About the Author
Michael Kimelman is a graduate of Lafayette College and the University of Southern California Law School. Formerly an associate at Sullivan & Cromwell, he was the Founder & Managing Partner of Incremental Capital, a New York based hedge fund with over $250 million in assets, which closed shortly after his arrest. A serial entrepreneur, he is currently consulting and launching new ventures in the culinary, retail, and entertainment spaces. He actively volunteers his time to several causes, including prison and education reform. He lives in Mamaroneck, New York.
"When prosecutors place a political agenda and career ambition over truth and justice, people inevitably get trampled. Michael Kimelman is a perfect example of that collateral damage." - Joe Tacopina, celebrity criminal defense lawyer and owner of the Venezia FC Futbol team

"Kimelman is guilty of one thing: writing a helluva book. If you want a front row seat to a Wall Street witch-hunt - read this." - Turney Duff, bestselling author of The Buy Side

"Kimelman delivers a taut page-turner that gives readers an inside seat at the real life Billions that are a daily part of the cutthroat world of proprietary traders. He also exposes a criminal justice system in which prosecutors will do anything to win a case and questions of innocence are far less important than notching a victory. In this disturbing and cautionary tale from the inner sanctums of Wall Street to Federal prison, Kimelman ultimately tells a singular and riveting tale of survival and endurance." - Gerald Posner, author of God's Bankers: A History of Money and Power at the Vatican

"Kimelman's account as a defendant in the federal criminal justice system provides insights into just how broken and frightening that system has become." - Walt Pavlo, Jr., Forbes columnist and co-author of Stolen Without a Gun

"If you like wild rides, you'll love Confessions of a Wall Street Insider, Michael Kimelman's gripping, well-written, memoir of his incredible journey from an associate at the tony law firm Sullivan & Cromwell to the lunacy of day trading, and into the great beyond of Wall Street hedge funds. When he's arrested for insider trading in 2009, the adventure really begins." - William D. Cohan, best-selling author of House of Cards: A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street.

"As most media outlets touted Bharara's record of wins and losses, few looked into the tactics used to win a number of these cases. Now, Michael Kimelman gives us a view of what it was like.... If you work on Wall Street, you owe it to yourself to take a read about the risks you take on when you go to work each day. If you don't work on Wall Street you owe it to yourself to be informed." - Forbes
