Everyone on Wall Street knows James J. Cramer. And James J. Cramer knows Wall Street better than anyone. Now the storied trader, hedge fund manager, pundit, journalist, radio personality, and co-founder of TheStreet.com and SmartMoney magazine traces his extraordinary career from its auspicious beginnings to the latest rumblings on Wall Street.
Confessions of a Street Addict takes readers from Cramer's Philadelphia childhood (spent poring over the financial pages while the other kids studied the sports pages) right up to his recent decision to leave his successful hedge fund and devote himself fully to journalism. Along the way, Confessions is packed with insights and revelations: the secrets behind the pricing of those formerly red-hot internet IPOs; the predatory instincts of insiders who attack bloodied stock funds; and more tales from Cramer's controversial simultaneous careers as a hedge-fund manager and a financial journalist. This book will generate a lot of buzz and -- from some quarters -- outrage.
As thrilling as the bestselling Liar's Poker, Confessions of a Street Addict is a high-wired, high-octane true tale of Wall Street, told by one of its most towering personalities.
