The Complete TurtleTrader: The Legend, The Lessons&hellip by Michael W. Covel
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This book covers the story of the Turtles - a group of non-traders that applied to a newspaper advert from two of Chicago's best traders.
In writing this book, Michael Covel has managed to get interviews with many of the Turtles. He also goes into the story of the Turtles and also talks about the performance of the Turtles (and related traders) and because the book does not focus on any one of these areas it satisfies none well.

This film is tricky to review. For anyone else this would be a 4 star review, but this is the Coen's and somehow you just expect more. The acting is uniformly good (Bardem, Brolin and Jones getting most of the plaudits, but I felt Kelly MacDonald was the stand-out as the innocent dragged into the mess) and the premise and opening are fantastic, but...
As I said, normally I love the Coen's films and this doesn't find it's subject matter too far from their usual fare. The problem I think is two-fold. Firstly it is adapted from a crime-thriller book and for some reason this doesn't leave the Coen brothers enough scope to add their slightly bizarre and off-key humour that made films like… Read more
