    Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author was too granular. There is no need to spend 1/3 of the book describing his individual trades, executing prices etc. Painful!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure.


    Which character – as performed by Jason McCoy – was your favorite?

    There are no characters in this book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market?

    The author was too granular. There is no need to spend 1/3 of the book describing his individual trades, executing prices etc. Painful!


    Any additional comments?

    The total listening time of this book is about 3.5 hrs. The author spends 1/3 of his time discussing the granular dimensions of his trades. Its a very painful read. An example would be while attempting to describe how he lost money using a specific tactic, instead of saying: This tactic lost me $4000.00, he says: Bought IBM $100. Sold IBM 97, Bought ABX $22., Sold ABX 17.....and he will literally describe 20 trades in the exact same way. He does this throughout the entire book. It almost feels like filler. He has nothing pertinent to say so he lengthens the discussing to fill up pages. In his defense, there are a few good lessons here but by the time you get to them you'll be so frustrated because of how long winded the author is you'll be forced to rewind. Not worth the money spent!
