"Lois Peltz′s profiles of these outstanding money managers are interesting, insightful, and comprehensive. For anyone who is a serious investor in hedge funds, this book is invaluable."–Richard Elden, Chairman, Grosvenor Capital Management, LP
"Having access to the insights and analytical skills of Lois Peltz is like gaining entry into a great hedge fund after it has closed to new investors! Far too little has been written about hedge funds, and all too often private investors are fooled by the hype or mystified by the wildly disparate data on performance and categories. Lois has a journalist′s insatiable curiosity and a financial professional′s depth of knowledge. That combination makes for a fascinating read."–Charlotte B. Beyer, founder and CEO, Institute for Private Investors
"Well researched and illuminating. A must–read for serious institutional and high net worth investors. Perceptive insights into the minds and strategies of a gifted baker′s dozen of superior hedge fund managers."–Lawrence Simon, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ivy Asset Management Corp.
"Lois Peltz offers fascinating insight into the hedge fund world and some of its key figures. The New Investment Superstars gives a fair and accurate description of some of the key events and individuals of recent years. This book should provide investors with enough insight to stop them from ′having to sleep with the lights on at night′ worrying about some of these almost mythical figures in the business."–David Smith, Chief Investment Director, Global Asset Management
