    "Great content, not the easiest listen"

    Probably a better read. Or have multiple narrators. Good to hear how others use different techniques. Worth the time for sure.

    Ray Dalio

    Worth 1000 times each cent spent.

    "Concise and Broad"

    He interviews a broad range of traders and fund managers, and does a great job pulling out the most relevant content from each one. Very effective.

    Recommended by a friend, and I'll recommend it to my friends. My first market wizard read, and I'm now downloading another from the series.

    "Worth listening to"
    Where does Hedge Fund Market Wizards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is probably the most useful audiobook I have listened to so far. You get a lot of interesting, and sometimes conflicting perspectives from the various fund managers that were interviewed. Each manager has their own advice to give based on what has worked for them, but the key is that it worked for them and would not necessarily work for another fund manager.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite interview in this book is with Kevin Daly since his approach aligns most with my own inclinations.


    What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?

    I like the way that the narrator adjusts his pace and tone to reflect the characters of the different fund managers that were interviewed.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    -Determine what approach to trading best suits you as a trader-Stop doing what doesn't work, do more of what works


    Any additional comments?

    I have read 'Market Wizards' and 'The New Market Wizards' and I think that this newer book is worth reading also. The interviews reinforce some of the insight from the earlier books while adding context from the 2008 market crash and plenty of fresh insight.

    "Just love this audio book"
    What did you love best about Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    From general to specific tips on investing, this book got it all. The interviewer is thorough with his line of questions that he was able to extract the most useful information about investing. Some of the specific ideas are a bit over my head since I'm just starting to learn, but the general ideas are just superb. Moreover, listening to the real technical stuff is making me feel like I'm more knowledgeable about investing in general, even though the first 4 chapters (that's how far I am in the book) dealt mostly with macro economics, and credit, fixed income, & FX markets. These hedge fund managers are brilliant, makes me jealous, haha.

    "Great insight into the HF manager's experience"
    Where does Hedge Fund Market Wizards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say this would rank behind to Market Wizards but it's currency/recency makes up for it. Market Wizards is definitely in my top 3 trading books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ray Dalio's insight on the world is amazing, I like his perspective on leveraging/deleveraging and inflation/deflation. It basically predicts our course via his historical knowledge. I also picked up great trading tips such as predefining your risk from putting a stop in an area that would get hit ONLY if you are wrong and THEN decide your position size based on the losses incurred from that stop. There are many gems like this and many perspectives and interesting autobiographies.


    What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?

    Narration felt boring at first but then it grows on you as you see more vocal variety. I still like Jack D. Schwager's narration of his own Market Wizard's book more. It sounded more 'chummy/unique?', but of course, no one can narrate a book as well as its author as they met with the characters personally.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    Definitely the risk management techniques.
    I would also look further in Ray Dalio's work, he has a 120 pager he makes his employees read.
