I'm no fan of Malcolm Gladwell, but this article from 2010 is quite good:

http://www.gladwell.com/pdf/surething.pdf

 

Zuckerman profiles John Paulson

alongside three others who made the

same subprime bet—Greg Lippmann, a

trader at Deutsche Bank; Jeffrey Greene,

a real-estate mogul in Los Angeles; and

Michael Burry

All were supremely confident of

their decision. All had done their homework.

All had swooped down, like perfect

predators, on a marketplace anomaly.

But these were not men temperamentally

suited to risk-taking. They worked so

hard to find the sure thing because anything

short of that gave them ulcers.
