"Successfully translates sophisticated academic thinking into simple, intuitive principles that can be used by both individual and institutional investors. These principles are all the more valuable as Stanyer applies them to the full range of asset classes and investment strategies available today." -John Campbell, Morton L. and Carole S. Olshan Professor of Economics, Harvard University

"Over the years I've had the privilege of reviewing many investment books, but this is unquestionably one of the best. Every financial planner, wealth manager, broker, investment adviser and serious individual investor owes it to themselves to carefully read this extraordinary book." -Harold Evensky, President, Evensky & Katz LLC

"Peter Stanyer stands out as an extraordinarily clear thinker and he carries that clarity through to his writing in this book on, for example, hedge funds. In addition he is tremendously good at explaining what works best in establishing and adapting an investment strategy. This is a book every Chief Investment Officer should read." -Roger Urwin, Global Head of Investment Content, Towers Watson
