An American Hedge Fund: How I Made $2 Million as a Stock Operator & Created a Hedge Fund

www.amazon.com/exec/..
Category: Books
$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 everything. Timothy turned $12,000 of Bar Mitzvah gift money into $1.65 million trading thousands of stocks from 1999-2002, managed the #1 Short Bias Hedge Fund from 2003-2006, 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.

Great Read
Again, another book without much in substance but a book about how to trade properly by cutting losers and holding winners. Just wonder how Timothy did in 2008? Would love to know the rest of the story.

A very entertaining read about the day trading world
I think Tim is a super entertaining guy to read. The insight is mindblowing, although you won´t see any real trading education in the book, other than cut your losses early.

Entertainingly delightful
An entertaining read, more focused on autobiographical experience rather than trading tactics, but the book aims to teach from experience. Great and funny.

Great incite into the ups and downs of trading
This was the first stock market related book I read. Read Rich Dad Poor Dad (Highly recommend) and that renewed my interest in the stock market. Won a stock market contest in high school and always thought it'd be something I could be good at but didn't know where to start and let that fade away. Twelve years later came across a guy named Timothy Sykes. As a firm believer of anything that sounds too good to be true usually is and after having quite a bad/useless experience with Investools I was skeptical. I figured the first place I'd start before I did anything was to read his book.

Not many books do I finish in a week, let alone a couple days, but this was one of those. A surely entertaining read. Not so much educational but definitely helped me get a better understanding of this Tim Sykes guy. The time he took his whole dorm out to dinner after a very successful trade and setting up a scholarship helped to show he wasn't just another scam artist looking to take peoples money. Another example is his new How To Make Millions DVD which ALL the profits go to charity. With as much success as he's had he's obviously going to have haters but before you jump on that bandwagon put down the hateraide and pick up this book (after I bought it realized he has it posted for free online) and see that Tim is not just another scam artist.

A great book for anyone interested in the stock market.
I thought it was a great book. I loved the story, it encouraged me to take risk but learn from the people that have made mistakes before me. If you are interested in the stock market I suggest you read this book.

Great read
I recently read this book and really enjoyed it. The book keeps you on the edge of your seat as you try to figure out what Tim did next. It was really great to get a better idea of where Tim came from and to learn a bit more about hedge funds.

Good entry-level into the experience
This is the first book that I read about someone putting out their story "from rags to riches" so to say. The book really provides a good insight on importance of disciplined trading and overall being more aware of what you're doing. The storytelling was pretty entertaining too, a unique example of how Tim Sykes started the road to be the man he is now.
