Laughing At Wall Street

Laughing At Wall Street

$20,000 to $2 million in only three years— the greatest stock-picker you never heard of tells you how you can do it too Chris Camillo is not a stockbroker, financial analyst, or hedge fund manager. He is an ordinary person with a knack for identifying trends and discovering great investments hidden in everyday life. In early 2007, he invested $20,000 in the stock market, and in three years it grew to just over $2 million. With Laughing at Wall Street, you'll see: •How Facebook friends helped a young parent invest in the wildly successful children's show, Chuggington—and saw her stock values climb 50% •How an everyday trip to 7-Eleven alerted a teenager to short Snapple stock—and tripled his money in seven days •How $1000 invested consecutively in Uggs, True Religion jeans, and Crocs over five years grew to $750,000 •How Michelle Obama caused J. Crew's stock to soar 186%, and Wall Street only caught up four months later! Engaging, narratively-driven, and without complicated financial analysis, Camillo's stock picking methodology proves that you do not need large sums of money or fancy market data to become a successful investor.

We Got The Beat

We Got The Beat

An exuberant celebration of dance and play in picture book form, based on Charlotte Caffey's joyful classic made famous by the Go-Go's. See the people walking down the street Fall in line just watching all their feet They don't know where they want to go But they're walking in time They got the beat... We Got the Beat is a children's picture book based on the hit song by the 1980s new wave group the Go-Go's. Consisting of five members, the all-female band rocked the nation with their charisma and musical genius. Their hit song "We Got the Beat" spent three weeks at #2 on the Billboard 100 and became their signature song. Says the New York Times: the Go-Go's "taught a new generation the power of the girl gang." With lyrics by Go-Go's member Charlotte Caffey and illustrations by Kaitlyn Shea O'Connor, this picture book tells the story of what it is like to live life dancing to the beat, while enjoying friends, nature, and the fun that surrounds you. We Got the Beat will make both parents and children get their groove on and show off their best dance moves. "Songs like 'We Got the Beat' were built with a timeless durability as solidly constructed as a Motown hit." --New York Times

The Man Who Solved The Market

The Man Who Solved The Market

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Shortlisted for the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award The unbelievable story of a secretive mathematician who pioneered the era of the algorithm--and made $23 billion doing it. Jim Simons is the greatest money maker in modern financial history. No other investor--Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Ray Dalio, Steve Cohen, or George Soros--can touch his record. Since 1988, Renaissance's signature Medallion fund has generated average annual returns of 66 percent. The firm has earned profits of more than $100 billion; Simons is worth twenty-three billion dollars. Drawing on unprecedented access to Simons and dozens of current and former employees, Zuckerman, a veteran Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, tells the gripping story of how a world-class mathematician and former code breaker mastered the market. Simons pioneered a data-driven, algorithmic approach that's sweeping the world. As Renaissance became a market force, its executives began influencing the world beyond finance. Simons became a major figure in scientific research, education, and liberal politics. Senior executive Robert Mercer is more responsible than anyone else for the Trump presidency, placing Steve Bannon in the campaign and funding Trump's victorious 2016 effort. Mercer also impacted the campaign behind Brexit. The Man Who Solved the Market is a portrait of a modern-day Midas who remade markets in his own image, but failed to anticipate how his success would impact his firm and his country. It's also a story of what Simons's revolution means for the rest of us.
