A fun read for those interested in investing who enjoy a good biography. For over twenty years, Steinhardt was at the cutting edge of New York investing, in the process establishing the first major hedge fund and amassing a personal fortune. This books is full of practical wisdom, anecdotes and advice. It won't teach you how to be a great investor (Steinhardt's approach is too personalized and erratic to emulate) but it will give you a few thinking points and some inspiration.

An honest autobiography by a hedge fund manager. A page-turner yet skipped some personal stuff except the story of finance. His father and nation (Israel) affected a lot in his personal life. Described the trading as an intellectual activity.

If you read this like a biography, then you will not be disappointed if you were to read it like an investment book.

Classic, another from the neighborhood down-to-earth Brooklyn Jew. As Enjoyable as Neiderhoffers account.

I read somewhere that this book was recommended by Nassim Taleb as a book to read by someone who's "done it". I had never heard of Michael Steinhardt so I sat on this for awhile. I was recently looking for an easy read and I was pleasantly surprised.

I'm not sure if it is a feel good book, a success story, a cautionary tale or simply an illustration of what happened in his very eventful life. Maybe all of them. Micheal Steinhardt turns out to be very successful in most areas of life, but flawed

I was happier when pursuing success than I was at savouring the fruits.

At the age of 38, after being in the business for 11 years, Steinhardt decided to quit, as he had grown tired of the process. He wasnt burnt out. He got convinced to take a 1 year sabbatical instead and retired at age of 54.

Extremely compelling account, first hand, of Michael Steinhardt (hedge fund pioneer and investing legend), and his career in and out of the markets. Not only does he give you a flavor for his investing style but he comes across as a compelling, interesting human study, not perfect by any means but a really unique character. Has a dry sense of humor and quite well written too.

Honesty with himself and the variant perception. Failure came through short-term orientation, over-diversification, emotional weakness.
