Fooling Some of the People All of the Time is the gripping chronicle of the ongoing saga between author David Einhorn's hedg fund, Greenlight Capital, and Allied Capital, a leader in the private finance industry. Page by page, it delves deep inside Wall Street, showing why the6 billion hedge fund decided to short shares of Allied Capital and how Allied responded with a Washington, D.C.-style spin-job-attacking Einhorn and disseminating half-truths and outright lies.

David Einhorn is the President of Greenlight Capital. He is also a major contributor and board member of The Michael J. Fox Foundation. In 2006, Einhorn finished 18th in the World Series of Poker main event and donated his entire winnings of $659,730 to the foundation. Einhorn was born in 1968. He lives in Westchester County, NY, with his wife, two daughters and son. He graduated summa cum laude from Cornell University, where he earned a BA in Government from the College of Arts and Sciences in 1991.
