ove zombies recrea, de una manera ferozmente divertida, un mundo postapocalíptico de crueldades obscenas, donde el lector se verá enfrentado, no solo a los muertos vivientes, sino también a los seres más peligrosos de todos: nosotros mismos. En este mundo, lleno de violencia, destacan las historias entrelazadas de dos personajes muy distintos: Una, la de un joven traumatizado por la muerte de su familia –víctima de una horda hambrienta de cadáveres ambulantes– que se encuentra con la difícil tarea de mantener con vida a una hermosa chica gravemente herida, que podría –o no– estar infectada del virus que convierte a los humanos en muertos vivientes. La otra, es la historia de un hábil cazador de zombies cuyas técnicas de supervivencia traspasan los límites del pragmatismo para convertirse en prácticas asesinas. Este hombre dice que ama a los zombies y justifica su comportamiento homicida diciendo: “Con los zombies uno siempre sabe a qué atenerse… mientras que en la gente… simplemente no se puede confiar”. No vamos a arruinarles la sorpresa revelándoles el desenlace de estas sangrientas historias, pero la idea es que, al terminar de leer I love zombies, ustedes los amen también.

Mallaby not only presents the definitive history of hedge funds, starting with the first one (created by A.W. Jones in 1949), and continuing through the recent financial crisis, but he also makes the argument that hedge funds are the best alternative to the megabanks on Wall Street. Thats a pretty controversial claim. Certain funds (like Long-Term Capital Management) have completely imploded, and some hedge fund managers have been fined for fraud. And yet, after reading this book, Im sympathetic to Mallabys case. He argues that hedge funds:1) Include their managers own money in the fund (most of the time) 2) Havent taken taxpayer money in bailouts when they fail 3) Shine a light on fraudulent and incompetent companies through short-selling their stock4) Have an entrepreneurial, startup spiritIts a testament to the merit of Mallabys book that I now have some sympathy for financial traders. Up to this point, the books Ive read about Wall Street have all been scathing. This one takes an approach of measured praise.
