    "As a big Jack Schwager fan, this one falls short"
    Would you try another book from Jack D. Schwager and/or Clinton Wade?

    I've worked in the financial services industry for about 20 years and have read and recommended Market Wizards and New Market Wizards countless times. However, this book, which follows the same format, falls very, very short due to its horrible narration. Clinton Wade obviously knows nothing about the business as he cannot correctly pronounce arbitrage or muni. It's very distracting to listen to someone repeatedly say arbitrij and moonie. He does however change his voice somewhat effectively from question to answer, but his tone is so docile, it can lull you to sleep. I listen to books while I drive and over the years have listened to hundreds. Books on trading are at the top of my list and this one just fell so short. To be fair though, I read his other books, so I will read this and try to get past the horrible narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dull, slow, littered with mispronunciations and just an overall poor choice of narrator.

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

    This book is just a transcript of several interviews. Thank goodness the people being interviewed have lively stories. The book literaly says Hello Mr X. Tell me about x..... then a response, then a question, and on and on. Not even an attempt at a story line. There are chapter summaries at the end of each chapter too with highlights. If you want to read this book, get the print versions and skip to the summaries. The rest is best for skimming only.

    To make an audio version better, there would need to actually be a plot or story. Something that allowed the chapters to flow together and not be an anthology of interviews. There is no context to make me care about what these people say


    What could Jack D. Schwager have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Provide more background to market conditions, sense of common time and place, etc... The book Quants covered similar events in a much more enjoyable fashion. It had pace and urgency that an interview transcript really lacks.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Clinton Wade’s performances?

    Probably, he did well considering the format of the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    There is no cohesion between chapters. Each chapter is like, meet Mr X. Mr X tell me about your investing strategy.... Q&A, Q&A, Q&A, over and over again. Difficult to listen to. Probably ok to skim read, but not for the car ride listen.
