KIRKUS REVIEW

A portfolio of profiles from the pages of The Institutional Investor about the new self-starting swingers in the field of money management where prudence has given way to performance and where bonds are for chumps. You'll meet several young men like Dave Meid, on the hot line 24 hours a day and always ""in phase with the best performing stocks""; or Fred Carr who thinks of himself as an emerging-growth company -- which is what he deals in; or some of the older figures in the new trend (say of the '50's) like Howard Stein who promoted the Dreyfus Fund from 1 to 310 million in a decade; or the men behind the foundation, pension and bank funds who are more anonymous and traditional but still changing the look of things; or say the quieter, soothing Peter Bernstein who likes to deal in people as well as money. On the whole, quite an assortment of razzledazzling entrepreneurs with lively reflexes.
