Not a Book for Investors

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-12-18

This book provides some good strategies for profesional traders but it's not a good book if your goal is to be a long term investor like many of the everyday people navigating the markets. In order to be successful with this strategy you would need to beat the markets by over 100% just to stay ahead of the transaction costs. The trading fees with this strategy would be enormous. Leave it to the professionals.

Same Law of Attraction Concepts heard before

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-04-18

No new information. Same old law of attraction concepts you've heard in all those types of books. No real action plans of how to attain wealth, health, or anything else. If you're heard one law of attraction book you've heard them all. The only people having it all are the writers of this garbage. Give me something way more concrete that I can really use like investing concepts, estate planning ideas, tax and debt relief information, or insurance protection rules. Not all this hocus pocus law of attraction fluff. I'm not impressed. Don't waste your money or your precious time on this crap.

Ayn Rand 's Philosophy Gives True Clarity

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-11-17

Ayn Paul's philosophy gives true clarity to life. I was once blind and now I see. She is by far one of the greatest philosophers of our time. Her truth cannot be denied. There is no rationality in collective thinking. If we all strive to be our best selves there is no telling what we can accomplish. Oh by the way Great Book!!!

Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds human life - the life proper to a rational being - as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with human nature, with the creative requirement of survival, and with a free society.

Ayn Rand is one of our greatest philosophers. Her book The Virtue of Selfishness is the best book I have ever listened to. Her doctrine of Objectivity is pure and allows us to be our best selves.

Reviewed: 10-15-17

Good book. One of the original books on the Secret. Basically "Act as If" you already have it. Show gratitude for what you already have. Be single minded know that you want. Practice positive affirmations stay away from negative thoughts. Remember there's more than enough to go around for everyone, so no need to compete. And lastly, take action and you're there. Easy right? That 's the science and secret in a nut shell. ☺

Some traders distinguish themselves from the herd. These supertraders make millions of dollars - sometimes in hours - and consistently outperform their peers. As he did in his acclaimed national best seller, Market Wizards, Jack Schwager interviews a host of these supertraders, spectacular winners whose success occurs across a spectrum of financial markets. These traders use different methods, but they all share an edge. How do they do it? What separates them from the others? What can they teach the average trader or investor?

The book was okay if you're interested in various and vastly different philosophies of option traders. The philosophies were all over the place with nothing really tying the divergent ideals together. If you're really not interested in options don't waste your time.

Great book!!!! I have followed and listen to Dr. Fung for some time. Listening to him actually cured my type 2 diabetes when my regular doctor wanted to put me on insulin (which I refused). His guidance and insights have always been great and I have learned so much from both him and the several other ketogenic gurus I follow. Dr. Fung thank you for all you do.
