Product description


If one adds Gerald Ashley's innovative thinking to his track record as a successful trader and his wealth of experience in international banking, this book makes compulsive reading. --David Buik, BGC Partners

It's rare to find a good book on trading biases and behavior but Gerald Ashley has written a first-rate book on the subject and the latest edition has been updated marvelously... The last thing I wanted to do this summer was read another finance book but that's precisely what I did when I got Mr. Ashley's book in the mail. I could not put it down--instead of pondering about useless models and 'trading' secrets he dutifully set out to demythologize finance, writing a highly instructive and engaging work full of colorful historical personalities, market anecdotes, and useful lessons that will definitely make you a better trader... Mr. Ashley provides a fresh assessment of the core principles that have ruled finance for decades and plucks the most useful elements to shows us what really drives the market in booms and busts... If you want to mature as a trader this is the book for you. --Max Zeledon, Seeking Alpha
