Publisher's Summary

How did a world-famous dancer with no knowledge of the stock market or of finance in general make $2 million in the stock market in 18 months - starting with only $10,000? Darvas is legendary, and with good reason.

In this new edition: How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market: Now Revised & Updated for the 21st Century, Steve Burns uses his experience to offer explanations as to why the methods are still reliable. Updating a classic book is a monumental task. The basic philosophy of the writer cannot be changed. Steve Burns approaches this work with the eye of a master restorer who looks at a classical painting that is being refurbished. He carefully studied the text to bring Nicolas Darvas' wisdom into the 21st century. Steve Burns illuminates the dramatic changes in the market to show how Nicolas Darvas' principles are more useful now than ever.

When you hear "Nicholas Darvas", take a drink!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is interesting, however the narration trades off between two readers, one of them keeps saying the authors name over and over again. You could take a drink every time you hear "Nicholas Darvis" and be drunk in 5 minutes! The other issue is the sound volume is not balanced between the two, I caught myself raising and lowering volume every time the readers changed.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason McCoy and Ronald Eastwood ?

I would have just used 1 or better normalized or balanced the volume between the two.

Who do you think would benefit most from listening to How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market: Now Revised & Updated for the 21st Century?

A guy did well in the stock market by not micromanaging it. Its a great story, however the best thing you can take from it is let the winners run and dont bet against them. Very few people trade stocks on their own and do well, its a longshot at best. Sure if you put 10k in Amazon in 1997 you would be up 300k or whatever.. however look at barnes and noble, or countless other book stores. How would you have picked out which was best? How would you have known Amazon ventures into so many other things in later years? You dont, so you have to split up your investments.

Cool Story

If this book isn't worth ur time, u must be Warren Buffet. This book was the beginning of the little guy beating Wall Street instead of the other way it usually goes. A different approach to market trading that anyone interested in producing better results than having flat returns in mutual funds and dead stocks. I look forward to hearing this book again.

Hard to listen to

This is almost a waste of money. The narrator keeps repeating quotes over and over. It also only downloaded half the book. It supposed to be an 8 hour read and it barely downloaded 4 hours of the book.

Prefremce the original this version sucks

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I purchased the up to date version jn the hopes of a correlation netween current modern methods and Darvis. To be blunt i must give my first ever critical review because of respect to the hard work the originsl Author put into his book. He was a hard worker a great mind and highly underated today. Although by reviewing his work in this new edition may bring you to light the by far better original version by the man himself.
This version is just incredibly bad as compared to the original author
Akin to painting over a licasso or papering the cistine chapel it is nearly sacreligious and even a rip of ...the only good loint it reminds me how great ghe original was

Has How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market: Now Revised & Updated for the 21st Century put you off other books in this genre?

Yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All three

Any additional comments?

Great Story

The Darvas story is great however I found the extra commentary by Steve Burns to be distracting.
