An unvarnished look at how Wall Street and hedge funds really operate, offering real–world lessons that you can put to good use

"An engaging and fascinating memoir of a Wall Street insider who foresaw the crisis and lost his job for it. McCullough has written an insightful firsthand account of our modern Rome before and after its fall. The author stands head and shoulders above his peers with his phenomenal trading track record, personal integrity, and skill at communicating his unique experiences." Richard L. Peterson, MD, Managing Director, MarketPsy Capital, LLC; author of Inside the Investor′s Brain

"If an unholy offspring of Lester Bangs and Don Cherry traded and wrote a financial market diary, it might be something like the smart, hip, and crunching commentary hedge fund manager Keith McCullough delivers every day. Keith is on a short list of must–reads in a business filled with also–rans." Dr. Paul Kedrosky, Editor, Infectious Greed; Managing Director, IG Holdings; Senior Fellow, Kauffman Foundation

"Diary of a Hedge Fund Manager should be added to the list of must–read books on Wall Street. It is very rare that readers get this kind of insight into the world of what Wall Street calls the ′smart money.′ McCullough′s exciting and inspirational story reinforces the fact that hard work pays off. The book does a great job of pointing out that, on Wall Street, common sense and hard work trump a PhD without actually saying it. His honesty is refreshing and reminds us all that the giants of the hedge fund world are mere mortals. This story is one that both Wall Street and Main Street can relate to and learn from." Douglas M. Famigletti, CFA, Managing Director, Griffin Asset Management, Inc.
