Praise

“A fascinating account of one of the great men of our times.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Masterly . . . [Kaufman] is a likable and intelligent narrator who writes with both insight and compassion.” –The Washington Post Book World

“A flinty-eyed exposition of a brilliant capitalist, devoted provocateur, and accidental humanitarian. You come away believing it is possible to be a really rich man and a really good man after all.” –The New York Times

“Kaufman excels at dissecting and explaining Soros’s psychological makeup.” –Salon

“Kaufman’s biography of Soros meets a higher truth standard than most . . . A compelling narrative notable for its candor and breadth.” –The Plain Dealer

“What’s memorable about Kaufman’s biography is its exploration of Soros as a man who satisfied his contemplative side not by making money but by finding visionary ways to spend it.” –Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“The enthralling story of an extraordinary individual. . . . Rewarding reading on several levels–as an adventure story, as food for serious philosophical speculation, and as a peek into the world of high financial wheeling and dealing.” –Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Surprisingly even-handed. . . . A thoughtful analysis on the complex intersection of wealth and compassion.”–Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Engaging. . . .To call Soros complex is an understatement. . . . Clearly written and thoroughly researched.” –San José Mercury News

“A fascinating book about an exceedingly complicated and competitive man.” –The Jewish Advocate
