Hite, Larry, author.

"The empowering story of Larry Hite's unlikely rise to the top of the hedge fund world-with critical insights and lessons you can take to the bank In The Rule, legendary trader and hedge fund pioneer Larry Hite recounts his working-class upbringing in Brooklyn as a dyslexic, partially blind kid who was anything but a model student-and how he went on to found and run Mint Investment Management Company, one of the most profitable and largest quantitative hedge funds in the world. Hite's wild success is based on his deep understanding that markets are flawed-just like people. Through his early-life struggles and failures, Hite came to know himself well-his fears, his frustrations, his self-doubt, and his tolerance for all of the above. This motivational book reveals that by accepting the facts of his life and of himself, he was able to accept markets as they are. And that was the key to his success. In these pages, you'll walk of the footsteps of an investing legend, who imparts smart, practical trading lessons throughout the journey. Making a successful living in trading isn't about beating the markets. It's about meeting markets where they are, embracing the fact of risk, knowing yourself, and playing it strictly by the numbers. The Rule shows that investing decisions are not only bets or gambles, but investments in time, energy, and attention. By focusing on realistic returns on your investments-versus what you expect or hope to get-you immediately improve your probability for success"-- Provided by publisher.

Homewreckers : how a gang of Wall Street kingpins, hedge fund magnates, crooked banks, and vulture capitalists suckered millions out of their homes and demolished the American dream

October 28, 2019
Glantz, Aaron, author.
New York, NY : Custom House, [2019]
xxx, 398 pages, 16 pages of unnumbered plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
The American dream -- The homewreckers cast of characters -- FINANCIAL FREEDOM: The salesman; A squandered opportunity; A run on the bank; Life on Park Avenue; The vultures circle -- FORECLOSURE KINGS: A mortgage discovered; Foreclosure machine -- THE GREATEST THING I'VE EVER DONE: ColFin AI-CA5 LLC; Polo ponies and wine; For infinity; Son of a linen store owner; Loading the boat; Life on a lease -- THE NEW REDLINING: A bungalow in Los Angeles -- THE BIG FLIP: Time to make a deal; The community fights back; The new debt bundles; Too big to fail -- ENTER THE DONALD: An early vulture; Trump University -- PRESIDENT TRUMP: Triumph of the homewreckers -- Epilogue: A path to shared prosperity.
Two years before the housing market collapsed in 2008, Donald Trump looked forward to a crash: "I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy," he said. But our future president wasn't alone. While millions of Americans suffered financial loss, tycoons pounced to heartlessly seize thousands of homes--their profiteering made even easier because, as prize-winning investigative reporter Aaron Glantz reveals in Homewreckers, they often used taxpayer money--and the Obama administration's promise to cover their losses. In Homewreckers, Glantz recounts the transformation of straightforward lending into a morass of slivered and combined mortgage "products" that could be bought and sold, accompanied by a shift in priorities and a loosening of regulations and laws that made it good business to lend money to those who wouldn't be able to repay. Among the men who laughed their way to the bank: Trump cabinet members Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross, Trump pal and confidant Tom Barrack, and billionaire Republican cash cow Steve Schwarzman. Homewreckers also brilliantly weaves together the stories of those most ravaged by the housing crisis. The result is an eye-opening expose of the greed that decimated millions and enriched a gluttonous few.

Non-consensus investing : achieving low risks and high returns

October 7, 2019
Bhansali, Rupal J., author.
New York : Columbia University Press, [2019]
ix, 268 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
"The book aims to share investment principles that have enabled the author, a successful money manager, to deliver superior risk adjusted returns throughout her 25 year career - spanning markets both bull and bear, domestic and international, developed and emerging and across market cap ranges. Active Investing has developed an inferior track record and poor reputation, not because it is not possible to beat the market but because a whole generation of investment professionals have failed to understand what it takes to succeed in the asymmetric sport of investing - where it is not enough to be correct, one also has to be non-consensus. The author calls her approach Non-Consensus Investing (NCI), distinguished from standard value investing by its emphasis on on what you get - the future risk, returns and growth of the business, rather than on what you pay. In other words, following the NCI approach, an investor is first a business analyst, second a financial analyst, and lastly a securities analyst. While traditional value investing is increasingly outsourced to computers because of its focus on strictly quantitative analysis, NCI relies on real-world heuristic frameworks. Bhansali outlines ten of the principles that she has followed throughout her successful career, one per chapter, with examples to show both the merits and pitfalls of her approach"-- Provided by publisher.

