    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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Concise and Broad"

    He interviews a broad range of traders and fund managers, and does a great job pulling out the most relevant content from each one. Very effective.

    Recommended by a friend, and I'll recommend it to my friends. My first market wizard read, and I'm now downloading another from the series.

    "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.

    "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.

    Yes, There are insights that you don't get elsewhere, but you will not get the appendix's with the audible version

    Was Hedge Fund Market Wizards worth the listening time?

    definitely


    Any additional comments?

    It sucks that you don't get the appendix's with the book. This is why only 3 stars instead of 5

    "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
    "Worth listening to"
    Where does Hedge Fund Market Wizards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is probably the most useful audiobook I have listened to so far. You get a lot of interesting, and sometimes conflicting perspectives from the various fund managers that were interviewed. Each manager has their own advice to give based on what has worked for them, but the key is that it worked for them and would not necessarily work for another fund manager.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite interview in this book is with Kevin Daly since his approach aligns most with my own inclinations.


    What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?

    I like the way that the narrator adjusts his pace and tone to reflect the characters of the different fund managers that were interviewed.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    -Determine what approach to trading best suits you as a trader-Stop doing what doesn't work, do more of what works


    Any additional comments?

    I have read 'Market Wizards' and 'The New Market Wizards' and I think that this newer book is worth reading also. The interviews reinforce some of the insight from the earlier books while adding context from the 2008 market crash and plenty of fresh insight.

    "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.
