Book: “The Fund” about Ray Dalio by Rob Copeland

The Fund - by Rob Copeland
Once again I started a new book before finishing the last book (audiobook). This time it was on the recommendation of a business journalist that I enjoy (often quirky) and follow online.

The book is “The Fund” which so far seems to be a less than polite account of famed Wall Street legend Ray Dalio and how he build and ran his business. The author, Rob Copeland, exposes the “intricate workings of the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates.” He interviewed people on the inside and reveals the hiring practices, internal conflict and the uncomfortable work environment experienced by many of those who were part of the company. I was particularly attracted to the word “gripping” when it was used to describe the book.
