If you lost $350,000 in trading, would you have what it takes to move back to the farm, and milk cows after your day job?
Well that's just what Mark Cook did, and his story while very unique and full of personality has the trajectory of a lot
of traders in this book. They all put in inordinate amount of time, perfected a method and style that matched their personalty,
and learned how to read through the indicators, past the Wall Street choir, and make it their own way.

Schwager's book both won't m

It feels really good to kind of be 'in' on conversations with these Market big-shots. They know their craft, they've been through the ringers, and they do what they do better than anyone else out there! There are some VERY useful insights to be had from this book.

I wasn't a huge fan of the format, the large number of 'wizards' of methods that I won't even be able to think about until I am doing MUCH better off (though there are still insights to be had their), and I would guess the book could ha

This is one remarkable book which contains interviews of 15 top traders. Each trader has some common traits and each trader some unique philosophy about the market. Everything is so well articulated throughout the book by Jack D. Schwager that I could feel the blood pumping through my veins while reading the experiences and methodologies used by these traders. People who have passion for stock market should find this book thrilling.

Excellent book, some of the investor/traders interviewed in the market where extreamly motivational.

In this book Mr. Schwager not only interview these investors before the great Bull run of the Dot.com era but also followed up on these investors after the great crash. I found this to be an excellent part of the book. Showing how great investors can handle both the upside and downside.

Good book that outlined to me the emotional discipline , as well as emotional tenacity to accept failure when dealing with stocks. I have also learnt how important it is to treat stock trading as a vocation, and I hope to review my own career plans as well, hopefully aligning them to the real pressures of the corporate world. Books was made better by the fact I got it for $2 lol.

The third in the bestselling Market Wizards series, this time focusing on the barometer of the economy - the stock market.

It has been nearly a decade since the publication of the highly successful The New Market Wizards. The interim has witnessed the most dynamic bull market in US stock history, a collapse in commodity prices, dramatic failures in some of the world′s lea

Despite being 10 years old, still a great read. I recommend the interviews with David Shaw, Alphonse Fletcher, and John Bender. I read this 5 years ago, then took it with me on a flight and still was able to get a lot of new insight.

Another one of Schwager's interview books - this one focuses exclusively on those who trade stocks. I found it pretty interesting, with a number of useful tidbits and nuggets to use in my own trading.

If you like the stock-market this is a good book. One thing I gained from it is the importance in discipline in all aspects of our lives.

Some great interviews and concluding 65 "lessons" nicely draws together the advice from each of the traders interviewed.

Great way to hear 10-15 very successful traders talk about their craft and get into their minds a little.

Interviews with the best traders and investors.

i skipped factual q/a parts. I only read the summary of each trader's vision.

Everybody trades differently. Find your personality in the market, find your edge and stick to it.
