"Don't let the title of the book fool you. Anthony Scaramucci has packed his latest book with everything you could possibly need to know about the secretive and often misunderstood hedge fund industry. From his extensive experience at Goldman Sachs, to his perch atop SkyBridge Capital, Anthony provides the reader with insight that up until now has been the domain of a privileged few. In succinct and plain English, Scaramucci explains the history of the hedge fund industry and its effect on the global markets. Anthony takes all the 'Wall Street jargon' and defines it in a fashion that won't make your eyes glaze over. If you have ever wondered what goes on behind the doors of some of the biggest hedge funds the world has ever known, this book is for you!"
Guy Adami, Managing Director, optionMONSTER,original member of CNBC's Fast Money
