    Rare is the opportunity to chat with a legendary figure and hear the unvarnished truth about what really goes on behind the scenes. Step inside the world of Wall Street with Barton Biggs as he discusses investing in general, hedge funds in particular, and how he has learned to find and profit from the best moneymaking opportunities in an eat-what-you-kill, cutthroat investment world.

    Overall

    Hedgehogging has a intriguing title, but does not deliver either as an educational book about hedge funds, or as a series of anecdotes. It consists of some disjointed stories of hedge investing, but does not take the time to explain the terms or theory behind these investments. While there are some nuggets of useful investment advice, the tone of the narrator makes it sound as if the author's main goal was to impress the reader with his intelligence, not to educate or entertain. This narration style may be true to the author, but it made me feel like I was trapped at dinner with with an annoying self-important host.
