Throughout the violent financial disruptions of the past several years, three men havestood out as beacons of judgment and wisdom: Warren Buffett, George Soros, and PaulVolcker.
 Library Journal 
 praises, “Morris’s succinct but insightful biographies and his
 
 provocative criticisms make this an informative and recommended choice.” Though their experiences and styles vary—Buffett is the canny stock market investor; Soros is thereader of shifting global tides in trade and currencies; and Volcker is the regulator andgovernor, sheriff and clean-up crew—they have very much in common. With the benefitof his own deep understanding of markets and finance, Morris brilliantly analyzes therecords of these men, distilling their wisdom and experience—and argues for theimportance of consistent values in navigating the treacherous terrain of today’sglobalized world.
