A rare look inside the world of hedge funds from one of this country's top investors David Einhorn is one of the investment community's fastest rising stars. He founded his hedge fund, Greenlight Capital, at the age of 27, and now has5 billion under management. In "Fooling Some of the People All of the Time," Einhorn offers readers insights into the battles surrounding hedge funds. In 2002, Einhorn spoke publicly about Allied Capital-a leader in the private finance industry-presenting it as an excellent short opportunity. This book will describe the incredible events that followed Einhorn's speech and how Allied and the investment community attacked him to protect the company-and its stock price. Informative and intriguing, "Fooling Some of the People All of the Time" details how the current environment on Wall Street not only allows for such behavior, but how it protects the companies and attacks those who attempt to uncover them.
