Publisher's Summary

What separates the world's top traders from the vast majority of unsuccessful investors? Jack Schwager sets out to answer this question in his interviews with superstar money-makers including Bruce Kovner, Richard Dennis, Paul Tudor Jones, Michel Steinhardt, Ed Seykota, Marty Schwartz, Tom Baldwin, and more in Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders.

This classic interview-style audiobook from a financial expert is a must-listen for traders and professional financiers alike, as well as anyone interested in gaining insight into how the world of finance really works.

Filled with anecdotes about market experiences, including the story of a trader who, after wiping out several times, turned $30,000 into $80 million, and an electrical engineer from MIT whose computerized trading has earned returns of 250,000 percent over 16 years.

One of the most insightful, best-selling trading books of all time! 16 interviews - all for one low price!

    "Good, but somewhat dated"

    This book has a lot of good material, but the date is rather misleading: most of these interviews took place in the late 80s and consequently it is somewhat dated. The narrator makes a number of annoying mispronunciations. Also the editing allowed several mistakes and repeated sentences to slip through.

    "Probably my favourite trading book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It's a goldmine of great advice from a wide variety of successful traders who are extremely diverse in their styles and fields, but all have fascinating things to say. as I've learned and grown as a trader I've often found myself thinking "Oh yes that's what so-and-so said people do!"

    Shows it's age in places when talking about pit trading and phone-broking, but the core of the book is about the psychology of a good trader. A real classic.

    "ESSENTIAL"
    What made the experience of listening to Market Wizards the most enjoyable?

    The superb insight and experience of the contents


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Schwager because he knew exactly what questions to ask.


    Which character – as performed by Jack D. Schwager – was your favorite?

    Himself


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

    Well worth the money


    Any additional comments?

    Again I have over 400 books in my audio library and 95% of them are on stocks,finance,investing,economics.
    This is one of the best one that I have bought ie’ the top 1%. I have been studying the stock market for about five years now and a how to book with insights and things a person can actually apply to their trading/investing tool box are very few and far between. This book is pure knowledge/experience of some of the great’s including Jack Schwager himself. For him to share his knowledge and that of traders/inverstors that have inspired him is truely a blessing. If you want your trading/investing to return dividends well worth the expense of this book and beyond this is definetly one that you will want to read/rememebr and apply!!!

    "Excelent book, but the narrator needs to slow down"
    Any additional comments?

    As a professional trader, I have read many books on the subject. Jack Schwager's are amongst the best. .

    I was excited to see that Audible had released a recording of Market Wizards, however the narrator was very difficult to follow. He raced through the book like he was late for something without considering context or punctuation. I spent the first chapter trying to keep up with what he was saying, without being able to enjoy the story.

    I ended up listing the entire book at .5 speed, which is something I have never done before. That didn't take as much getting used to as you might expect, because even at half speed, the tempo wasn’t much slower than it should have been if read normally. I prefer to enjoy my audiobooks at a normal reading speed that allows me to think through what I'm listening to.

    Hedge Fund Market Wizards, which I have also listened to on Audible, did not have this issue.

    "Material from the 1980's"
    What would have made Market Wizards better?

    When I read the info on the Audible Version of this book I thought it was current but the interviews are from the 1980s. Its well written and good basic advice but its way outdated. I don't know how others are rating it like they are

    Story
    "Definitely should be in your top 3 must reads"
    Would you listen to Market Wizards again? Why?

    I most definitely will read it again. This was by far the most educational book on trading I've read. It is also very motivating. I find that this, and Reminiscences of a Stock Operator the most important trading books to read. As you trade, you learn even more lessons by making the same mistakes as these traders have. You get so many life lessons here. The information may be dated but the psychology isn't - even in today's HFT ridden markets.


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

    Each trader has a unique story. Each have earned a unique degree of success. I think the big kicker of this book is that you get so many different trader types and styles, sometimes even contradicting each other, but they are all successful. It goes to show that you need to find a style that suits your personality and there is not really a holy grail or one right way to trade. That alone is motivating and encouraging...You can even pick up tid-bits of traders that are most similar to you. I would definitely get this in audiobook form as it reads like two friends having a conversation throughout. You can tease more out of that than reading. None of the intonation/sarcasm is lost as the narrator himself has personal experience of the interviews. This was probably the best audiobook I've purchased thusfar.


    What about Jack D. Schwager’s performance did you like?

    His ability to convey the personality of his interview subjects. The book sounds like a conversation between two good friends with their vocal variety and intonation keeping you entertained.

    "A wealth of knowledge"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Market Wizards to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, not yet anyway.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was a book of interviews, and I feel I learned a few things from each one.


    Have you listened to any of Jack D. Schwager’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not, but I am considering some of his other work.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I rarely listen for that length of time. This book flowed very well. When I was at the end of the audio, I wanted it to continue.


    Any additional comments?

    I will listen to this audio again. There were times where the information was a bit over my head, being a beginning trader, but that did not discourage me. I would rather have it that way, than the other. Also, this book I am pretty sure was not the "updated" version, which showed every once in a while, but don't let that dissuade you from listening.

    Because these interviewees were some of the best traders of all time, I highly recommend this audio to anyone interested in investing, at any stage of the game.

    "Editing"

    Book was good, but the editing of the audio was the worst I've encountered in a book from audible. The narrator repeats words and sentences and there are a couple times where you hear him make a mistake, stop and then read the line over again. It was as if no one gave it a proof listen before it was released.

    Just when the book started to get a bit dry a Nugget of trading wisdom would be offered up. Most of today's trading rules were pioneered or made standard by these traders.
