Tremendous respect for market opinion
This is a very good follow up to "The market wizards" published a few years before this one. One finds precious lessons from great traders like William Eckhardt, Randy Mc Kay, Victor Sperandeo, Tom Basso, the Ritchies, etc. One could argue that, deliberately or not, many other legendary traders have been left out of this book and its predecessor. Be it as it may, it's probably better to judge this book for what it is and not for what it could have been, and as such, I must say I find it really very interesting.

I can understand some of the criticism by the Amazon reviewers towards some of the traders methods or concepts. Every trader interviewed in this book represents a particular case, whether you agree with their methodology or not. And I guess everyone of them may be prone to criticism. But I won't be so pretentious to criticize any of them. After all, there are many ways to make money, and this is the main reason why these guys do what they do.

One trader that really stands out (in my mind) from the others though is Jeff Yass, and maybe that's because the part I was really interested in was option trading. The guy is a mathematician and a strategist. I was particularly impressed by his new (to me) insights, like "you can learn more about option trading strategy by playing poker than in all the college economics courses combined...the primary object being maximizing your gains and not winning most hands", "your senses deceive you...you always have to double-check the pretty obvious situations, cause there is never any money to be made in the obvious conclusions", "have a great deal of respect for the market opinion, since there's no way you can construct a model that can come close to being as informed as the market itself", "the market's pricing of an item is the best measure of its value", "information doesn't exactly flow perfectly, like they teach you in finance school...frequently the information will show up first in the option market", and many other gems of the like.

All in all a very good book on trading, maybe not as good as the first one, but frankly, what sequel ever is?

Not as good as the original but still worth reading
Jack Schwager is a great author. He asks very intelligent questions and seems to have a deep though un-intuitive knowledge of the futures game. (See the CRT interview, overly analytical people mask intuitive traits). The William Eckhardt interview is incredible and should be re-read many times over. This interview alone is well worth the price of the book. I have one major gripe with the author however. Schwager seemed to have had a serious lapse in judgement by including some of the traders that he did. There is no doubt that all the traders interviewed in the book are of high caliber but some definetly cannot be thought of as "Market Wizards". Who am I talking about? Linda Raschke, Tom Basso, Charles Faulkner maybe even Trader Vic. Who is very underrated? Jeff Yass, the man is the best options player around. Druckenmiller, Trout, and Eckhardt are as good as it gets.These legendary names should not be sullied by the inclusion of the above mentioned traders. Schwager left out some amazing traders, what about the people at Kenzie, Niederhoffer ( I know he blew out), Louis Bacon, John Henry, Willem Kookyer and Grenville Craig? Anyone ever heard of Jullian Robertson? Please Jack, if you ever write Market Wizards 3, try to include all or even some of these people. Not traders that you speak with at "Omega" conferences.

Must Read!
The market wizards books are a must read for all traders. Regardless of what instrument you trade the best way to learn how to trade is to learn how other successful market players did it. This book will help show how the susccessful ones made it work. Add it to your library. You can't got wrong with the price either. it's a win win.
