I had read Douglas's Trading in the Zone before. I had a very high expectation on this one. However, I was very disappointed.
The author emphasized throughout the book the importance of entering the zone, a state of mind that you can neglect fear, greed, P/L, and just trade according to your feeling of the market, though he supplemented that with the need of analysis, hardwork, focus blah blah blah, and that different people have different means to enter the zone, illustrated with examples anonymous. Those might be true stories. However, the author just did not tell the readers how they could do it themselves without the assistance of a coach like the author's good self.
A reviewer of this book wrote that this should be read together with Douglas's Trading in the Zone and Mc Call's The Way of the Warrior Trader. One should read those two excellent books only, but definitely not this.

I personally admire Dr. Kiev's work and contribution to daily psychology. However I would suggest any trader - or any other person, for that matter - to read and apply the ideas in his " Daily Living Strategy". His goal-based approach is what I live on, and I certainly understand the positive comments made by his clients, but I think the reviews are concerning the book + the counselling they took personally from Dr. Kiev. By itself, the book is not complete. It is helpful, and it certainly adresses several important issues, but it doesn't go deep. Also, it is a product of Dr. Kiev's work with the professional traders working in huge trading firms or departments, and as such, addresses the problems and solutions that can be found in such settings. Even the trading methodology Dr. Kiev seems to advocate sounds very institutional: he is talking about how to get real info from analysts that call you up. Well, being a full time trader who strikes on his own, that didn't help me. Again I recommend buyiing his now-classic book, the Daily Living Strategy, and apply it to whatever it is you want to achieve in your life.

There are hundreds of good ideas floating around, just as every trader has thought of hundreds of great winning trades. The problem is in manifesting those ideas, making them work in concrete reality. Ari Kiev's book goes beyond the typical in that it doesn't stop at merely describing those obstacles to becoming a better trader; it pushes into the realm of implementation.
All of us can recall the feeling when everything falls into place, a point made clear from the many relevant interviews that reinforce Dr. Kiev's points. The difficulty--and the strength of this book--is to be consistent in one's effort to maintain that state of mind. There are mny useful tools and exercises offered that will keep traders from unconciously falling back into unproductive habits.
Everyone needs help, especially on the path to becoming an accomplished trader. This book is an essential guide to staying aware and taking action.

Trading in the Zone encompasses the most pertinent aspects of money management such as establishing and constantly resetting one's goals, understanding and incorporating a risk profile and cutting losses in the interest of capital preservation. This book is a must read for anyone looking to learn about the tenets of psychology as they relate to money management.

Depressing book for depressed would be traders. You read this book and you get the impression you have a kind man patting on your back trying to cheer you up: his words bring some immediate confort but he doesn't tell you anything really useful. You are not going to get any closer to understanding the true nature of the trading game and its psychological requirements.
If you are on the brink of suicide get this book. If you just want to achieve a higher level of understanding of the psychological aspects of trading try Mark Douglas, Constance Brown or Ruth Barrons Roosevelt.

This book is perfect for any professional portfolio manager or trader. It atriculates a strategy and a mind set that will help improve decision making with added confidence. Dr. Kiev uses real world case studies of professional traders and portfolio managers overcoming psychological barriers and sucessfully implementing this strategy. I highly recommend this book.
