The Daily Coyote by Shreve Stockton

A total and pleasant surprise. I picked up this book in a brief moment of boredom at a rental vacation house. I read the cover summary....I expected a poorly written, shallow, disconnected series of blog posts. I was wrong. I couldn't put the book do ...more
One Good Trade by Mike Bellafiore
Rate this book
Clear rating
One Good Trade far exceeded my expectations. I am not an intraday trader; I have no plans to become one; my brain and my personality are not wired for such trading. Hence, the reason for my low expectations on the book. My expectations were wrong. On ...more
It's Your Ship by D. Michael Abrashoff
Rate this book
Clear rating
The actual writing in It's Your Ship is average at best (that is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars), but the message makes up for the writing. The management lessons, if taken to heart, will benefit managers the rest of their career. Mr. Abrashoff i ...more

The Fall is a bit difficult to describe, especially if I want to avoid any spoilers (which I do). It was thoroughly engaging novel from the very first page....I had a hard to putting the book down. The Fall begins with a surprise and ends with anothe ...more

The Aggressive Conservative Investor focuses exclusively on value investing....specifically in distressed securities, which is a different approach than Warren Buffet's value strategy. The authors, writing in the 1970's, take an analytical approach t ...more
Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Rate this book
Clear rating
I had mixed feelings about this book. The highlight of the book is its very premise: "There is danger for investors in not understanding the role of randomness in the financial markets." Nassim Taleb is brilliant for his analysis of randomness....mak ...more

This was not the typical Grisham legal thriller with a myriad of well-thought-out twists and turns that lead to a wonderfully surprising ending. Instead....John Grisham has a different purpose in mind. He is committed to highlighting the plight of th ...more

Vintage John Grisham. An engaging, thoroughly entertaining novel. John Grisham can write! He is excellent at creating the realistic but completely mesmerizing novel. I don't seem to tire of his writing. Sycamore Row has a distinctly higher emotional ...more
