    "life changing indeed"

    there are two kinds of people who will read this book. people who are in the finance industry hoping to keep up with the Jones and people who are curious about finance but live life in another profession. For the former, this book is a good addition to the series and may provide many interesting tidbits for them to incorporate into their own strategies. For the latter, this book is down right dangerous and subversive and may very well be the beginning of the end of your current career.

    "Great content with really bad narration"
    Would you try another book from Jack D. Schwager and/or Clinton Wade?

    Schwager is great, and I've listened to all his other market wizards books and loved them. this one is still worth the listen, but the narration is really bad.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator is so flat - he sounds bored. And he doesn't seem to know much about the subject area, so he mispronounces words that any basic amateur trader knows. Unlike the narrators of the other Market Wizards books, he makes no effort to use his voice to distinguish between the interviewer and the traders answering questions - it's confusing. Finally, he just flubs some sentences - dropping or reversing workds in some pretty obvious ways. I hate to be so harsh, but I paid money for this, and it's just awful.

    "fabulous for anyone interested in the market"

    i recommend some background before this one though because it gets a bit technical. listen to other market wizard books 1st perhaps. they are all good.

    "Phenomenal"

    Schwager inspires and informs again - and has found his best reader yet in Clinton Wade.

    "Information"

    What I like are the different hedge fund managers interviewed. I had to google majority of the people which I liked because I got to learn about people and different investment strategies.

    What I dislike: I didn't want to the book to end.

    It is a must read I think.

    "Excellent"

    Really awesome. Many different views. I play it and replay it so the lessons go in.
    Also the narrator is surprisingly good. He uses slightly different voices for the different interviews, but it isn't annoying, but helpful.
    Mostly important for people who are pretty serious about markets.

    "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.

    "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.
