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

$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
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.

A deeper look into the rise of the master of penny stocks
Great book that gives a deeper look into the rise of the master of penny stocks, Timothy Sykes.

He takes you on his journey of becoming a successful trader, making his first million, creating his hedge fund, losing his hedge fund, making his biggest wins and his biggest losses.

It was a great read to get to know him better as I became his challenge student. It is a must read if you are thinking about subscribing to one of his services. You must know the person you are going to do business with.

The book that got me in trading.
I could criticize this book being in the "technical analysis" bracket, since it has almost none of the technical analysis. It's not very educational either.

However, just because of this book and Tim, I got into stock market trading. I saw his name on some financial web site and I've read his story of making money being in college and becoming a millionaire. That was really interesting, so I decided to read this book. It blew my mind.

After this book, I became obsessed with the stock market and I still can't stop myself from reading more and more books, blogs; watching educational dvd's.

While this might be not the best biography and definitely not the best book about the stock market -

I am extremely thankful, that I got a chance to read it. It definitely changed my life. Thanks Tim.

P.S. To all my friends, that are interested in the stock market and learning things about it - this is the #1 book that I recommend them to read.
