An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

What made the experience of listening to The Naked Trader the most enjoyable?

This is a great book that has helped me fine tune my trading strategy.There are some real gems in here if you are a keen trader. Robbie is also a successful investor himself so is passing on his knowledge in plain and simple terms. Thoroughly enjoyed it, might even listen to it again.
