Description

Ray Dalio, one of the world's most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he's developed, refined, and used over the past 40 years to create unique results in both life and business - and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book, could not stop listening

I started listening and had a hard time to stop, finished in only two sessions. I found many of the principles very interesting and several I already use in my daily life.

I believe that it is a must read for new supervisors or those who are in management positions. Some of the teachings I believe would benefit many of the organizations I have been a part of in the past.

Will definitely give it another listen and know that I will pull something new out every listen. I will most likely listen to the audiobook a couple of times a year.

There’s no link to the book material in my library

Does not actually include the material that they say they include. Maybe it’s just for me

Outstanding catalog of principles

The point is not if you agree with these principles, but rate to explain how the author came up with his principles, and you can develop your ones.

Personal

Two stars - meh
three stars - good
four stars - worth a second read
five stars - life-changing - my top 50 of all time

Worth a second read because the ideas at the core of the book seem contrary to what has been my life experience.

I'd love to spend a couple of days at Bridgewater or extensively interview some longtime employees to find out if it works as the author suggests.

My experience has been that 'Idea Meritocracies' and 'Radical honesty' work great for those at the top, who's positions cannot be threatened because they deem what is valued and right.

I've also always been told that attempting to fit market movements to algorithms cannot predict the really important swings. This is because we cannot properly summarize all of the market conditions that existed historically, nor can we know all of the factors that effect markets currently because our information is incomplete. I should be able to tell if his approach works by comparing Bridgewater's performance to that of its peers, but I have not yet done this.

The author does make a telling comment early in the book, regarding the computational nature of reality. He states that if we knew we had a perfect description of the current state of the universe, we'd be able to predict what would happen next. This is by no means an established fact. Chaos theory, quantum mechanics and and Heisenberg would probably disagree.

I cannot decide if the 'Baseball Card' approach to personnel makes sense. Baseball stats are more objective that job performance or personality types based on standardized tests.
I'd love to believe that keeping stats on everyone would help predict future performance, but as Sabermetrics showed, which stats one calculates and how they are weighted have significant impact on outcomes.

I'd love to believe that his basic assumptions are correct, but I'm really ambivalent. This book raised many more questions than it answered.

If I check the facts and they seem to hold water, I will make changes to my life and thus this would qualify as a five-star book.

I need to go through this book a few more times.

This is a great book to listen to and I found myself drifting off quite a lot thinking how to apply any given section to my life/work. I'll have to go through it a few more times for sure.

The Management/CEO’s Handbook

Having fewer reports (zero), than the author, this book - while very interesting, insightful and practical - comes across as directed towards folks way above my pay grade. CEOs and VPs in particular. Still, as a small cog in a very big wheel, I recommend it for both perspective on what good management looks like, and for straight-up honorable principles to live by.

Two-thirds full.

I am a fan of Ray Dalio, the legendary hedge-fund manager. This book has three sections: a bio of Ray, followed by his "life principles," followed then by his "work principles." I found his life story to be very interesting indeed. And his "life principles" were excellent, especially the notion of "radical transparency" and "radical openness" and honestly confronting ones problems. So far great. But I got really bogged down in the third section, his "work principles." This seemed more like a corporate human resources manual than anything one could use in life. Even if you were a CEO or department head of a several hundred person organization, his principles often seemed like cliches. So much depends on what people are charged to do, but he has very little of that. I wish he had spent more time on his investment philosophy. This is where is his genius lies. He is not Tony Robbins. But I did learn from this book to confront my own problems more honestly and directly.

Can't get through it

It is mostly stories about how great and smart he is. I can't finish it. In the beginning, he says you can skip his life and get to the principles. Maybe I should have done that.

The best management book I have ever read

How I wish I have read this book 20 years ago!!! The wealth of knowledge and practical, time-proven solutions to managing organizational problems in this book is phenomenal. Ray Dalio is freely giving out gold in experience and wisdom. I must be wired the same way as he is, as I agree with 100% information and conclusions presented in this book. I work in government sector and have observed first-hand how departmental politics, lack of transparency and integrity extinguishes innovation and productivity. I am seeing unfulfilled potential of the place where I work and my heart cries for it. Even though I have strong internal desire to reach the stated mission of our organization, in Ray’s narrative I have recognized my own managerial weaknesses and mistakes. For some, I have learned from my own errors and reached identical conclusions and solutions as Roy presented in this book. For others, I have not reflected enough to identify the root causes and Roy’s book has been absolutely enlightening in this regard. It is very hard to do the right thing and achieve comparable level of efficiency and productivity in the government as can be done in the private sector; however, based on Ray’s book I am inspired to try precisely that. I can’t wait for him to release the practical tools he has described in the book! Thank you Ray, although we never met, you will always be in my mind honored as great mentor!

Great book by someone worth listening to

This book is very zero in his way to describe how to run a business fairly, without stress, and profitably. It is very descriptive how to handle problems from top to bottom with a very methodical approach, while very inclusive and taking into account all ideas from the smartest people at your company without bias. I would recommend this book to all the employees of my company and believe it will improve decision-making process for everyone. Maybe one of the best books I’ve read.
