Product description


"A must-read for all would-be traders...while the book's focus is clearly on trading and investing, there is more than enough human interest on offer for the general reader.... Like Schwager's other works...Hedge Fund Market Wizards looks set to become a classic." (Money Week, June 2012) "Offers valuable guidance and timeless insights for both investment professionals and market enthusiasts looking to improve their trading abilities by learning from the best." (trade2win.com, July 2012) "This book is destined to be a classic just like the others by Jack. But the latest goes one step further, these traders aren't just at the top of their game, they have defined it. What can I say? This book was so good it almost made me want to get back into the game again!" ?Paul Wilmott, mathematician and ex-hedge fund manager "Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! Another book about true traders by a true trader. Jack Schwager has become the official author of traderdom for this and future generations. Not only does Hedge Fund Market Wizards deserve a spot in every respectable trader?s book collection, but the entire series should be read annually by both professional and aspiring traders. Timeless wisdom, priceless concepts!" ?Peter Lewis Brandt, Futures Trader, Stableford Asset Management, and Author of Diary of a Professional Commodity Trader "I read Jack Schwager's first Market Wizards book when I was just starting out as in investor more than 20 years ago. It put into brilliant focus the importance of trading psychology and knowing thyself. His latest work is yet another masterpiece. It brings to light new concepts in the world of investing that apply to all investors in today's markets. Anyone who reads this work will immeasurably enrich themselves on many levels because trading is life and life is trading." ?Dr. Chris Kacher, Founder of www.SelfishInvesting.com, and Author of Trade Like an O'Neil Disciple Author Jack Schwager seems to have built his career on the market wizardry of others. Based on this fourth wizard book?interviews with 15 hedge-fund managers who recount their careers and strategies?Schwager's long experience with wizardry has served him well. Readers captivated by the hedge-fund mystique won't be disappointed.  Readers looking for insight into exactly how successful hedge-fund managers achieve success will have plenty to chew over. Schwager attempts to boil down the interviews into 40 "Market Wizard Lessons." Examples: Value investing works. Position size can be more important than entry price. Sometimes it's useful to do nothing.  But the one that may ring truest is this: There is no Holy Grail in trading. What works for one may not work for another, or for you. Fortunately for us, there's a wide enough variety of portraiture in Hedge Fund Market Wizards that at least a few lessons should resonate. ?Barrons.com ?Determining how great traders acquire and use their special skills has been an elusive quest. We have no shortage of cookbooks on how to trade, but only a limited number of books describe the decision processes of those who speculate as a profession. Trader confessionals exist often as testimonies to egos, but few focus on the details of decision making. Material that does successfully capture the essence of how speculators think is the Market Wizards series by Jack D. Schwager?. Even in the interviews of well-known traders, Schwager?s probing questions extract many new insights.? ?FAJ Book Review ?Even in the interviews of well-known traders, Schwager?s probing questions extract many new insights. The Ed Thorp interview, which is the longest, is almost worthy of a book in itself.? ?CFA Institute review

From the Inside Flap


Traders regularly use passages and chapters from Schwager's books as a reference for their own methods and to guide their own trading. His work is an inseparable part of the consciousness and language of trading itself. Schwager's books are essential reading for anyone who trades, wants to trade, or wants to pick a trader.--From the Foreword by Ed Seykota

Jack Schwager is the era's premier chronicler of financial talent. When historians look back at this mad time and wonder who the key players were, they will turn to Schwager's books.
--Robert R. Prechter, Jr., Editor, The Elliott Wave Theorist

Hedge funds have evolved into a market force, and the timing of Hedge Fund Market Wizards is as valuable as the lessons it contains. Jack's book excels in knowledge and insight, rather than specific rules that are short-lived. Among the gems are mistakes are the catalyst for improvement, stable returns are suspicious, and you can't succeed without embracing the risk inherent to your trading style. As you would expect, the book is masterful.
--Perry J. Kaufman, Managing Director, Kaufman Analytics, Ltd., and author of New Trading Systems and Methods

Great traders are almost always fascinating human beings. Jack Schwager is the perfect interviewer, equally adept at eliciting life stories and professional secrets. A must-read.
--William Poundstone, author of Fortune's Formula: The Untold Story of the Scientific Betting System That Beat the Casinos and Wall Street
