The Investment Classic, Updated with a New Preface and Afterword
"I've read the book at several stages of my career as it shows the staying power of good down-to-earth wisdoms of true practitioners with skin in the game. This is the central document showing the heuristics that real-life traders use to manage their affairs, how people who do rather than talk have done things. Twenty years from now, it will still be fresh. There is no other like it." --Nassim N. Taleb, former derivatives trader, author of The Black Swan, and professor, NYU-Poly
Praise for the First Edition
"Market Wizards is one of the most fascinating books ever written about Wall Street. A few of the 'Wizards' are my friends--and Jack Schwager has nailed their modus operandi on the head." --Martin W. Zweig, PhD, Editor, The Zweig Forecast
"It is difficult enough to develop a method that works. It then takes experience to believe what your method is telling you. But the toughest task of all is turning analysis into money. If you don't believe it, try it. These guys have it all: a method, the conviction, and the discipline to act decisively time after time, regardless of distractions and pressures. They are heroes of Wall Street, and Jack Schwager's book brings their characters vividly to life." --Robert R. Prechter Jr., Editor, The Elliott Wave Theorist
Featuring interviews with seventeen of the most successful market-beaters, including Bruce Kovner, Richard Dennis, Paul Tudor Jones, Michael Steinhardt, Ed Seykota, Marty Schwartz, and Tom Baldwin, Market Wizards is packed with real-life anecdotes from the trading world. From the electrical engineer from MIT whose computerized trading earned returns of 250,000% over sixteen years to the trader who, after wiping out several times, successfully turned a $30,000 investment into an $80 million fortune, Schwager identifies the factors that define a true Market Wizard.

Even today - over 25 years since I first picked it I refer to it frequently. I have also recommended or bought copies for juniors over the years.
Jack Schwager has written a number of 'Market Wizards' books but this one is still considered the classic.
For anyone interested in trading (or investing) I would recommend going through this book line by line. There are a lot of insights in the book that take a lifetime to appreciate.
If I met Jack I would thank him from the bottom of my heart - it changed my career path etc.
It is structured in such a way that makes it easy to read and analyse. What would have been great is if the author provided a study guide as there are so many lessons in this book I cant keep up.
I also purchased the audible session via amazon because it was on offer. I would recommend reading this book whilst listening to audible because it makes it so much better.
But of course most importantly you get to hear in their own words what approach top traders take to make large amounts of money from trading. The methods of the individuals was actually a lot more diverse than I was expecting and it soon becomes clear that many different paths can be taken.
I've found with some other trading books that the writers are not always top traders themselves and with so much info out there, it can be difficult to find quality advice. With trading books and any informative non-fiction, I would always say check your authors. See if they have the credentials. The traders interviewed in this book certainly do. Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in improving their trading.
