    "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.

    "Great audiobook for anyone interested in trading"

    Jack Schwager has an immense talent for interviewing successful people and distilling the lessons for the rest of us. Excellent choice of traders, Breadth of trading styles, and topics/questions - truly something for everyone.

    The narrator helps the listener through the interviews by changing his tone and speaking style; the voice for Jack is consistent, and the voice of the interviewee changes, presumably to match the style of the actual person's voice. There are a few awkward mid phrase pauses here and there, but overall great presentation.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Good, as expected from Schwager"
    Where does Hedge Fund Market Wizards rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a good listen, certainly one of the better books I have listened to in the investments area.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hedge Fund Market Wizards?

    There were several good interviews I will likely listen once again.


    What about Clinton Wade’s performance did you like?

    He has done a good job reading the interviews. I liked that he tried to change his voice differently for each interview and when Schwager was talking.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Given the topic of the book, not really...


    Any additional comments?

    I would love if the older Schwager books would be available also here at audible...
    I have read those long time ago and would certainly listen to them again.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of the Market Wizards series, and this sticks solidly to the core format: fascinating interviews with industry greats, presented and clearly summarized with a clear intention of making you a savvier trader. Loved the content.

    Unfortunately this particularly book is a much harder listen than the others in the series because of the coma-inducing narrator. The entire book is read in an almost perfectly flat, lifeless monotone. The pace of reading is inexplicably slow, and totally lacks personality and colour. Real shame.

    "Great book, wrong narrator"

    A very insightful and well written book. It is quite technical in places though and absolutely needs a narrator who himself has some understanding of the content so he knows how to communicate the equations and jargon that appear in the text. Overall I was still able to appreciate and enjoy the book but the poor narration made it a lot harder to get through.

    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.
