Most Helpful

A terrific summery of a terrific series.

I'm a huge fan of the Market Wizards books and consider them compulsory reading for traders and investors. This is a very handy, compact summery of the principle lessons from several decades of Schwager's interviews with great traders of every kind, and draws out the key similarities that they share despite their vastly different styles and strategies.

It's a really useful refresher that one can quickly use to get back up to speed after a break from the markets, or following a losing period. Although it is not a substitute for reading the series in it's entirety, and wasn't intended to be.

Narrator is good.
