The Little Book of Market Wizards: Lessons from th&hellip by Jack D. Schwager
4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Welcome Book, 11 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A compact book distilling nuggets of wisdom, experience and insights that have appeared in the Market Wizards series of books by Jack Schwager. To my mind, and judged in the context of what I need for my own activities, I would say this book is a handy reference to dip into, to remind me of what I've forgotten, to reinforce what I know, and to tell me something new. Reading it was an act of clarification.

The chapters cover various psychological elements involved in trading (and applicable to trading virtually anything: shares, foreign exchange, second-hand cars or tat down a boot sale). The layout is logical and simple. And straight to the point, which apart from the content, is… Read more

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Granada, Spain. A tailor who is a cannibal. But not any old cannibal. He is particular about his choice of cuts. Not any old human will do.

The method could have easily gone wrong in which case the film would have only lasted mere minutes. As it is we have to wait about eleven minutes before the first subtitles appear.

New Apocrypha: Guide to Strange Sciences and Occul&hellip by John Thomas Sladek
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 4 July 2014
Cuts through the nonsense beliefs, fads, cults and craziness of the late 60s and early 70s like a knife through butter. UFOs, hollow earth, ice universe, perpetual motion machines, religious cults and doctrines, alien abductions, Loch Ness monster, the Yeti, spiritualism, pyramid maths, end of the world, predictions, the list goes on and on. Excellent stuff, well-researched and written, and at times most amusing. Be good if someone did a 21st C follow-up to this book. Goes well with Patrick Moore's 'Can You Speak Venusian?' Should be required reading for all those who have even a mild interest in fringe elements.
