5.0 out of 5 stars Trading Must-Have 7 Dec 2009
By R. Dool
This book is clear and concise! It is the definitive guide for anyone who wants to take their trading seriously. There are many trading books out there and to be frank are too long winded. This book brings it all together and illustrates what it takes to be the best in trading. If you are going to stick to a guide I recommend this book 100%. A great read which is also enlightening. Just as it says in the title, these strategies are practical and can be implemented as soon as you read them and they really highlight the psychology of trading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right up there with Mark Douglas 13 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I include a re-read of what I call my Trading Bible - Mark Douglas's Trading in the Zone each year in my trading plan. But having now read Steve's book I am adding it to the list. There's stuff in here which is so simple but for that very reason it seems to be missed in most of the books you can get on trading. To be frank - trading is all about phsycholgy once you get to the heart of it. Its pretty simple right? you can only do 3 things, buy, sell or do nothing. It's how you hold onto the decision when you've made it that makes you a winner or a looser in the long run. Written with Zen like simplicity and essential messaging you will get to see the wood for the trees where some "gurus" leave you in the forest. get it, read it, use it. Bluepowder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading 19 Feb 2011
By PureSymmetry VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a committed trader then this book *will* improve your trading.

Steve distils the necessary components to up your trading game, no matter if you are expert or novice. You will find the steps required to move to a mindset of consistent focus and disciplined, constant execution. I found this book to be information dense and full of practical actionable knowledge.

This is a work book. Read it, and then read it again and again.

Internalise the principles. Action the ideas. Align yourself to move forward to trade with consistency, discipline and focus.

Good Trading.
