How We Got Here: A Silicon Valley and Wall Street Primer:




A SLIGHTLY IRREVERENT History of Technology And Markets:

BY : ANDY KESSLER:

THE BOOK DISCRIBES THE HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY FROM BEFORE STEAM ENGINE TO COMPUTERS AND ALSO HOW THE MARKETS INCLUDING INSURANCE, AND OTHER FINANCIL INSTRUMENTS, DEVELOPED ALONG WITH THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES.
THE BOOK CONTAINS MANY ANECDOTES AND IS IN A HUMOUROUS STYLE- IRREVERENT, HIGHLY READABLE.

A SAMPLE IS AS UNDER;

I found a hot company with the most interesting story. It went public
on July 4th at $25 per share. On its first day of trading, it jumped to $40, then
$50. A month later, on August 10th, it was trading at $280 and on August
11th, it peaked at $310. The next day it fell to $212 and by the 15th it was
down to $172, ending the year at $150.

Amazon.com? Internet Capital Group? Yahoo!? Guess again. The
year was 1791. The stock was the Bank of the United States, set up by
Alexander Hamilton in 1790 to help restructure the new government’s $80
million of debt from the Revolutionary War and General Washington’s bar
tab. And you just won’t believe it, but this hot IPO somehow ended up in the
hands of 30 members of Congress, the Secretary of War and wealthy

citizens. Some things never change. The Bank of the United States was
signed into law in February of 1791. To set the tone for enduring government
bureaucracy, it took five more months for the Bank to prepare for its initial

public offering.

Running Money: Hedge Fund Honchos, Monster Markets and My Hunt for the Big Score:

BY: ANDY KESSLER:



A brilliant investor, a born raconteur and an overall smart-ass, Andy Kessler pulls back the curtain on the world of hedge funds and shows how the guys who run big money think, talk and act.  Following on the success of Wall Street Meat, his self-published book on the lives of Wall Street stock analysts, Andy Kessler recounts his years as an extraordinarily successful hedge fund manager. To run a successful hedge fund you must have an investing edge -- that special insight that allows you to reap greater returns for your clients and yourself.  A quick study, Kessler gets an education in investing from some fascinating and quirky personalities. Eventually he works out his own insight into the world economy, a powerful lens that reveals to him hidden value in seemingly negative trends. Focussing on margin surplus, Kessler comes to see that current American economy, at the apex of the information revolution, is not so different from the British economy at the height of the industrial revolution. Drawing out the parallels he develops a powerful investing tool which he shares with readers. Contrarian and confident, Kessler made a fortune applying his ideas to his hedge fund. Which only proves that they may not be as crazy as they sound.

Eat People: And Other Unapologetic Rules for Game-Changing Entrepreneurs:

BY: ANDY KESSLER:






Something from Nothing

I’VE SEEN IT HAPPEN SO MANY TIMES.
Someone comes up with a great idea and changes the world.
The next big thing.
I met Michael Dell by phone in his dorm room where he was selling PCs and then met him in person well before Dell Inc. completely changed how personal computers were sold. By getting rid of an entire swath of middlemen, and lowering prices for all of us, he turned himself into a multibillionaire.
I met Steve Jobs as he was getting thrown out of Apple, and once more as he headed back in, when he expanded the company’s mission from designing computers to MP3 players and then smart phones and tablets that have made it easier for all of us to get information by voice or by Web wherever we might find ourselves. He got rich—and you and I got richer lives.

Wall Street Meat: My Narrow Escape from the Stock Market Grinder:
BY: ANDY KESSLER:






Wall Street is a funny business. All you have is your reputation. Taint it and someone else will fill your shoes. Longevity comes from maintaining that reputation. Ask Jack Grubman, the All-Star telecom analyst from Salomon Smith Barney; uber-banker Frank Quattrone at CS First Boston; Morgan Stanley's Mary "Queen of the Net" Meeker; or Merrill Lynch's Henry Blodget. Well, they probably won't tell you anything. But have I got some great stories for you. Successful hedge fund manager Andy Kessler looks back on his years as an analyst on Wall Street and offers this cautionary tale of the intoxicating forces loose in the world of finance that overwhelmed sober analysis.

"The End of Medicine"
NonFiction>Expose>Medicine
Published 04 JUL 2006, 368 pgs.


You get sick; you go to your doctor. Too bad. Because medicine isn't an industry, it's practically witchcraft. Despite the growth of big pharma, HMOs, and hospital chains, medicine remains the isolated work of individual doctors—and the system is going broke fast.

So why is Andy Kessler—the man who told you outrageous stories of Wall Street analysts gone bad in "Wall Street Meat" and tales from inside a hedge fund in "Running Money"—poking around medicine for the next big wave of technology?
It's because he smells change coming. Heart attacks, strokes, and cancer are a huge chunk of medical spending, yet there's surprisingly little effort to detect disease before it's life threatening. How lame is that—especially since the technology exists today to create computer-generated maps of your heart and colon?
Because it's too expensive—for now. But Silicon Valley has turned computing, telecom, finance, music, and media upside down by taking expensive new technologies and making them ridiculously cheap. So why not the $1.8 trillion health care business, where the easiest way to save money is to stop folks from getting sick in the first place?
Join Kessler's bizarre search for the next big breakthrough as he tries to keep from passing out while following cardiologists around, cracks jokes while reading mammograms, and watches twitching mice get injected with radioactive probes. Looking for a breakthrough, Kessler even selflessly pokes, scans, and prods himself.
CT scans of your heart will identify problems before you have a heart attack or stroke; a nanochip will search your blood for cancer cells--five years before they grow uncontrollably and kill you; and baby boomers can breathe a little easier because it's all starting to happen now.
Your doctor can't be certain what's going on inside your body, but technology will. Embedding the knowledge of doctors in silicon will bring a breakout technology to health care, and we will soon see an end of medicine as we know it.
