Excellent look inside the head of guys that control billions of dollars. There are some common themes among these managers and some one off insightful ideas. You will find yourself reading these interviews over and over. Very worthwhile book to put in your library. Read full review

Great book that keeps an often dry subject interesting. The interviews are very interesting, and it's nice to have many different perspectives of the Global Macro World. I felt the most interesting interview was the one with the PayPal creator Peter Thiel, who now runs Clarium Capital.
