Giveaway: An American Hedge Fund

Last Friday I reviewed Timothy Sykes’ book “An American Hedge Fund.” It is a story of how a young man got interested in stocks and investing at a young age and turned his bar mitzvah money into a cool million +. After years of success in the market he was decided to start his own hedge fund. This proved to be more difficult than he had anticipated. The book covers the underbelly of the hedge fund industry in an honest and open way.
