This book gives a great perspective of a investor just starting out and trying to feel their way through the stock market. Touches on many of the subjects that hamper new and experienced traders, like over-trading, death by commissions, selling winners and letting losers run, and gambling. Nice to know that someone who succeeded made the same mistakes as you along the way.
The non-wall street type innocence of the Darvas.
I've listened to this audiobook several times, and purchased the book and have read it through twice as well. This book put me on an entirely different way of trading. The two biggest helps for me were for cutting losses and simplifying my technical analysis. Granted, you basically need to subscribe to IBD to be able to use all the tools, but a great book nonetheless.
May not be a great book for newcomers to the stock market, but for those who have been buying and selling but feel pushed around it can help bring some understanding to why the market moves the way it does.
