    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    What a disappointing and non-resolved ending. The first two books were great. And this final book in the series was a dud... I should have stopped after 'Tommo & Hawk'.

    What separates the world's top traders from the vast majority of unsuccessful investors? Jack Schwager sets out to answer this question in his interviews with superstar money-makers including Bruce Kovner, Richard Dennis, Paul Tudor Jones, Michel Steinhardt, Ed Seykota, Marty Schwartz, Tom Baldwin, and more in Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders.

    What would have made Market Wizards better?

    I do not understand the good reviews!

    I have worked in the securities industry for over 20 years and was very disappointed with this book. I stopped listening about 1/3 of the way in…

    The stories are 20-30 years old.

    It seems to be ALL about futures and commodity trading.

    They all seem to ‘cheat’ the system by having account held away from their employer. Really??? Is it worth loosing your license?

    No info on how to get started as an investor. Many stories of risky trading practices - by putting all their eggs in one basket - and loosing it all.

    This is not the right book for someone looking to start investing – or anyone looking for info on equity (stock) trading.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jack D. Schwager’s performances?

    I don't think it's fair to blame Schwager for this. They used one reader for two person interviews - like they didn't want to spend the money for second reader.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Everything


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth my time.
