I have been remiss in my duties…. I promised Timothy Sykes that I’d review his book, An American Hedge Fund on FRAUDfiles. And I still haven’t gotten around to it, thanks to an upcoming move of my office and a dozen other work-related things that have needed my urgent attention.
I promise to do a real review soon, but for now, this is it. I read the book a couple of months ago, and it was fantastic. Timothy basically took $12,000 from his bar mitzvah and turned it into over a milllion dollars in three years. He started his own hedge fund and had lots of ups and downs.
But people working within the hedge fund industry have many regulations about what they can say about the industry. So in order to really be able to talk freely about the industry, Timothy has closed his hedge fund and is now promoting his book.
My full review of the book soon…
