The Hedge Fund Mirage - SL-AdvisorsSimon regularly makes presentations on investing. Click here for more information. Although hedge fund managers have earned some great fortunes, investors as a group have done quite poorly, particularly in recent years. Plagued by high fees, complex legal structures, poor disclosure, and return chasing, investors confront surprisingly meager results. Simon Lack demonstrates, astonishingly, that the industry itself has repeated that dismal story of early promise, followed by an infusion of funds, followed by a numbing reversion to the mean. And Lack has the numbers to prove it.

Overall the book was an easy quick read and pretty interesting if you are currently a trader or looking at starting your own fund. I don't think it is of the same quality of Running Money but I did get latched on to it finding myself reading it during my lunch breaks and rides home from work. Enjoy this book review?

To correct my critics: 1. Trust Score 1. It is possible that others are posting fake reviews of Tim's book but I have never met with and never even heard of Tim Sykes before reading his book last month. He has been reported to the SEC for posting on message boards attacks against a company he made a short recommendation against on thestreet.
All current and former investors should contact Tim Sykes who has agreed to refund his investors losses. I like Tim Sykes passion but the descriptions of his trading details and history was long and, based on the returns a hypothetical investor might have earmed from in an equally weighted portfolio of hedge funds and taking no account of the impact of size on returns, boring Not so much educational but definitely helped me get a better understanding of this Tim Sykes guy? It was a poorly argued case.
