Praise for High–Flying Adventures in the Stock Market

"Most Americans know mutual funds only by their performance numbers. In High–Flying Adventures in the Stock Market, Molly Baker takes us inside the fund industry to give us a compelling and intimate look at the human drama of running a fund."–Douglas K. Sease, Editor, Wall Street Journal Books

"Baker uses the eye for detail she acquired as a reporter for the Wall Street Journal to explain the high–pressure world of the money manager in laymen′s terms. For those seeking a readable, inside account of the ′90s historic stock market boom, this is a book to add to the portfolio."–Dana Milbank, Staff Writer, The Washington Post

"A wonderful read–Baker takes you through a year in the life of a fund manager–it′s so well conceived and written that you′ll think you were there too. Individual investors who manage their own money should put this book in their portfolio. Informative, educational, and great fun."–Larry Waterhouse Jr., Chairman, TD Waterhouse Investor Services, Inc.

"Baker has provided an unusual perspective into the world of mutual fund management. She is a real reporter who is skilled in her understanding of what she describes and lively in her choice of episodes. The book is fun as well as informative."–Peter L. Bernstein, President, Peter L. Bernstein, Inc., Author of The Power of Gold: The History of an Obsession

"A fantastic voyage through the mutual fund universe. Every serious investor should read this book."–Andrew Metrick, Assistant Professor of Finance, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