Lifeonaire : an uncommon approach to wealth, success and prosperity

August 15, 2019
Cook, Steve (Founder of Lifeonaire), author.
284 pages ; 23 cm
Will becoming a millionaire really set you free? How about the American Dream? If we, as a nation, declare freedom to be our number one priority, then why do so many of us, at a gut-level, feel less freedom than ever? Americans are working harder than ever to obtain financial success and material possessions based on the delusion that more will lead to a better life. The typical American is trading away the vast majority of their life in hopes that, someday, they will have enough to experience 'the good life'. Meanwhile, this tradeoff is the very thing that is robbing them of their freedom and the ability to enjoy an abundant life... right now. So, where do we find freedom? What should we pursue? In this book, Steve Cook answers these questions by challenging us to consider what it is that we really desire out of life. Through this fictional story, he shares how Americans blindly pursue financial wealth--thinking that money will reward them with what they want--and helping us to discover that our heart's desire is to become more than just a millionaire...what we really desire is to become a lifeonaire.

Aftermath : seven secrets of wealth preservation in the coming chaos

Scattergoods -- Putting out fire with gasoline -- Find the cost of freedom -- The alpha trap -- Free money -- The Mar-a-Lago accord -- Godzilla -- Aftermath.
"The evidence of the past ten years proves that the most devastating financial crisis since the Great Depression is right around the corner. The global elites are ready to protect their wealth. Are you? Since President Donald Trump enacted a series of tax cuts, the American economy appears to be on a solid growth path and fully recovered from 2008's devastating recession. But, as any student of financial history knows, the dizzying heights of the stock market can't continue indefinitely--and they won't. Investor optimism around the Trump administration has led to artificially inflated asset prices, ruinously low interest rates, the increased popularity of index funds, and the infiltration of behavioral economics into our financial lives. Evidence of systemic risk--market volatility, ballooning U.S. and global debt, and political instability--is everywhere for those who are paying attention. In [this book], bestselling financial expert James Rickards sketches the harrowing economic crisis that's right around the corner and identifies the asset classes that are most--and least--exposed. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of capital markets and unconventional insights, Rickards shows: why high-valuation, high-growth tech and media stocks like Facebook, Netflix, and Amazon are best avoided; why smart investors are steering clear of digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum; how passively managed index funds are thwarting the corrective forces of the market--and creating opportunity for active investors; why cash will still be king when another financial panic inevitably drives asset values down by 50 percent or more; how the behavioral economists who advise 401(k) plans manipulate investors into overexposure in equity markets. In the same take-no-prisoners style that won him wide acclaim for books like Currency Wars, Rickards calls out the key players and capital flows underpinning the global economy."--Dust jacket.

Lynam, Doug, 1973- author.
Nashville, Tennessee : W Publishing Group, an imprint of Thomas Nelson, [2019]
xv, 288 pages ; 22 cm
"Build a better financial future for yourself and the world. Former monk turned financial advisor, Doug Lynam, shares the rules of money management that will change your approach to earning, saving, and investing. From Monk to Money Manager is an entertaining and self-deprecating journey through Lynam’s relationship with the almighty dollar—his childhood in a rich family, the long-haired hippie days running away from materialism, time in the Marine Corps looking for selfless service, and his twenty years in the monastery under a vow of poverty that led to his current profession as a financial advisor. In this unique look at wealth from a spiritual perspective, Lynam shares his belief that God doesn't expect us to live in poverty. The truth is, we need financial peace so we can help others. When money becomes a part of our spiritual practice, used in love and service, it can bring us closer to our highest spiritual ideals. With humor and humility, Lynam uses stories told through the lens of his own money mistakes, and those of counseling clients, to understand how our attitudes about money hold us back. He also provides clear, step-by-step guidance on how to grow a little bit wealthy. His insights include how to build a compassionate relationship to our finances; some of the good, bad, and ugly truths about money; and the tricks to unlocking financial freedom."

Ken Honda-Japan's #1 bestselling personal development guru-knows that getting rich quick is no way to achieve happiness. Too often, money is a source of fear, stress, and anger, often breaking apart relationships and even ruining lives. We like to think money is just a number or a piece of paper, but it is so much more than that. Money has the ability to smile, it changes when it is given with a certain feeling, and the energy with which it imbues us impacts not only ourselves, but others as well. Although Ken Honda is often called a "money guru," his real job over the past decade has been to help others discover the tools they already possess to heal their own lives and relationships with money. Now, in practical and accessible language, the "Zen millionaire" explains how to achieve peace of mind when it comes to money. Learn how to treat money as a welcome guest, allowing it to come and go with respect and without resentment; understand and improve your money EQ; unpack the myth of scarcity; and embrace the process of giving money, not just receiving it. This book isn't to fix you, because as Ken Honda says, you're already okay!
