Publisher's Summary

This revised and updated edition of Inside the House of Money lifts the veil on the typically opaque world of hedge funds, offering a rare glimpse at how today's highest-paid money managers approach their craft. Now with new commentary, author Steve Drobny takes you even further into the hedge fund industry. He demystifies how these star traders make billions for their well-heeled investors, revealing their theories, strategies, and approaches to markets.

While some still maintain that rationality permeates financial markets, Drobny captures a different dimension, showing how the unquantifiable human forces of emotion and intuition are also at play. Along the way, listeners get an inside look at firsthand trading experiences through some of the major world financial crises of the last few decades, including tragedies such as September 11th. Whether its Russian bonds, Pakistani stocks, Southeast Asian currencies, or stakes in African brewing companies, no market or instrument is out of bounds for these elite global macro hedge fund managers.

Highly accessible and filled with in-depth expert opinion, Inside the House of Money is a must-listen for financial professionals and anyone else interested in understanding how greed, fear, and the human forces of emotion drive world markets.

    "Definitely Top of the list"
    What did you love best about Inside the House of Money: Top Hedge Fund Traders on Profiting in the Global Markets?

    Actual Ideas from successful Traders/Investors and even somewhat recent time periods


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inside the House of Money: Top Hedge Fund Traders on Profiting in the Global Markets?

    The general depth of the traders/investors mindset and lots of decent ideas


    Which character – as performed by James Langton – was your favorite?

    BAHAHAHAHAAHA Chapter 15 voice over Heckle and Jeckle AHAHAHAHA =]


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah but too long for that


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Market wizards by Jack Schwager with the in depth interviews and this book to me was very similar in structure.. and in even more of a recent time frame.. With over 470 books in my audio library and 95% of those in finance .. this one definitely ranks among the top tier that I will certainly listen to multiple times... Very well done!!!

    "Good insight into the mind of a successful trader."
    What did you love best about Inside the House of Money: Top Hedge Fund Traders on Profiting in the Global Markets?

    I you personally guide any of your investments, this book is worth reading. There are no direct investment ideas, but it gives great insight into the mental mind-set of those who win in the market. I found it humbling and it has already saved me money by changing my mindset on when to cut bait and when to keep fishing.

    "Great and important book"

    Great book because the subjects talk freely. Some people go to work and produce something. Farming, manufacturing, mining, healing, teaching, recycling, fishing, cooking, etc. These guys go to work to skim at any and all opportunities and inefficiencies that global finance can provide. Listen and learn how people formally useful only as pimps, thieves, con artists, smugglers, pirates, slave traders, filibusters, bootleggers now find employment in finance!

    Story
    "Not a Market Wzards, but is still informative"
    Where does Inside the House of Money: Top Hedge Fund Traders on Profiting in the Global Markets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say the middle. I wasn't too impressed with the book, especially after hearing Market Wizards. The storyline occurs in the 90s to mid 2000s and misses the financial crash entirely. You can see the prescience of some of the investors. This book was not as mind blowing as the others I've read but it's not useless or a waste of time either.


    Did James Langton do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He gets better towards the end but the first part is a bore. I sped up the book 1.25-1.50x as his slow British accent was putting me to sleep. You get more vocal variety towards the middle-end where it starts sounding good.

    Story
    "No nonsense in depth, knowledgable interviews"

    Quiet some good interviews with numerous hedge fund managers about the fascinating world of global macro investing, or in other words:How smart people profit from the insane dictates of our rulers, who create distortions in the markets that have to return to equilibrium.
    I had some small problems about some people's hope on regulation to fix the risk appetite problems. Unfortunately benefit is expected to have some people rule with implicit threats of violence over other people. It seems unlikely to me that people in the government, dabbling with the involuntary obtained money of their serfs, are reliably constraining the risk taking of hedge fund managers. Instead through their central banks put a back stop in the losses of hedge funds, aggravating the risk appetite.
    Other than that an interesting read if you are into this subject.

    "Not aimed at the small DIY investor"
    Would you listen to Inside the House of Money: Top Hedge Fund Traders on Profiting in the Global Markets again? Why?

    I intend to listen to this again in a year or so when I have more experience of bonds and options. As a DIY investor with a portfolio of the UK and USA equities only, most of this book was irrelevant to me and went over my head. It did inspire me to look at world markets and if I decide to invest in a Hedge Fund I will be more aware of what to look for. Oh and I will start reading the Economist.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    This book was written before the World Financial Crisis of 2008 and a lot of it referes to pre 2001 dot com bubble (though there is an additional chapter at the end that is more recent). I would like to have heard more since 2008.


    What three words best describe James Langton’s performance?

    This book consists of interviews with various hedge fund managers and Langton puts on a different voice for each I one. I have no idea how accurate he was but it brought the book to life for me.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I bet you can't sit through this film until the end without falling asleep


    Any additional comments?

    It's a long listen and as a small DIY trader you won't learn much listening to hedge fund managers with billions of dollars under management, but if you are interested in the general landscape of investing and want to broaden you knowledge it might be worth a listen.
