Praise

“[Zuckerman] tells a surprisingly captivating story. It turns out that a firm like Renaissance, filled with nerdy academics trying to solve the market’s secrets, is way more interesting than your typical greed-is-good hedge fund.” —Joe Nocera, New York Times

“So compelling, filled with so many fascinating characters and new information… The book reads more like a delicious page-turning novel than the usual finance tome. Destined to become an instant classic…my nominee for financial book of the year.” —Barry Ritholtz, Bloomberg

“Gregory Zuckerman lifts the lid on the most fascinating man in financial markets…superb reporting.” —Robin Wigglesworth, Financial Times
 
“Zuckerman brings the reader so close to the firm’s inner workings that you can almost catch a whiff of the billionaire’s Merit cigarette.” —Brandon Kochkodin, Bloomberg

“A gripping biography of investment game changer Jim Simons… readers looking to understand how the economy got where it is should eat this up.” —Publishers Weekly

“Worthwhile reading for budding plutocrats and numerate investors alike.” —Kirkus

“Zuckerman vividly tells the story of how Jim Simons and his team of scientists developed the most successful quantitative trading operation in history. . . . Immensely enjoyable.” —Edward O. Thorp, author of A Man for All Markets
 
“An extremely well-written and engaging book . . . a must read, and a fun one at that.” —Mohamed A. El-Erian, author of The Only Game in Town
 
“Leave it to the Wall Street Journal’s Greg Zuckerman to lay open the golden mysteries of quantitative investing. With this fine, humane, and eye-opening book, he’s well and truly broken the code.” —James Grant, Grant’s Interest Rate Observer

“The fascinating, page-turning tale of a complicated man and the movement he started, rendered in accessible prose and full of bravura storytelling.” —Gary Shteyngart, author of Lake Success
