Innovative, inspiring, honest…
Tim’s business model is simple – brutal honesty. His book, An American Hedge Fund, is just that, brutally honest. The finance industry is filled with corruption, manipulation, and arrogance of the highest degree. Tim’s brutally honest story about his trading experiences (both good and bad), in an industry where the truth is as common as an honest politician, illustrates his character and supports his business model.
An American Hedge Fund gives its readers the opportunity to ride Tim’s stock-market-roller-coaster-ride where he takes $12,000 and turns into $2,000,000. That by itself is both inspiring and motivational, but the book adds another dimension which I found to be even more stimulating; Tim’s introspective journey. The psychology behind trading stocks is truly fascinating and first-hand experience can be truly humbling. The life lessons Tim learns from trading stocks, which he openly shares in his book, apply to all areas of life, which the reader will either identify with or learn from.
For someone who has never traded a stock in his life (me!), this book peaked my interest to learn the stock market. An American Hedge Fund will not teach you how to trade stocks or reveal secrets on how to become a millionaire. What An American Hedge Fund does give you is an honest story of how one person, Timothy Sykes, was able to defy the odds and achieve the American Dream.
I’ve read An American Hedge Fund twice and I highly recommend this book if you have any interest in the stock market or if you’re looking for an easy read that’s entertaining and honest. An American Hedge Fund brings a spiritual enlightenment to finance, which is really cool.
I`ve also ordered Tim’s DVD (Pennystocking) and frequent his blog at www.timothysykes.com. I would recommend both as well. Tim’s DVD is educational and his blog is honest. The short-selling strategy will only make a strong trader better and help a novice trader become successful in the markets.
