Hedge funds have gone from obscurity to the mainstream in a very short period of time. Their ascent in the marketplace may have been rapid, but make no mistake, these innovative investment vehicles are here to stay. Understanding the intricacies of hedge funds can put you in a better position to profit from them—and no one is more qualified to advise you on this subject than author Daniel Strachman.

Whether you're an investor looking to find the hedge fund that's right for you; a new hedge fund manager in need of tips on choosing an attorney or an administrator; or a veteran hedge fund manager eager to learn from—and avoid—the fiascos that have recently brought down some of the biggest names in the business, The Long and Short of Hedge Funds has what you need to succeed in this competitive field.

In his previous book, The Fundamentals of Hedge Fund Management, Strachman skillfully explained how this investment vehicle comes to life and operates as a business. Now, with The Long and Short of Hedge Funds, he takes some time to review those important concepts, but quickly moves on to address the essential issues of hedge fund evaluation and investing.

Strachman opens with an engaging discussion of the past, present, and possible future of the hedge fund industry, and then reveals how legendary hedge fund managers—from George Soros to Julian Robertson—have leveraged alpha-generating strategies to capture above average returns in their investment endeavors.
