Comments Off on Jim Cramer Threw a Water Bottle at Todd Harrison

Todd Harrison, former head trader at Jim Cramer’s old hedge fund has a new book out, The Other Side of Wall Street: In Business It Pays to Be an Animal, In Life It Pays to Be Yourself, he supposedly has one chapter talking about working with Cramer. As you can imagine, Jimmy could be a little bit volatile. I wish we had some video from those days. Believe it or not, Cramer has apparently calmed down:

From Yahoo’s Breakout blog:

“One shocking account in the book details how Jim Cramer, now the host of CNBC’s Mad Money, smashed a keyboard and threw a water bottle at Harrison as he was walking out the door. Again the book is not a tell-all on working for Jim Cramer, but Harrison does tell Aaron what it was like working for him on a day-to-day basis.

“It was either the best day ever or the worst day imaginable — there were very few in betweens,” says Harrison. “I genuinely care for Jim as a person. I think his heart is in the right place. I think he is a good man, [but] professionally the relationship was untenable.”

I’m glad to hear Mr. Harrison still has love for Cramer, the guy is passionate about the market, which is infectious, but working for him on a day to day basis, that takes a unique kind of person. But again, Cramer is a new man since his hedge fund days, supposedly realizing he was going to have a heart attack if he kept up the maddening pace.
