Way of the Tutle

I flipped through the first couple of pages of this book at B&N recently and it's a very interesting book about a secret training program that trained some of the finest traders. It's excellent book to read about the mentality of trading.

I skimmed through the book. I think it's more practical if you're a trader. Toward the end of the book the author dived into technical analysis, how to measure if your strategy is working or not, back-testing, etc. He also describes his method, the turtle's way, that made him a very successful trader.

Andy, the book is at my brother's place now...let me know if you want to read it and I'll get it back.
