George Soros is a fascinating personality. As one of the greatest investors in history, he is worth studying for his investment ideas alone.

Robert Slater intelligently presents the story of this complicated, controversial and quick-witted billionaire. His account includes details about Soros’s investment strategies and achievements, as well as his vast philanthropic projects. getAbstract considers this an intriguing biography of one of the century’s most interesting investors and social philosophers – a remarkably complex self-made man.
