Anyone who has ever invested has heard of Jim Cramer, the star of the Mad Money TV show on CNBC and the chairman and founder of TheStreet.com (TST). He is also the author of many books, including Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World, Jim Cramer's Getting Back to Even, and his latest book Jim Cramer's Get Rich Carefully.
However, my favorite is Confessions of a Street Addict. This is a down in the trenches book, which shows what happened as a hedge fund manager, with no holds barred. The book is autobiographical, covering his upbringing, college, stint at Goldman Sachs (GS), then on to become his own money manager.
Jim Cramer talks about a lot of his trades, both good and bad, and he fully discloses how he acted when things went against him. A lot of keyboards thrown! He even writes about the almost failure and success of TheStreet.com.
If you have never read Confessions of a Street Addict and are looking for a great read that you could take with you on a plane or just read at home, I highly recommend that you read it.
