Publisher's Summary

Douglas uncovers the underlying reasons for lack of consistency and helps traders overcome the ingrained mental habits that cost them money. He takes on the myths of the market and exposes them one by one teaching traders to look beyond random outcomes, to understand the true realities of risk, and to be comfortable with the "probabilities" of market movement that governs all market speculation.

Perspective is everything

About 10/11years ago when I first read this book, I thought (as some did) that book deserves its legendary reputation. Now, after the school of hard knocks and much greater exposure to behavioural science references (namely dealing with how the brain functions, the biases that we all go through, the lack of honed intuition, the complete and utter appreciation of heuristics and the role of ego in trading) - I am greatly surprised that my second read was utterly underwhelming.

Having gone through works of Dan Ariely, van Tharp, Daniel Kahneman, Amos Tversky, Geoff Colvin, Charles Duhigg, Brett Steenbarger, Nassim Taleb and above all Gerd Gigerenzer I can no longer recommend this book to anyone.

If you are a serious student of the markets, you owe it to yourself to delve deeper into behavioral sciences to get framework into why we make decisions the way we make them, and how they fail us as professional traders.

i so wanted this book to retain its proclaimed status as a premier book on trading. Sadly I cannot.

If you have no other reference available to you than there is some justification in reading this. But if you are serious, then a lot better behavioral science books out there that are more complete and less reductionist.

Law of attraction meets trading

i dont often make reviews. but i hope this will help someone on getting this excellent book. if you are into the law of attraction on a deeper level this book is for you if you are struggling at trading. ive had every mentor guide me to this book and i was finally ready.

You create your reality. Same is true in trading. having a sound calm mind is the answer to everything you do. this book doesnt only apply to trading but to your entire life. so happy i got this book!!! Be confident. Thank you Mark Douglas

Most important trading book I own!

I purchased this book several years ago when it was recommended to me. I wish I had read it then. The audible version of the book makes it much easier for me to complete a book cover to cover. This book is outstanding. Deals with the whole mental side of trading and to me that is 90% of trading. Highly recommend it!

Decent book on trading psychology

First 4-5 hours of the book has very good takes on psychology of trading witch is obviously very important. I felt the content on the first half is very valuable.

Towards the end of the book there is bizarre VERY long section to explain effects of bad experience. The book spends an hour or so making a point that could be made in 5-10 minutes. I feels like author ran out of things to say and really stretched the end to add mass to the book.

That aside I feel this is one of the better books on trading and the topic is definitely very important success factor.

Indispensable!

This book should be a requirement for any aspiring or even already established trader! Gone through my first listen and will go through a second one soon as the principles listed in this book are so important!
