There's a lot to learn...

As someone of average intelligence, who has worked in finance my whole life, I didn't realise just how little I knew about the world of trading. There is an awful lot to learn and, I'll be completely honest, this book has put me off a bit.

I guess I thought I could open an online account, deposit some money and 'play'. Maybe I'd win some and those gains would cover the losses. Whatever, it would be great fun!

No.

There are so many choices to make even before you start trading that the 'fun' or 'exciting' element I was hoping for seems a long was away. The starting costs are inhibitive and really seem to stack the odds on making no money at all.

Costs to set-up, costs to deposit, costs to buy, costs to sell, costs to transfer, costs to withdraw...until I invest in a winner I'm going to be out of pocket for quite some time.

Now that's not to say I didn't enjoy the book or the style of delivery, quite the opposite. The Story element at the very beginning brought a big smile to my face. The passion and knowledge of the text is plain to see and I thought the book was read rather well indeed. I think the problem is that I was hoping for a simple introduction to the world of trading and it's going to be a lot more complicated than I first thought.

I would still recommend this book, however.
