In Tao of Value, Mark Spitznagel discusses the three core principles, drawn from the Eastern philosopher, Laozi in the Tao-deching, that have made him a successful trader.  Anecdotes culled from his time in the pit of the CBOE, his years leading a secretive proprietary trading unit at Morgan Stanley, the partnership with Nassim Taleb at hedge fund Empirica, and the founding of Universa and the immense success he’s been privy to in the last few years.   The book will discuss his investment philosophy as well his investment strategy, and address the major issues facing the economy in the years to come, specifically, extreme risks, the dangers of federal monetary injections, and the global markets as a whole.Ghostwriter, Patricia Crissafulli is attached to this project to help Mark write the book.

Ron Paul was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 20, 1935. He received a B.S. degree in biology from Gettysburg College in 1957 and a M.D. degree from the Duke University School of Medicine in 1961. He served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and then the United States Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968. Afterward, he opened a private practice in obstetrics and gynecology in Texas. He served in the United States Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to the present. He has devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy. He is the founder of the advocacy group Campaign for Liberty and has been called the "intellectual grandfather" of the Tea Party movement. He has written several books including The Case for Gold, The Revolution: A Manifesto, End the Fed, and Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom.
