    Story

    A proprietary trading firm consists of a group of professionals who trade the capital of the firm. Their income and livelihood is generated solely from their ability to take profits consistently out of the markets. The world of prop trading is mentally and emotionally challenging, but offers substantial rewards to the select few who can master this craft called trading.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to One Good Trade the most enjoyable?

    I really liked how the author would convey learning topics with real-life examples in the form of stories. He used actual people's hard learned lessons to teach the reader some things to do and some things not to do. The stories had depth and meaning and were enjoyable to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how real the entire book felt. I feel like I now know Bella and Steve like they were my personal mentors. I feel like I could walk up to any person mentioned in the book and strike up a conversation like we were best buds from college. Most books on the stock market are very dry and hard to stay interested in but not "One Good Trade"! Out of the dozens of Trading books I have read/listened to this one is by far my favorite.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Although it is hard to talk about an actual scene in this book I would have to say I liked how Bella would describe the different traders and their trading style. It was helpful for me to hear how different people had different styles of trading and what worked best for them.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One Good Trade!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, really one of the best books about trading out there. It has just enough teaching as it does story telling to keep me interested and coming back for more. I have listened to this book prolly 6-7 times in its entirety. It is that good.

    Story
    (9)

    During Wall Street's last big bull market, there were brokers in $3,000 suits, billion-dollar IPO's, and 30-year-olds making $100,000 a month. And then there was Louis Pasciuto, who came from Staten Island at the age of 19 and discovered one indelible truth about himself: He was born to steal. This is the astounding, true story of the rise and fall of this fast-talking, street-smart wiseguy, as well as the insidious ways the Mob infiltrates, then controls, Wall Street.

    Steve says: "a great listen"
    "A truly enjoyable story for anyone that trades."

    If you could sum up Born to Steal in three words, what would they be?

    Open Your Eyes


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I actually felt like the person telling the story had done what he was talking about. He tells the story well and it was very easy to listen to.


    What does Frank Whaley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Frank brings an incredible amount of emotion in his speaking style, not monotone and definitely not boring.


    If you could give Born to Steal a new subtitle, what would it be?

    A Hustler's guide to selling stocks.
