Calificación de Goodreads
En 1975, Ray Dalio fundó Bridgewater Associates desde su pequeño apartamento de Nueva York. Cuarenta años después, Bridgewater es la quinta compañía privada más importante de Estados Unidos (Fortune) y ha conseguido ganar más dinero para sus inversores que cualquier otro hedge fund en la historia (Bloomberg). A lo largo de su trayectoria, Dalio ha descubierto un conjunto de principios únicos que considera la base de su éxito y que ahora comparte con todos nosotros. En este libro repasa su trayectoria, haciendo mayor hincapié en sus errores que en sus aciertos, pues destaca que estos errores han sido su principal fuente de aprendizaje. Un conocimiento que surge de la experiencia y que le permitió, tras acabar arruinado en 1982, ser uno de los únicos gestores capaces de capear con éxito la crisis financiera de 2008. Ray Dalio, que ha sido apodado “el Steve Jobs de la inversión”, te invita a descubrir estos principios y a ponerlos en práctica para conseguir todo lo que te propongas.
