Performance Notes
"Runnette brings elegance to his measured reading of Morris’ summation of the contributions and viewpoints of three captains of finance - Runnette’s appropriate pauses in the text let important concepts sink in as he smoothly details market reflexivity. He is perhaps at his best when presenting Hungarian-born Soros’ quotes and financial diary excerpts in a charming European-tinged accent." Booklist
