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

“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
