Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
This is a story of personal experience, although none of what you’re about to read comes from a place of perceived accomplishment. I’m not particularly proud of some of the details in this book, but they helped shape the person I am today.
I confused net worth with self-worth.
I didn’t know the difference between having fun and being happy.
I looked for validation in the bottom of a bank account, and when I arrived at where I thought I wanted to be, I wanted—and needed—more.
…I never thought I was that guy.
In this stunning personal memoir, founder and CEO of Minyanville Media and former president of Cramer Berkowitz, Todd Harrison narrates his incredible Wall Street story: a tale of rise, fall, and redemption so remarkable that Oliver Stone featured it in his 20th anniversary Wall Street documentary.
Harrison reveals the hidden side of Wall Street: the extreme personalities, the testosterone-driven lifestyles, the euphoria, the despair…and what happens when it’s all over.
You’ll share a ringside view of the rise of high-stakes finance through the ’90s and ’00s—and the titanic collapse that followed. You’ll also discover what it’s really like to partner with Jim Cramer—the highs, the lows, and everything in between.
This is a story you had to live to tell. Harrison lived it and survived to tell it—unforgettably.
