“Until now, the brilliant methods and tactics that world-renowned investor and hedge fund king George Soros used to amass billions have remained a closely-guarded secret. In Soros: The Unauthorized Biography, renowned biographer and former Time reporter Robert Slater has looked behind closed doors to reveal the unique philosophy and investment strategies that have given this Hungarian-born billionaire enormous influence over world financial markets. This intimate and insightful biography examines SorosÕ extraordinary life, his outspoken opinions, and the hundreds of millions of dollars in philanthropy that have made George Soros an influential business, social, and political figure throughout Eastern Europe and the world.”
Editorial Reviews
From Publishers Weekly
This interesting, readable, unauthorized biography of George Soros traces the life of a successful money manager across two continents. A blue-eyed, blond boy who enjoyed playing a Hungarian version of Monopoly in Budapest soon was delivering deportation notices to other Hungarian Jews after the Jewish Council of Budapest recruited children for that task. After WWII, Soros waited tables in London before enrolling in the London School of Economics. He came to New York in 1956 armed with a competitive edge?a knowledge of the European financial markets. This insight and his ability to discern long-term trends enabled him to become a successful investor and later successfully manage the Quantum Fund, according to Slater, a reporter for Time magazine. The life and times of George Soros are indeed interesting, but the "trading secrets" of the title are based more on his intuition than on objective evidence. An example: when choosing stocks in an industry, pick two?the best and the worst. The reader is left without further guidance in applying this rule (e.g., what is the worst software company?). Read this biography to learn about the interesting life of a successful financial manager rather than specific steps on how you too can successfully manage money. 25,000 first printing.

From Library Journal
Hungarian-born investor Soros, already well known for the unmatched success of his Quantum Fund, achieved additional notoriety in 1992 when he amassed over $1 billion in profits with the collapse of the British pound. He is also recognized for his philanthropic activities, having established foundations in several Eastern European nations. Soros on Soros is a book-length interview, conducted by the managing director of Morgan Stanley and a Hungarian journalist. Its scope reaches far beyond the topic of investing and includes Soros's responses to questions about life influences, philanthropy, international politics, and philosophy. The book should be a hit with those wanting an in-depth look into the mind of the master investor, but the interview format does not allow for the broadest coverage. Reporter and biographer Slater's Soros is better suited for those approaching the subject for the first time. Slater's presentation is balanced and well organized, and he succeeds at providing clear, concise summaries of Soros's sometimes confusing ideas and theories. Both titles would make good additions to business collections.?Mark McCullough, Heterick Lib., Ohio Northern Univ., Ada
