More About the Author
Picking up where "The Disciplined Trader" left off, this book bridges the gap between thinking the market is actually doing something and actually making the trade. It is designed to give readers the insight and understanding they need about themselves and the nature of trading that will earn them constant success.

A little bit repetitive and distractive at times, hence only 4 stars, but I read it in a weekend so it is not to hard going.
Recommended if you are starting to trade or wonder why you are not progressing as you expect.
This book taps into your belief systems, which in turn determine your actions, in a very coherent manner. It is no exaggeration to say that if your trading methodology has a genuine edge, this book could transform you into the owner of you very own casino if you allow it to.
The knowledge the author offers is also applicable to other areas of life including quitting smoking - its all about positively energising the concept that you're a non smoker and de-energising the concept that you are a smoker. Before you turn off condemning that comment as psycho-babble, you should remember, as the author explains, to keep your mind open to receiving information from an objective perspective rather than filtering information according to what you already believe to be true ; ).
To attain the best possible impact on your trading mindset read with an open mind, make notes, re-read, and re-read again as the knowledge the book contains has to sink deep into your personality and character to have the most beneficial effect on your actions in the real life trading arena.
An exceptionally fine book on the most important aspect of trading in which the author selflessly shares his soul in addition to his knowledge. Top marks to Mark Douglas!
So would I recommend this book? Surprisingly, yes.
To those reading it for the first time, I would skip straight to chapter 8 and 11; you can always read through the other chapters if you feel the need. In ch8 he gives a decent summary of the previous chapters and is really all that should have been devoted to those topics in the first place. Chapter 11 is effectively the meat of the book, and is the only place in which a practical solution is offered.
One of the most interesting thoughts comes from Ch11: the description of his method for closing winning trades and explanation of why he does it. It's quite a standard method, but I've never heard it put in that way, and I have to say it's been rather persuasive. It has to do with the fact that most failed trades will at least go some way in your favour before they turn around... I'll leave you to work it out or buy the book to find out.
One other thing, if you don't already have a trading system that gives you an "edge", you'll need one first. Google babypips or piptastic for ideas.
