Summary: -- Hedge Hogs Using emails, instant messages, court testimony, and exclusive interviews, securities analyst turned investigative reporter Barbara T.

Set in relief is the journey of John Arnold, whose mild manner, sophisticated tastes, and low profile belied his own ferocious competitive streak. As the two clash, hundreds of millions of dollars in pension and endowment money is imperiled, with devastating public consequences. -- -- -- --Bloomberg "A telling insider's story on how hedge funds are playing high-stakes poker for massive personal profits and stealing the American Dream from average families . . . This is a case study that cries out for tougher crackdowns on the derivatives game. -- "-- -- Named One of the Top 10 Business & Economics Books of the Season by -- From the Hardcover edition.
