5.0 out of 5 stars The best book ever by George Soros
The book covers a wide range of global currency crises and most importantly it gives a quite excellent view on speculation against the British pound in 1992.In addition, George Soros still dedicates enough comments about his theory on reflexivity and fallibility, and the preservation of the open society idea is referred to all of his books. I would highly recommend it...

3.0 out of 5 stars 1st section is very good, 16 Nov. 2001
The book is split into 4 sections, the first of which is incredible inspiring. It is not factual but gives an insight into the the methodology adopted in the Quantum fund.
The second section, average, is about being a philanthropist and would be nice to read if I was from Eatern Europe.
Third/Forth sections read like a university thesis. Poorly written (not written by Soros) and not a concise impression of his thoughts on the open society. If Soros really wants to put his point across he really needs to write a much longer book, with much more detail, unless read by people well versed in philosophy, politics, socio-economics, finance and a bit of quantum physics for fun!

The book covers a wide range of global currency crises and most importantly it gives a quite excellent view on speculation against the British pound in 1992.In addition, George Soros still dedicates enough comments about his theory on reflexivity and fallibility, and the preservation of the open society idea is referred to all of his books. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in both speculation and information deficiencies.
