Overview

#1 New York Times Bestseller "Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving." —The New York Times 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 forty 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 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.

About the Author

Рэй Далио родился и вырос в семье среднего достатка на Лонг-Айленде. В 26 лет основал инвестиционную компанию Bridgewater Associates с первым офисом в одной из комнат своей съемной квартиры. В течение следующих 42 лет он превратил Bridgewater Associates в пятую самую важную частную компанию в США (по версии Fortune). Ему удалось это благодаря созданию уникальной корпоративной культуры — внедрению меритократии идей, основанной на абсолютной честности, предельной прозрачности и принципе принятия решений с учетом компетентности. Рэй Далио убежден, что большинство людей и компаний могут воспользоваться его принципами для достижения собственных целей. Рэй Далио входит в список 100 самых влиятельных людей планеты (по версии Time) и 100 самых богатых людей в мире (по версии Forbes). Его уникальные принципы инвестирования изменили всю отрасль, за что журнал CIO назвал его "Стивом Джобсом инвестирования". (Этим принципам посвящена его следующая книга Economic and Investment Principles.) Рэй Далио считает, что добился успеха не потому что он особенный, а потому что его успех стал результатом применения принципов, которые он сформулировал, зачастую учась на своих ошибках. И эти принципы могут быть полезны большинству людей. Рэй Далио написал эту книгу в 68 лет, его главной целью было поделиться своими принципами в надежде, что другие сочтут их ценными.
