“Refreshing and transcending, all at once. In a world loaded with theoretical market opinions, we finally get a view from a credible market practitioner. Lacalle gets it because he does it, every day.”
Keith R. McCullough, Chief Executive Officer, Hedgeye Risk Management

“Accessible and easy to read, but also thorough and rigorous. This book will be an excellent read for anyone wanting to understand financial markets, monetary policies and investing.”
Lex Van Dam, Trader/Partner, Hamstead Capital

“Lacalle has used his first–hand experiences to give a dose of reality and demystify the markets and the hedge fund industry. He cuts through the jargon and has given insight into how the markets and the real–world economy interlink. Lacalle shows us that the key ingredients that led to the last financial crisis, ie huge debt levels, are still with us now and could set the scene for the next one.”
Steve Sedgwick, Host, Squawk Box CNBC

“Intimate, insightful, inspiring. Daniel Lacalle, a top commentator and fund manager, explains in layman’s terms how financial markets actually work by adding his unique personal perspective. A page–turner.”
Francisco Blanch, Managing Director/Head of Commodity Research, Bank of America–Merrill Lynch
