An American Hedge Fund is the first realistic look at the world of stock trading and hedge funds. It chronicles how Timothy Sykes turned $12,000 of Bar Mitzvah gift money into $1.65 million trading thousands of stocks from 1999-2002. It tells how he 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.
"Sykes proves that in addition to his extraordinary gift as an entrepreneur he is also a very fine writer, able to communicate his dream and his reality with a forceful, compelling style that will find an audience among those who wish to understand the seeming conundrum of the Stock Market."

"Tim lays it on the line. The pain, the hunger, the glory, the brutality of trading in the trenches. Read this before you try to turn $12,000 into $2,000,000."
