Below is my review of The Greatest Trade Ever...
As with all biographies about successful traders, this book is very inspiring. It details the story of John Paulson's trade and the return on his speculative activities. From the book we read 'Paulson's winnings were so enormous they seemed unreal, even cartoonish. Paulson's personal cut was nearly $4 billion, or more than $10 million a day. That was more than the earnings of J, K. Rowling, Oprah Winfrey, and Tiger Woods put together. His trades made him one of the richest people in the world, wealthier than Steven Spielberg, Mark Zuckerberg and David Rockefeller Sr'.
It's well-written and entertaining
The book is very well-written and is an easy read. The author has created an entertaining and interesting read. There is very little financial terminology, I feel that even someone with very little knowledge about the trading industry would understand the book.
It provides opportunity to learn
Very little information is given about price, price charts and technical analysis but there is so much to learn from The Greatest Trade Ever. Insights into financial institutions, financial derivatives and the operations of those that work in the financial market industry are shared. The book provides a professional look into the hedge fund industry.
I highly recommend The Greatest Trade Ever. It has earned a well deserved place on my Top 10 Trading Books list.
