    Story
    "An indepth vew into Hedge Fund managers"
    What did you love best about Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    I like the question and answer format of the writing. Instead of an overlaid narrative (which there was some) the questions probed deeper in the theories behind why certain managers made the decisions they did. Also, moving from one subject to the next allowed for you to observe contrasts between the managers. No one style or investment process was favored in the book. It seemed as the writer wanted to illustrate the fact that there was no one key strategy that lead to success but there was underlying traits in each manager that was common to success.


    What other book might you compare Hedge Fund Market Wizards to and why?

    I would say the book 'Quants' by Scott Patterson. It tells a similar story and the characters are the same so you almost feel familar with them.

    "Somewhat entertaining"

    Do the wizards interviewed have skill, or are they just lucky? We'll never know unless the author does a followup study a couple of decades from now. In either case, very little information presented in the book will help the average trader.

    "Insights and Insights"
    Would you listen to Hedge Fund Market Wizards again? Why?

    Yes. Just like all the Market Wizard books there is much insight that can be gained to help in trading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The actionable ideas, the honesty of traders that had huge losses, and huge wins, and what they learned.


    Any additional comments?

    It was tough to determine at times (chapter 1 & 2) if he was asking the question or answering. Then in all the other chapters he changed is tone when asking questions and answering so it was more enjoyable.

    "Tough listen, but stick through it, it gets better"

    started off hating this format (back and forth interview), but I decided to push through because the content is what I wanted to understand. in the long run, I liked this and have listened to it 2 times now.

    "It's a great book"

    It's a great book that really helps to open one's mind to a lot of trade opportunity's. This is helpful one one's quest to find their own trading style instead of replicating what others have done. Thank you Jack.

    "Great content, not the easiest listen"

    Probably a better read. Or have multiple narrators. Good to hear how others use different techniques. Worth the time for sure.

    Story
    "Excellent learning experience!"
    If you could sum up Hedge Fund Market Wizards in three words, what would they be?

    Tight risk control


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Edward Thorp, he is a legend in both trading and academic research. His thrilling stories in testing his theory at casinos were simply fascinating.


    What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?

    Clear and crispy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, the book is structured into multiply chapters for different interviews. Each interview has moderate length, hence could be listened in multiple sittings.

    "Excellent book if your into trading!!"
    If you could sum up Hedge Fund Market Wizards in three words, what would they be?

    Very interesting, insightful, perfect


    What other book might you compare Hedge Fund Market Wizards to, and why?

    Exactly what you would expect from the Market Wizards series!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book will give you insight into how top hedge fund managers think, their trials and tribulations. The learning and development process they all went through. It is amazing to hear how much money they play with. Also interesting part of the book is one trader got fired and lost so much money so many times that you would have thought he would give up a career in the markets. He persisted in his endeavours and now manages a fund worth millions. Definitely worth a read or listen to, if your into trading.
