"The crash of 2008 crushed "real money" investors (endowments, pensions, foundations and family offices). World markets from real estate and equities to comodities and credit-collapsed. Some of the world's most venerable financial institutions disappeared, while many hedge fund, private equity, venture capital, and real asset managers suffered immense losses. Yet, the world has not ended, and now, all investors must adapt to the new reality."--Book jacket.

This is a fantastic book that covers macro hedge fund managers and their trading strategies. I am not a trader, but I have a pretty good foundation in Finance and this book was stretching my understanding and vocabulary to their limits. Drobny does have small grey boxes within the text that explain certain terms or conditions, but there are some things that are left for the reader to understand on their own. To be honest I was having difficulties piecing together the reasoning for a few of the trades that were explained in the interviews, but this is actually a good thing because it forced me to think. The author asks some of the best questions I have come across and he really understands the industry himself. The answers from the fund managers range from down right enlightening to just dribble we have heard a hundred times. This is a must read for someone in the trading field. If you are going to read this you should place it at the top of your list because some of the information will become more dated as time passes although much of the advice is timeless. Some of the predictions that are made have actually been spot on so go get this book and give it a try you may just learn something.
