Editorial Reviews

Review

Don't listen to the talking heads on TV. Instead, let Wade Slome tell you what it's really like to run one of the largest mutual funds in the country. And don't be fooled by all the zeros, the lessons he learns along the way are applicable to anyone with a stock portfolio, no matter the size. --Haruki Toyama (President - Toyama Capital Management LLC)<br /><br />Slome provides valuable insight into the high pressure, extremely stressful life of a big time portfolio manager. Aside from professional sports there are few professions where one's results are tabulated on a daily basis which can result in quite a rollercoaster ride. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone contemplating a career in the money management industry or for those who want a clear inside perspective of what it is really like to manage billions of dollars of other people's money. --Richard A. Eisinger (Sr. Portfolio Manager - Madison Investment Advisors, Inc.)<br /><br />You might want to dislike a guy who has so much success at a young age, but I think you'll agree that Slome's accomplishments are achieved through hard work and attention to detail, in addition to a natural instinct for investments. Sometimes the good guy wins! --Mike Kerrane (Director of Credit Trading - JPMorgan Securities)

I actually bought the book on sidoxia.com. This is one of those books that's really hard to put down once you start reading. It's written in a manner that's easily understood, even if you're not big banking or investing savvy. Very informative, not to mention, Wade's a hoot! You can totally tell his heart and soul went into this book. Very charismatic and captivating. I highly recommend this book!

In these uncertain economic times, Wade Slome brings renewed confidence to the investment industry. This is a capable, visionary, yet realistic individual who has an amazing track record within this volatile business. No smoke and mirrors, just brains and hard work. I would trust this guy to invest my grandmother's last dime. Buy this book and meet Wade for yourself. You'll be glad you took the time.
