The book is a great resource for grant writers. I use it to teach a Grant Writing course.
Grant Writing For Dummies
For Dummies, 2009
Excellent Guide for a Beginning Grant Writer
This book provides an excellent, comprehensive overview of what you need to know to write grants. While there is a danger of information overload for a beginner, most books for new grant writers don't provide enough information, and that is definitely not the case for this book. The many checklists, tips, warnings, and practical examples will be particularly helpful as you get started with grant ...
The Greatest Trade Ever: The Behind-the-Scenes Story of How John Paulson Defied Wall Street and Made ...
I read this book and Lewis' "The Big Short" back to back since they both were given very good reviews. I really enjoyed both books, but liked this one slightly more. The aspect of the book I enjoyed the most was how Zuckerman was able to relate the range of emotions the buyers of "insurance" on subprime loans went through as the housing market tanked. It was by no means all celebration. There was ...
More Money Than God: Hedge Funds and the Making of a New Elite
Penguin Press HC, The
Wonderful trading insight
If you have read books like "stock Market wizard" and still feel that you don't have good idea how those people made so much money, this book is for you. Initially, I thought this book was just another hedge fund book without much substance. However, the author beautifully explains the trading methodologies of these star traders(and also their misses)- I was blown away. The author's insight into ...
The Ultimate Scholarship Book 2011: Billions of Dollars in Scholarships, Grants and Prizes
Wonderful scholarship resource
I decided to buy this book because my college savings is running short since I decided to attend college full time and work part time. I read a lot of good reviews about Kelly Tanabe scholarship resource books and decided that this would be the best most recent book to choose. The format is laid out very clearly and there is enough information in the book to well jump start your adventure to ...
Diary of a Very Bad Year: Confessions of an Anonymous Hedge Fund Manager
Anonymous Hedge Fund Manager
Great for a quick read
I don't follow the news very much, just episodes of Daily Show that let me know the general state of the world. So I knew next to nothing about the causes and implications of the financial meltdown or the rationale of the bailout. I picked this book up because I liked the interview format and thought I could learn a little. It turned out to be an amazing read: it was fairly easy to understand, ...
The Little Book of Common Sense Investing: The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns
My son said: "Thanks"
Not much to say, except to report verbatim the email I received from my 24-year old son, to whom I had recently sent this book: "Thanks. That Bogle book is the best book I've ever read". Nuff said?

For Dummies, 2008
From Dummy to Smarty
After reading this book, I finally have the knowledge and confidence to invest. I'm 32 years old and I'm so glad I've taken the time to educated myself, now having 27 years to consider in making the most of my money and investments.
Trust Fund Babies
Right on target!
I flipped through this fast paced novel in almost one day! It was so engrossing that I couldn't put it down and just kept on reading, rescheduling appointments and lunch plans around this book! Jean Stone's description of life on the two islands of the Atkinson's (Manhattan AND Martha's Vineyard) is impeccable. The carefully depicted Nikki and Mary Beth and the subtley mysterious Gabrielle ...
No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller
Harry's book is well worth the read. I am an industry participant who had no interest in reading this account. My father (a customer) sent me the book and had excellent questions about our firm because of the knowledge he gained from reading this book.

The Invisible Hands: Hedge Funds Off the Record - Rethinking Real Money
Cash is King! Long live liquidity!
David Swensen's seminal "Pioneering Portfolio Management" book has been, and will probably continue to be, one of the more widely read and followed books on institutional portfolio construction. Yet here, in "The Invisible Hands", it sounds like Steve Drobny is essentially saying that the endowment model that Swensen has espoused for decades is no longer valid in today's world. Endowments (and ...
Confidence Game: How a Hedge Fund Manager Called Wall Street's Bluff
Christine S. Richard
Worth the money
Excellent book. Provides a good picture of the situation and a great example of resolute attitude. Not easy to fight the establishment, even if one is right.
The Ivy Portfolio: How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets
The Ivy Portfolio: How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets
This is a great book with a strategy on the entrance and exit of markets, for those who have no strategy at all. It is written in a language that most all of us, from beginners to seasoned veterans, can easily understand. If you are a buy-and-holder, you probably will not like the book as much, although it might open up a new way of looking at the different philosophies of investment. In my ...
The Ask: A Novel
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Sweet and Sour
Hilariously funny, bitterly precise, each word a perfectly sharpened dagger. "The Ask" manages to be all at once resigned, despairing, and hopeful; about grim hatred and bottomless love. It manages to present a "compleat sampler" of 21st-century American types: in no particular order, the disfigured Iraq veteran; the septuagenarian mother seeking lesbian pleasure after her two-timing husband has ...
Fooling Some of the People All of the Time: A Long Short Story
Fantastic, Eye Opening Read!
"Fooling Some of the People All of the Time" is an eye-opening book that tells the story of hedge fund manager David Einhorn, Greenlight Capital, high profile short position in Allied Capital and the drama that resulted from it. The book is highly technical and not intended for an audience unfamiliar with financial statement analysis and accounting standards. There are a few reviews that state ...
How to Go to College Almost for Free
I gave this book to my twin daughters so they could to the college they wanted instead of just afford. It was great information and landed them in the private college they wanted for a community college price...recommend reading.

Remember, don't give up your history........
It could all change. How you live, how much you provide for yourself. Whether or not you can build your own shelter, feed and clothe your family, and tend to simple health remedies. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. It is already turning. Read about those who spoked it. Relearn their lessons and your own historical heritage. Maybe 2012 is just a Mayan myth. Maybe it's not. Take a look at ...
The Global Fund for Children
Wonderful and important book!
I love this book - it's been one of my daughter's favorites since we bought it, and it still is. (She was 3 months when we got it and is 12 months now.) She loves looking at the bright pictures of babies' faces. And as a parent, I am thrilled to introduce this message to her at such a young age. It does a better job than any other children's book I've seen of displaying all the wonderful ...
