    The Risk of Trading is a practical resource that takes an in-depth look at one of the most challenging factors of trading--risk management. The book puts a magnifying glass on the issue of risk, something that every trader needs to understand in order to be successful.

    What did you love best about The Risk of Trading?

    "Love?" Anyway, I didn't view risk assessment as a primary driver for trades before hearing this audiobook. Now, I won't assess a trade without giving heavy weight to survivability.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite concept was that of limiting risk whatever the perceived payout may be.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite topic was risk control.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book changed my approach to stock trading.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Alchemy of Finance to be better than the print version?

    no


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alchemy of Finance?

    Soros' theory that the markets help determine their own fates is well argued.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Grover Gardner?

    why not?


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Market anticipation of a future event may become self-defeating prophecy.


    Any additional comments?

    Alchemy of Finance should be read by anyone interested in economics or financial markets.

    Would you try another book from Burton G Malkiel and Charles D Ellis and/or Erik Synnestvedt?

    no


    Would you recommend The Elements of Investing to your friends? Why or why not?

    I don't recommend this book. It was a disappointing, redundant, cookie-cutter-advice investment advice book that at times seemed more geared toward manipulating the reader than informing me. I expected much better from Malkiel.


    What aspect of Erik Synnestvedt’s performance would you have changed?

    The 2-3 hour book can be reduced to a 2-3 minute list.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    LOL


    Any additional comments?

    If you do listen to the book, listen critically. Don't believe everything you hear.
