I found this book to be very informative, and offer alot of knowledge that you will need to be a successful trader. I look at the market at a different angle that will help me in my new career choice. One thing the author said that really changed my attitude, he said don't consentrate on the money, but instead work on perfecting your strategies, and the money will follow. Good Stuff! I will relisten over and over again! good for a refresher. Not for complete novices, the terms he uses will confuse you if your not familiar with the market.

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.

I am new to trading, and I advise every newbie to start with this book! I know the author may come off as being cocky and full of his self, but he made alot of mistakes that everyone can learn from! This book made my learning experiance easy.
