In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and has grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater's exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as "an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency". It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio - who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood - that he believes are the reason behind his success.
In Principles, Dalio shares what he's learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book's hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of "radical truth" and "radical transparency", include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating "baseball cards" for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they're seeking to achieve.
Here, from a man who has been called both "the Steve Jobs of investing" and "the philosopher king of the financial universe" (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you'll find in the conventional business press.

Zur kritischen Reflektion
Hat mir in einer schwierigen persönlichen Phase geholfen meine Entscheidungen zu hinterfragen und mich inspiriert mich eine Weile intensiv mit meinen Zielen, Wünschen, Stärken und natürlich auch Schwächen auseinander zu setzen.
Ray Dalio liest selber und ruft immer wieder dazu auf die Inhalte des Buches nicht ungefiltert zu kopieren, sondern seine eigenen Lösungen zu erarbeiten. Hierzu fühlt man sich durch die Strukturierung des Buches hervorragend motiviert. Denn die ist gerade präzise genug um zu wissen, wo man anfangen kann und vage genug, um sich sein eigenes Brot zu backen.
Auch wenn der Mann mir nach kurzer Recherche alles andere als sympatisch ist und vielleicht nicht ganz so sensibel wie er im Buch herüberkommt bin ich sehr dankbar für sein Buch, in das er offensichtlich viel Hingabe und Sorgfalt hat einfließen lassen.

Unpassed knowledge is wasted
Picture having the opportunity to sit back, with a bourbon in hand, and be given a lifetime of knowledge on economics, finance, business management and morality from the wisest person you could hope to know. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with all his conclusions, though it's hard to find many faults, you have to respect that they were drawn from trial and error, through the sharpest of lenses, time.
