20th Mar - Schwager: Hedge Fund Wizards

Jack D. Schwager, the author of the classic Market Wizards-books, is coming out with a new one: Hedge Fund Market WizardsAmazon, other books by Schwager here. The book is out in May, preorder now.

I had the opportunity to listen to his pitch in Futures and Options World exhibition, Frankfurt am Main, Spring 2003 and have read the Wizards. Even though the books are light on actual content, the interviews were entertaining and inspirational and I recently read them again.
