Since 1969, the financial world has been charting the meteoric rise of master investor and hedge fund king George Soros. The methods and tactics he has used to reach the zenith of an industry more often littered with catastrophic loss than paved with golden success have for years been Soros' most carefully guarded secret. Now, renown biographer and Time reporter Robert Slater uncovers the brillian techniques and remarkable insights that have led to the phonomenal success of this Hungarian-born investment titan--and separates the truth from the mystery and exaggerations that surround him. Also revealed: How George Soros rose from modest beginnings to become the most powerful investor in the world; Details of the United States goverment's investigation into George Soros' enourmous influence over world financial markets; George Soros' dream of bringing political reform, education, prosperity, and hope to underdeveloped nations in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and around the world through his philantropic Soros Foundation.
