PDF

I have not finished the book but I noticed many people cannot find the PDF doc so I decided to explain how to get it. On a computer when you go into audible account; then go to library it will be in your library. From there you should be able to download it.

Best One Stop Summary of Trading Life

This book is the finest of the 37 trading books I've accumulated on Audible. It covers the topics which really matter for successful trading. I enjoyed listening to it, even with 20 years trading markets! I'd recommend to anyone getting started or has less than 5 years trading for a living.

Big Bang For Your Buck

Audiobook along with the accompanying 180 page PDF helped me learn and apply to Think or Swim as I learned.

Easy to understand. Highly recommend.

Haven't finished the book yet

This review is to help you find the pdf. I haven't found a way to locate pdfs on the app. I've only been able to get them from the website on a desktop or in desktop mode from the phone. Go to your library and on the right side of your purchased ideas will be the accompanied pdf

Best with Immersive Reading

I listened to part one of this book and found myself constantly rewinding so that one nugget of information after another could be filed away. When I got to part II and all the setups, I stopped listening because I was wasting the information and my time. I tried using the pdf, but still was looking for more. I finally bought the kindle version of the book and then read and listened each morning on while I was on the treadmill. This was absolutely the right way to read and learn this book. For one I kept almost complete focus on the book and really could absorb the information. At first I had seen the repetitive narrative behind each type of setup as filler, but the repetition prevented the need for rewinding but more than that the multitude of setups helped me not only understand, but they also clicked. I saw the underlying price triggers, could look at my own charts and see the setups. This book is almost as fact intensive as a dictionary…sure there are some words you know, but others you don’t. I have bought very few books that are this valuable…and in that respect buying the kindle version to boot is a no brainer.
This book is neither filled with gimmicks or bravado, in fact the setups include some losing trades. This book took longer to read than most because I was having a trading psychology problem in my own day trading so when the book recommended Letting Go, The Four Agreements and Turning Pro (which led to reading the War of Art) - I read them all. I also have the surrender excitement and trading in the zone on deck to read next.
Rarely to I give a non-fiction author this level of credibility. Sure if David Baldacci writes a book, I will most likely read it, but I have read a great deal of non-fiction books few have secured a high degree of trust as this book did in just a few chapters. The honesty combined with experience, success and humility make this book an absolute must. I know that I will re-read this book again. Likewise, I have received a great deal of benefit from the “detour reading” based on his recommendation. It’s the style of humble confidence that makes me want to keep reading, and in some ways aspire to emulate. I guess the quote that he includes by Paul Tudor Jones sums up my feeling “Don’t be a hero. Don’t have an ego. Always question yourself and your ability. Don’t ever feel that you are very good. The second that you do, you are dead.”
Being a trader is so much more complicated than the youtubers Lamborghini and mansions…I completely recommend this book as well as all the books the author recommends.

One of the better trading books

This book has something for everyone. For new traders it will give the start of a system to follow and an idea of how to manage risk. For intermediate and advanced traders, there are so many real world examples and nuggets of great information. Do yourself a favor and pick this book up. The accompanying pdf contains 180 pages and honestly the whole book felt like a true textbook or even a class because of it.

Great book but I'm returning it.

I'm returning this not because of the content but because of my listening method. I tend to listen audio books while walking the dogs or driving. This book comes with a 185 page PDF of the charts. I figured that a PDF would be included, but I did not fathom one so large. I cannot refer to them when listening in the manner that I do. If I were someone who listened on my laptop with the PDF file open, it would work fine. So it's a classic "it's not you, it's me" reason for the split. I will buy the actual book, so the author will still benefit. If you can listen and look at the PDF at the same time, then by all means, buy this in audiobook form.
