Somewhat overlong and less infuriating than I had heard, this book was still interesting and revealing. The terrible truth that the individual investor can't hope to play the stock-picking game comes through loud and clear.

The author paints a rosy picture of his own actions, which seems maybe disingenuous, but so what? First of all, if he did anything wrong, he can't reveal it here since he never went to trial and thus isn't benefitting from double jeopardy. Second, wouldn't we be suspicious of his story if he did admit to deceptions? Lastly, what if he is clean? Apparently, not all readers would believe it (see other reviews of this book.)

A worthwhile read, but if you are already a conspiracy theorist, it'll just get you worked up.
