Product description

Review

"What makes Dalio compelling is not just his track record but the way he goes about making money, and the rigorous analysis he applies to understanding markets, organizations, the economy, and life." -Fortune "Among a handful of philosopher-investors known not only for moneymaking prowess but also for their distinctive take on life." -The Wall Street Journal "Ray brings unique analytic insights about how to think about complex issues. His Principles is a must read. It's a gift to all of us." -Steve Schwarzman "Principles had a profound positive impact on my leadership style-through living more honestly." -Reed Hastings "It's the book I wish I had as a young entrepreneur, stressing over not knowing what I didn't know. Principles offers a bible to the greatest skill an entrepreneur can have, the ability to Learn How to Learn in any situation. Read it." -Mark Cuban "I highly, highly recommend this book. It has already changed how I think about making decisions in my life and in my business." -Tim Ferriss "The billionaire investor has created the strongest culture I've ever seen in an organization-one that prizes radical transparency over politics and meritocracy over democracy. In his long-awaited book, he describes the systems that he has designed to shape meaningful work, meaningful relationships, and the world's most successful hedge fund." -Adam Grant "I was surprisingly moved by it. I found it to be remarkably engaging. It made me think about life and how we all deal with each other in pretty profound ways. And Mr. Dalio's own story about how he came to these principles is fascinating." -Andrew Ross Sorkin "It's important and instructive to share what you've learned in life with others, and Ray does this in an interesting and provocative way in this compelling work." -Jamie Dimon "Ray Dalio's market acumen is legendary, but it was creating and living by a set of principles that allowed him to reach the top. Everyone with goals and dreams can learn from Ray's approach." -Michael Bloomberg "I found it to be truly extraordinary. Every page is full of so many principles of distinction and insights-and I love how Ray incorporates his history and his life in such an elegant way." -Tony Robbins "I absolutely loved this book. It's beautifully written and filled with such wisdom." -Arianna Huffington "Ray Dalio has provided me with invaluable guidance and insights that are now available to you in Principles." -Bill Gates "If there was an 'it' book for businesses or careers in 2017, it was Ray Dalio's Principles. The book, weighing in at nearly 600 pages, begins with the author's own story, including the rise of Bridgewater Associates, Dalio's highly successful investment firm. Part memoir, part strategic plan, Dalio uses his own history to provide suggestions on attaining success while always stressing the power of individuality and personal goals. This isn't just a book for the power elite. Dalio's highly detailed game plan focuses on what he calls 'radical' truths and transparencies, and are applicable to the careers of powerful CEOs, ladder-climbing executives, longtime grunts, and fresh-faced rookies." -Chicago Tribune Winner of the Axiom Business Book Award for 2018 "Mr. Dalio has long been an object of fascination. . . . His new book is more significant than the original list of principles: It is part memoir, part how-to guide. It is a deeply personal story, with Mr. Dalio wading into how he started his firm in 1975, internal conflicts inside the company, and strife early on in his career. The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving. . . . Underneath what may seem like a clinical, emotionless approach is something different and far more poignant: Mr. Dalio is preaching for individuals to have a sense of humility and introspection, an ability to open themselves to appreciate pointed criticism and use it to improve." -The New York Times
