Well worth the money


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!!!

- XEVEN "I have over 500 books in my library"

Excelent book, but the narrator needs to slow down

Any additional comments?

As a professional trader, I have read many books on the subject. Jack Schwager's are amongst the best. .

I was excited to see that Audible had released a recording of Market Wizards, however the narrator was very difficult to follow. He raced through the book like he was late for something without considering context or punctuation. I spent the first chapter trying to keep up with what he was saying, without being able to enjoy the story.

I ended up listing the entire book at .5 speed, which is something I have never done before. That didn't take as much getting used to as you might expect, because even at half speed, the tempo wasn’t much slower than it should have been if read normally. I prefer to enjoy my audiobooks at a normal reading speed that allows me to think through what I'm listening to.

Hedge Fund Market Wizards, which I have also listened to on Audible, did not have this issue.
