people featured in here!), but getting all of them together in one place is simply herculean. Maneet quite clearly has the magic touch, and The Alpha Masters kept me busy on a round trip to Vegas, with a few extra hours on the tarmac. Great work, fun listen, and a unique, fresh voice." (Ben Mezrich, author of 12 books including the New York Times best sellers Bringing Down the House, which was adapted into the movie 21, and The Accidental Billionaires, which was adapted into the Oscar-winning movie The Social Network)

Interesting book, terrible listen

Any additional comments?

Loved the information and stories in the book. HATED the narrator. Do you remember the driest math professor you ever had? Yup now picture listening to him for 7 hours

now I understand hedge funds.

Okay let's just say that I liked it. no need to go overboard. it was informative and enlightening. the speaker had a rather deadpan monolog, which keeps the book from getting a stellar review.
