Very well written and well narrated hedge fund history. Go to amazon.com for in-depth reviews on the print edition. It is well worth it!

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

lack of substance

Last for 8 hours, but the points are very far in between. Way too much talking but way too little substance, and nothing beyond the common sense.
