Publisher's Summary

About $2 trillion is invested in the hedge-fund industry, and yet, due to industry regulations, the general public knows little about them. This book will change that. Timothy Sykes turned $12,000 of Bar Mitzvah gift money into $1.65 million by trading thousands of stocks from 1999 to 2002. He managed the number-one Short Bias Hedge Fund from 2003 to 2006, starred in the television documentary Wall Street Warriors, and appeared regularly on CNBC - all before the age of 26. It's been a wild ride.
This Rocky-like story is the first realistic look at the world of stock trading and hedge funds. It will educate and inspire everyone.

Critic Reviews

"This is the first book I'd give to somebody if I were trying to interest them in the stock market." (Greg Feirman, Founder and CEO, Top Gun Financial Planning)"There's certainly a dash of Holden Caulfield to Sykes, but there's at least an equal part Larry Livingston, the trader in Edwin LeFevre's classic Reminiscences of a Stock Operator."

Ok but something is missing

This book is hugely entertaining. Timothy's story is interesting, honest and well told. The problem with this book is that it misses the authors purpose and goal. You will learn about a few trading techniques but the book is not detailed enough to help you really understand the concepts of these trading tactics and sadly you will not learn what exactly a Hedge Fund is. Recommended if you have a little background knowledge.

I loved the fact that Timothy Sykes has taken a huge step against the negativity which surrounds the trading world. If you invest your time wisely in your research then trading can be a fantastic source of income.

A well documented story with facts, his book has given me the lesson that no one could have given me.
