This books is mostly advertisement for other products the author offers (most cost several hundred dollars and some are not available anyway)
Even though i would not recommend this books at all, it does have some positive things (hence the reason i gave it 2 stars).
The book is written as several testimonials about how good Dr. Tharp's workshops are
The book is divided into 3 parts the first part Dr. Tharp emphasizes the importance of position sizing and says that one should have different systems for each different market (Bull, Bear, Etc).
unfortunately that's all the trading advice you'll get from the book after that the book becomes a self help, spiritual guide. Where Dr. Tharp students testify that trading in peace and accepting what the market does without the need to be right will make you happy.
I am sure that the 2nd and 3rd part (about physiology and spiritual awakening) will help some people...
But, as far as trading is concerned, the book and this review are equally helpful. The book might be a little deeper, but since the way that book is written is so convoluted even if you would like to go back and read again some part (that you found helpful) you actually need to read a whole chapter about how much good you will get from paying Dr. Tharp a few hundred dollars.
Usually when you read a book you have a very good Idea how good or bad it is after the first hour or 50 pages you read...
And by that measure this book is great!
But this book just keep getting better and better as you progress... And thank G-d, Prof. Daniel Kahneman wrote a long book!
First of all let me say I really liked the book.
The reason I don't give it a perfect score it's becasuse I was expecting the book to relate to more personal relations (spouse, kids, parents, friends, etc) Instead of professional relations (clients, managers, emploees, etc.)
I don't think the author had anything wrong, it was my expectation that was wrong...
Einsten was exciting character. He was charming, humble and SMART... way Smarter than the rest of us.
That's why there are so many biographies about him.
But Walter Isaacson's managed to stand out because his a great writer that can really involve you in the text.
He also had some new material that no other biograhpy had.
The Narration is also very good.
I definitely recommend the audiobook.
