Excerpt: What a wild ride it has been. From trading penny stocks in high school stock market competitions after the 1987 Crash , to trading billions of dollars whilst elbowing with the likes of Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google), Jeff Bezos (CEO of Amazon), and John Chambers (CEO of Cisco Systems)...I have seen it all. There is no playbook for managing billions of dollars, starting your own investment firm, and running a hedge fund. My life story has been rather circuitous, taking me everywhere from California to New York and from Australia to China along the way. I even took a nine year pit-stop in America s heartland, where I managed a $20,000,000,000.00 fund at American Century Investments. As a freshly minted MBA grad from Cornell University in 1998, I never expected in my wildest dreams to land on one of the 10 biggest funds in the U.S. America, what a great place to live! My journey eventually sucked me back towards the Pacific Ocean, where I now lead my investment practice in Newport Beach, California. The opening of market trading hours at 6:30 a.m. is not ideal out here on the West Coast, but sleep is overrated I can rest in the afterlife.

About the Author:

Wade W. Slome, CFA, CFP® is President and Founder of Sidoxia Capital Management. Mr. Slome has worked in the investment industry since 1993. In 2005 Bloomberg identified him as the second youngest manager among the largest 25 actively-managed U.S. mutual funds. Prior to founding Sidoxia Capital Management, Mr. Slome served as Portfolio Manager on American Century Investments largest mutual fund, Ultra, from October 2002 through August 2007. As the senior Portfolio Manager on Ultra in 2007, Mr. Slome was responsible for day-to-day trading and marketing duties. Ultra at times exceeded $20 billion in assets and was among the nation s top 10 Large Cap Growth funds according to the assets under management during his tenure.

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)

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.)

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)
