Principles: Life and Work

Investor Ray Dalio likes to talk about principles. He’s been writing his down for decades, and using them to build one of the most successful hedge funds of all time. The first part of this book is basically an autobiography. Ray tells his story of growing up and founding Bridgewater Associates. He then discusses all of his life and work principles. There’s a lot of wisdom here, but to be frank the format doesn’t match with my style. I prefer stories rather than platitudes. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t value in this book – because there’s plenty to learn from him! (View on Amazon)
