There's no hiding our admiration for the great Ray Dalio here at TraderLife. The founder and co-chairman of the largest and best performing hedge fund in the world, Dalio's influence has since extended well beyond the walls of Bridgewater Associates and now permeates the world of trading, investing, finance and business.
Not only has he appeared on the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world as well as the Bloomberg Markets list of the 50 most influential people, but his famed innovative business acumen has seen his advice sought by some of the business world's other leading lights. When Bill Gates is ringing you for words of wisdom, you know you're on to something.
Some of this advice is renowned for being unconventional, but - given that he also features on Forbes’s list of the 100 wealthiest people in the world - there can be no doubting its efficacy.
Crucially, Dalio believes that his principles, and not him, are the reasons for the success he and Bridgewater have had, and that they can help most organisations and people get more of what they want out of life. And the good news for the rest of us? He's now looking to share those principles with everyone:
I’m at a stage in my life in which the most important thing I can do is to help others be successful rather than be more successful myself.
His new book, Principles, includes hundreds of practical lessons which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency.” They include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organisations to make decisions, approach challenges, build strong teams, and engage in thoughtful disagreement.
The result, from a man commonly called “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (CIO magazine), is an opportunity for readers to gain proven advice unlike anything they will find in the conventional business press.
The expanded and totally re-written book highlights Dalio’s life and work principles and also includes his personal account of his history and career—warts and all—making it one of the most authentic portraits a brilliant entrepreneurial mind at work.
Such has been the clamour for Dalio's book that not only is it an Amazon best-seller but many high street bookstores have already sold out. And so we're delighted to have got hold of 3 copies of Principles to give away to 3 lucky TraderLife readers.
