Critical Praise for NO BULL
"No Bull . . . is a breath of fresh air in a traditionally windy genre."
The Wall Sreet Journal
"Michael Steinhardt rode bull and bear markets to great success for himself and his investors. No Bull is a highly readable inside look into the man, his successes, and his motivations."
George Soros, Chairman, Soros Fund Management, and Chairman,
The Soros Foundations Network
"Michael Steinhardt has written a fascinating history of his experiences in the tumultuous economic times of the last forty years. His reflections are endlessly interesting, totally candid, very instructive, moving, warm, and in many ways, inspirational."
Laurence A. Tisch, Co-Chairman, Loews Corporation
"Michael Steinhardt has penned a joyous book about his rich (in every way) experiences on Wall Street, filled with angst . . . and reminiscent of a World of Our Fathers as only Steinhardt would know."
James J. Cramer, Markets Commentator for TheStreet.com and CNBC
"No Bull is a memoir rich in language, in detail, and in self-awareness."
Marty Peretz, Editor in Chief, The New Republic

He is also widely known for his philanthropic activities, particularly in the Jewish communitymost notably as cofounder with Charles Bronfman of "birthright israel," a program whose mission is to provide a free educational opportunity for every young Jewish person of the Diaspora to visit Israel.

Super intellectual stimulating and remind me what it takes to become a good portfolio manager. A role model for me not only in investment career but also how to give back to greater cause once you are at a position to give.
Thanks for the generosity of writing the book and share the insights with me.
I wish reading more biographies from legendary investors.
The book is basically a biography, in which he describes how his father, his religion (even tough he calls himself an atheist) and his education have had an impact on his life, in private as well as in his work.
The way he writes is entertaining, and I found myself finishing the book within only a few days.
Not a book about investing. Don't buy it to improve your trading results!
Buy it for learning about the person behind stellar investment performance.
The unique fact about Steinhardt is he never seemed to be quite comfortable with his profession or his religeon. Early in his hedge fund career he took a year off only to come back for many more years. Later, he shut down his hedge fund in what you could argue was the height of his career.
His views on religeon are even more unique. Very Jewish, he considers himself an atheist while supporting Israel and charities to promote the Jewish culture in younger Americans. I applaud his philanthropic commitment.
I strongly recommend this book if you have interest in investing and want to read about one of the success stories and how it happened.
