Unlike other works I've read on institutional investing (which simply offer a laundry list of investment strategies without detailing the risks inherent in them or the challenges of implementing them), Carlson spends a lot of time on the "how" of institutional investing. This is not a titillating listing of sexy-sounding investment strategies. Instead, Carlson (much like Swensen) offers valuable wisdom in the tools required for successful institutional investing.
I'm not sure how much more I can say about the caliber of this book. Every institutional investors needs to read this.
The author does an outstanding job of describing what is really needed to achieve investment success for institutional investors. In my opinion, the lessons are applicable to individual investors as well.
