Where does Hedge Fund Market Wizards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was a good listen, certainly one of the better books I have listened to in the investments area.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Hedge Fund Market Wizards?
There were several good interviews I will likely listen once again.
What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?
He has done a good job reading the interviews. I liked that he tried to change his voice differently for each interview and when Schwager was talking.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Given the topic of the book, not really...
Any additional comments?
I would love if the older Schwager books would be available also here at audible...
I have read those long time ago and would certainly listen to them again.
Any additional comments?
I'm a huge fan of the Market Wizards series, and this sticks solidly to the core format: fascinating interviews with industry greats, presented and clearly summarized with a clear intention of making you a savvier trader. Loved the content.
Unfortunately this particularly book is a much harder listen than the others in the series because of the coma-inducing narrator. The entire book is read in an almost perfectly flat, lifeless monotone. The pace of reading is inexplicably slow, and totally lacks personality and colour. Real shame.
What did you love best about Hedge Fund Market Wizards?
I like the question and answer format of the writing. Instead of an overlaid narrative (which there was some) the questions probed deeper in the theories behind why certain managers made the decisions they did. Also, moving from one subject to the next allowed for you to observe contrasts between the managers. No one style or investment process was favored in the book. It seemed as the writer wanted to illustrate the fact that there was no one key strategy that lead to success but there was underlying traits in each manager that was common to success.
What other book might you compare Hedge Fund Market Wizards to and why?
I would say the book 'Quants' by Scott Patterson. It tells a similar story and the characters are the same so you almost feel familar with them.

Jack Schwager has an immense talent for interviewing successful people and distilling the lessons for the rest of us. Excellent choice of traders, Breadth of trading styles, and topics/questions - truly something for everyone.
The narrator helps the listener through the interviews by changing his tone and speaking style; the voice for Jack is consistent, and the voice of the interviewee changes, presumably to match the style of the actual person's voice. There are a few awkward mid phrase pauses here and there, but overall great presentation.
