Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Contrary to Hollywood mythologizing, there are no wolves on Wall Street. Ruthless, greedy, and power-hungry individualists actually make terrible hedge-fund traders. If you're going to succeed in this business, you need to understand not only how America's financial markets work, but how being a team player makes you the most valuable asset to your company and clients.

In Bite the Ass Off a Bear, investment professional Garth Friesen reveals how hedge-fund traders thrive by developing the interpersonal skills necessary to act and react in a high-stakes field with integrity, reliability, and stress control. For aspiring and experienced traders, having a strong work ethic, persistent attitude, and likable personality are just as essential as mathematical and computer acumen and will take your career further than fabled lone-wolf tactics.

With indispensable information from a Wall Street insider, this book will prepare you for a challenging industry that's as full of risks as it is of rewards.
