—Stephen J. Dubner, coauthor of Freakonomics

"Altucher describes in easy-to-understand terms the strategies used by the smartest managers in the world—those who are running the hottest hedge funds—to show how they are making money today. SuperCa$h is a great primer for those who are looking to trade like the pros. And it helps that Altucher writes in a clear and fun style!"
—John Mauldin, President of Millennium Wave Advisors, LLC, and author of Bull's Eye Investing

As hedge funds have become more mainstream, some of their strategies have become less capable of producing extraordinary returns. In response to this, hedge funds and other sophisticated investors have found new ways to turn cash into supercash in today's tough markets.

In this book, hedge fund manager James Altucher examines new ways—currently utilized by hedge funds and savvy investors—to get beyond the efficiency of today's markets and supersize your returns.
