Description



About the Book



This national bestseller is the warts-and-all account of life on Wall Street in the go-go high-tech era by the man "USA Today" calls "the media's most electrifying market pundit."



Book Synopsis



Bestselling author Jim Cramer takes readers on a wild Wall Street ride--revealing how to play the game, who breaks the rules, and who gets hurt.

Everyone on Wall Street knows Jim Cramer, and Cramer knows Wall Street better than anyone. In the most candid and outrageous look at Wall Street since Liar's Poker, Cramer, co-founder of TheStreet.com, radio and television commentator, and for years a premier money manager, takes readers on the wild ride that is Wall Street -- revealing how the game is played, who breaks the rules, and who gets hurt.

Confessions of a Street Addict takes us from Cramer's roots in the middle-class Philadelphia suburbs to Harvard, where he began managing money, and then to Goldman Sachs, where he went into business with his wife -- Karen, the "Trading Goddess" -- as his partner. He brilliantly describes the life of a money manager: the frenetic pace, the constant pressure to outperform the market and other fund managers, and the sharklike attacks fund managers make as they circle a fund perceived to be in trouble.

Throughout the book Cramer is characteristically outspoken, offering his hard-won insights about the market and everyone in it, himself included. There has never been a more eloquent market insider than Cramer, nor a more high-octane book about Wall Street.



Review Quotes




The Washington Post Book World There may be no better glimpse into the workings of Wall Street over the past fifteen years than this one, which can be read with pleasure even by those who don't know a bull from a bear....a riveting memoir.

USA Today Unflinching, rat-a-tat-tat style...[Cramer's] hair-raising descriptions of Wall Street in the waning days of the bull market are worth the price of admission....a cautionary tale for any small investor tempted by stock market hype and mania.

David Denby The New Yorker Bellicose, self-justifying, coarse, infantile, lovable, and even at times, saintly....He is the greatest public generator of excitement and knowledge about the market today.
