Starts on a poor point with an advertisement. Why would anyone want to pay for commercials.
Then it's been recorded on a cheap microphone and sounds artificial and compressed. Also the performances are weak.

Any additional comments?
Again I have over 400 books in my audio library and 95% of them are on stocks,finance,investing,economics.
This is one of the best one that I have bought ie’ the top 1%. I have been studying the stock market for about five years now and a how to book with insights and things a person can actually apply to their trading/investing tool box are very few and far between. This book is pure knowledge/experience of some of the great’s including Jack Schwager himself. For him to share his knowledge and that of traders/inverstors that have inspired him is truely a blessing. If you want your trading/investing to return dividends well worth the expense of this book and beyond this is definetly one that you will want to read/rememebr and apply!!!

Would you listen to Market Wizards again? Why?
I most definitely will read it again. This was by far the most educational book on trading I've read. It is also very motivating. I find that this, and Reminiscences of a Stock Operator the most important trading books to read. As you trade, you learn even more lessons by making the same mistakes as these traders have. You get so many life lessons here. The information may be dated but the psychology isn't - even in today's HFT ridden markets.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Market Wizards?
Each trader has a unique story. Each have earned a unique degree of success. I think the big kicker of this book is that you get so many different trader types and styles, sometimes even contradicting each other, but they are all successful. It goes to show that you need to find a style that suits your personality and there is not really a holy grail or one right way to trade. That alone is motivating and encouraging...You can even pick up tid-bits of traders that are most similar to you. I would definitely get this in audiobook form as it reads like two friends having a conversation throughout. You can tease more out of that than reading. None of the intonation/sarcasm is lost as the narrator himself has personal experience of the interviews. This was probably the best audiobook I've purchased thusfar.
What about Jack D. Schwager’s performance did you like?
His ability to convey the personality of his interview subjects. The book sounds like a conversation between two good friends with their vocal variety and intonation keeping you entertained.
