An accessible look at the art of investing and how to adopt the practices of top professionals
What differentiates the highly successful market practitioners - the Market Wizards - from ordinary traders? What traits do they share? What lessons can the average trader learn from those who achieved superior returns for decades while still maintaining strict risk control? Jack Schwager has spent the past 25 years interviewing the market legends in search of the answers - a quest chronicled in four prior Market Wizards volumes totaling nearly 2,000 pages.
In The Little Book of Market Wizards, Jack Schwager seeks to distill what he considers the essential lessons he learned in conducting nearly four dozen interviews with some of the world's best traders. The book delves into the mindset and processes of highly successful traders, providing insights that all traders should find helpful in improving their trading skills and results.
Stepping clearly outside the narrow confines of most investment books, The Little Book of Market Wizards focuses on the value of understanding one's self within the context of successful investing.

I am inspired by the beautiful women, girls, and men who I’ve met over the years that lack the self-esteem to recognize their own beauty.
If you are in to the subject matter, you are going to love this book. Jack Schwager has written lots of these books and it is fascinating to hear the inside stories from people who successfully trade the market. Mr. Schwager is no slouch either, he knows the core questions to ask, in fact it is hard to imagine he could ask more to the point questions without being tossed out of the office as a corporate spy.
Easy to listen to but perhaps this book could have used two narrators as he uses voice styles to try and play some of the people being interviewed, it gets a tiny bit confusing.
First I would recommend reading the series then this, as this is just a summary. The lessons here are timeless.
As always, great work by Mr Schwager. This is a summery of some of the good parts of market wizards. However it's just that, a summery. If you are interested in this topic: read market wizards.
