What did you love best about Hedge Fund Market Wizards? I like the question and answer format of the writing. Instead of an overlaid narrative which there was some the questions probed deeper in the theories behind why certain managers made the decisions they did. Also, moving from one subject to the next allowed for you to observe contrasts between the managers. No one style or investment process wlzards favored in the book.

It seemed as the writer wanted to illustrate the fact that there was no one key strategy that lead to success but there was underlying traits in each manager that was common to success.

What other book might you compare Hedge Fund Market Wizards to and why? I would say the book ‘Quants’ by Scott Patterson. It tells a similar story and the characters are the same so you almost feel familar with them. Jack Schwager has an immense talent for interviewing successful people and distilling the lessons for the rest of us.

The narrator helps the listener through the interviews by changing his tone and speaking style; the voice for Jack is mafket, and the voice of the interviewee changes, presumably to match the style of the actual person’s voice.

There are a few awkward mid phrase pauses here and there, but overall great presentation. What I schwwager are the different hedge fund managers interviewed.

I had to google majority of the people which I liked because I got to learn about people and different investment strategies. I didn’t want to the book to end.

It is a must read I think. Initially hated the interview format, but grew to love it, and I will now look for similar books. Super listen I highly recommend it. Even an amateur like me understands the information and ideas in book. Would you listen to Hedge Fund Market Wizards again?


Just like all the Market Wizard books there is much insight that can be gained to help in trading. What did you like best about this story? The actionable ideas, the honesty of traders that had javk losses, and huge wins, and what they learned.

Hedge Fund Market Wizards Audiobook | Jack D. Schwager |

Then in all the other chapters he changed is tone when asking questions wizagds answering so it was more enjoyable. Do the wizards interviewed have skill, or are they just lucky? We’ll never know unless the author does a followup study a couple of decades from now.

In either case, very little information presented in the book will help the average trader. I find it very interesting to hear all these ideas, and it is not just about the trading, when people take things that they love and pursue in life.

Some find it early before they attend to academics and some after. I must say the sooner we find out, the better. The trading styles are for sure all different and very unique.

This found this book easy to listen to, very interesting, exciting, the narrate is great. I’m sure will take some stuff and embed in my life, my trading style, small habits to adjust. As -a retired physician who now trades for a living, I find many of Jack Schwager’s books to be very helpful and motivating.

I think I own and have read them all. That said, although the content of this book is very good and is true to Jack’s exemplary contribution to this field, the narrator will put wizard to sleep. Even after speeding it up to 1. I may need to buy this book, because the Audible version is far to hypnotic to listen to wizarrds falling asleep.

Going to try 1. Maybe The Chipmunks will help put some ‘pep’ in this reading.

The content is good. Buy the audio book. This book gave great insight into great traders. It explained how these hedge fund managers began there careers. And there different styles of trading. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in investing, trading, and hedge funds.

Everyone who wishes to trade needs to experience the market wizards series of books. It may help if you have some experience of trading to understand some of the nitty gritty of the methods discussed however the overall message can be discerned by those with only a little experience.

I will be listening to this book again and again. It was a good listen, certainly one of the better books I have listened to in the investments area. What was one of the most memorable moments of Hedge Fund Market Wizards? There were several good interviews I will likely listen once again. He has done a good job reading the interviews. I liked that he tried to change his voice differently for each interview and when Schwager was talking.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? Given the topic of the book, not really I would love if the older Schwager books would be available also here at audible I have read those long time ago and would certainly listen to them again. I’m a huge fan of the Market Wizards series, and this sticks solidly to the core format: Unfortunately this particularly book is a much harder listen than the others in the series because of the coma-inducing narrator.


The entire book is read in an almost perfectly flat, lifeless monotone. The pace of reading is inexplicably slow, and totally lacks personality and colour.

A very insightful and well written book. It is quite technical in places though and absolutely needs a narrator who himself has some understanding of the content so he knows how to communicate the equations and jargon that appear in the text. Overall I was still able to appreciate and enjoy the book but the poor narration made it a lot harder to get through.

An invaluable source of knowledge and inspiration for all aspiring traders and hedge fund managers! Even if you are not and you are a generally curious person you will still find it interesting. What made the experience of listening to Hedge Fund Market Wizards the most enjoyable? Schwager has done a really awesome job interviewing all these people and he knows how to ask questions. All of the interviewee are tremendously experienced people and they give lots of great advice.

Hedge Fund Market Wizards: How Winning Traders Win

Fascinating and full of little gems. In summary there is no one way and you just have to find your own way. Inspiring to hear other traders stories. Thanks to the author! I have learnt a lot as it shows that dedication and Discipline with get you to reach your goal.

If you could sum up Hedge Fund Market Wizards in three words, what would they be? Very interesting, insightful, perfect. What other book might you compare Hedge Fund Market Wizards to, and why? Exactly what you would expect from the Market Wizards series! Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? This book will give you insight into how top hedge fund managers think, their trials and tribulations.

The learning and development process they all went through. It is amazing to hear how much money they play with. Also interesting part of the book is one trader got fired and lost so much money so many times that you would have thought he would give up a career in the markets. He persisted in his endeavours and now manages a fund worth millions.

Definitely worth a read or listen to, if your into trading. Good narrator but the content was even better. Loved hearing the different trading styles from successful traders.

Joel Greenblatt’s style is close to mine, so to Jamie Mai.

Hedge Fund Market Wizards

Being skeptical fnd this would be full of air and not much content, I was actually quite incorrect. Even for those who know nothing about Hedge Funds, this book can be applied to all aspects of business from a risk management and strategic perspective.
