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?

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.

What happens when a young Wall Street investment banker spends a small fortune to have lunch with Warren Buffett? He becomes a real value investor. In this fascinating inside story, Guy Spier details his career from Harvard MBA to hedge fund manager. But the path was not so straightforward. Spier reveals his transformation from a Gordon Gekko wannabe, driven by greed, to a sophisticated investor who enjoys success without selling his soul to the highest bidder.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Education of a Value Investor to be better than the print version?

Yes, as this is easy to listen in a car, while gardening etc.

Have you listened to any of Malk Williams’s other performances? How does this one compare?

no, but the performance was OK

Any additional comments?

This book is what the title suggests - the author talks about his life story how he came out of first class universities, got burnt in an investment bank and started his hedge fund. To a great extent it is about the people inspired him (such as Warren Buffet) as a role model in investment and life.

Personally I was looking for a book on value investment - the book did not offer much in that subject.

Mikael Blomkvist is contacted by renowned scientist Professor Balder. Fearing for his life, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Lisbeth Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters that will soon bring terror to the streets of Stockholm, the Millennium team....

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl in the Spider's Web to be better than the print version?

The actor did an excellent job reading, enjoyed listening it. For my time schedule the audio suits much better as I have time to listen in the car or while doing the garden, however because of the excellent performance, I recommend this to anyone. I think he is also easy to follow for non-native listeners, like myself.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a continuation of the original series, with the same characters. I was reading the first 3 books long time ago, but the book landed me instantly back in Sweden where those books left me...

Have you listened to any of Saul Reichlin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not yet, but will for sure
