The book is a great read. However, is it always truthful? Case in point, the gut wrenching market sell off that almost destroyed Cramer Berkowitz in the fall of 1998. In the book Cramer describes how his wife, the ¿Trading Goddess,¿ held steady and bought and bought again as the market tanked on October 8, while he and Berkowitz wanted to sell. He describes theStreet.com piece he posted just after noon on that date, telling readers to get out, despite his wife¿s counseling to stay the course.

What did the post actually say? Referring to the crash of 1987, here¿s an excerpt (www.thestreet.com/_tscs/comment/wrong/32200.html):

¿Same thing now. Same wife saying get out. Same ugliness like you would not believe. And it was before the crash.¿

I have no idea what to make of this significant discrepancy.

    Worth the read

    Good book; lets the reader see a side of Wall Street we would otherwise not see. I have been following the exploits of Cramer on CNBC and on TheStreet.com, and it is interesting to read what was REALLY going on behind the scenes during that time. I appreciate Cramer's sincerity - he freely admits his mistakes and shortcomings. All in all, very entertaining and insightful. Kernan, TRADEthemove.com

    Honest confessions

    Enjoy reading the book. The main characters, Cramer, Karen, Peretz, Desai, Berkowitz are fascinatingly intertwined. It is a great book for anyone interested in the stock market.
