Book Description: Andy Kessler-s first book was a memoir that sought to answer the question: why had Wall Street analysts gone from being the market-s toughest, most unsentimental critics to becoming the biggest cheerleaders of every technology stock that came along. WALL STREET MEAT explained that analysts went from being paid by the buy side (people who bought stocks) to being paid by the sell side (the bankers who issued stocks.) So it was no wonder that the bankers were getting all the support. Partly because of this shift, Andy left Wall Street and opened a hedge fund in Silicon Valley. The story of his journey into world of investing is told in RUNNING MONEY and its companion title, HOW WE GOT HERE. In those books Andy relates his search for an investment edge and how he made a billion dollars in the stock market using the lessons he learned from the Industrial Revolution. THE END OF MEDICINE picks up where RUNNING MONEY left off-after a fashion. Out of the hedge fund business but still consumed by a passionate interest in technology, Andy begins to discover that medicine is the next frontier. Indeed, seeing the same patterns he first witnessed in the computer chip business 20 years ago, Andy describes how medicine is about produce startlingly efficient imaging and mapping techniques that will enable your doctors to prevent serious ailments like heart disease and cancer. More than that, he shows how medicine will be transformed by removing doctors from the equation and substituting technology. An exciting, thought-provoking and hilarious journey through the near future, THE END OF MEDICINE will delight readers, if that-s what you call reading the gory details of angioplasty.
