Editorial Reviews Review

Newcomers to Jack Schwager's series on top traders, as well as fervent fans of his first two entries Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards, will find that Stock Market Wizards offers another revealing look at a wide spectrum of trading styles through the eyes of 15 extraordinarily successful individuals. Transcripts of incisive Q&A sessions between Schwager and traders--including Michael Lauer, Dana Galante, Alphonse "Buddy" Fletcher Jr., and Claudio Guazzoni--examine the ways each approaches their specialty, whether it be value stocks, mutual funds, short selling, options trading, or other market niches. After brief but interesting introductions that place the subjects' trading practices into perspective, Schwager coaxes from them penetrating observations on setting goals, finding opportunities, learning from mistakes, and operating on a day-to-day basis. While some participants refuse to divulge proprietary practices, and Anthony admits that many traders' activities hold little relevance to individual investors, the basic doctrines nonetheless contain nuggets of wisdom that can be applied by many nonprofessionals. And, in the final "Wizard Lessons" chapter, Schwager details the 65 overarching principles (such as Trade Your Personality, Be Willing to Take a Loss, and The Importance of Setting Goals) he culled from these extensive conversations. --Howard Rothman --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.


In 1989, professional futures trader Schwager wrote theelectrifying Market Wizards, featuring incisive interviews withsome of the world's most successful traders, discussion of a widevariety of techniques and markets, and a detailed chronicle ofvarious traders' track records. It quickly became a bestseller.Five years later, Schwager published The New Market Wizards, lessdetailed and with more generic interviews. Now, six years after,the third installment continues this unfortunate trend. Thesubjects of Schwager's new interviews are less than impressive, andhis questions have gone soft. To make matters worse, subjects wereallowed to amend their words later, resulting in many lifeless,boilerplate responses. Instead of analyzing specific tradingdecisions, theories or track records, subjects spend most of theinterviews talking about their childhoods or disparaging ex-bossesand co-workers. Even this dirt fails to engage the reader, sinceSchwager has changed the names of the maligned parties. Only theauthor's brief, energetic commentaries on the interviews displaythe insight of Schwager's earlier work. Inexperienced traders maybenefit from some of the platitudes in these interviews, butexperienced traders already know to cut their losses. (Jan. 31)Forecast: Bolstered by an author tour (with guest appearances bysome of the "wizards") to New York City, Chicago and Boston and asyndicated radio feature, Schwager's third book may get someinitial sales from fans of Market Wizards and those looking formore up-to-date trading information. Poor reviews andword-of-mouth, however, probably will hurt this book's sales, asthey did the previous sequel. Copyright 2000 Cahners BusinessInformation. —Publishers Weekly

Schwager (Market Wizards, New Market Wizards) interviews 15 toptraders, attempting to cull their secrets in order to explain theirwinning methodologies. It's not a terribly original approach, andmany of the questions and answers sound remarkably alike. Whilenone of the interviewees is as recognizable as Fidelity's PeterLynch, all have produced impressive returns for their investors.Many share characteristics that helped shape their tradingphilosophies: becoming interested in the stock market through theirfathers, experiencing numerous failures in early trading but nevergiving up, and developing a strong work ethic and self-confidence.Discipline, according to the author, is the one trait that all ofhis subjects have in common, enabling them to ride out theturbulence of the stock market each day. The book concludes with alist of 65 wizard lessons. One of the more insightful tradersdescribed himself and his colleagues as "detectives. We are tryingto find out information that is not widely dispersed and then putall the pieces together to get an edge." Reading this book mighthelp readers develop their own edge in investing. Appropriate forlarger public libraries.--Richard Drezen, Washington Post NewsResearch, New York City Bureau Copyright 2000 Cahners BusinessInformation.—Library Journal
