3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, Feb. 20 2001
This review is from: Hannibal (Mass Market Paperback)
This book fizzles out at the end. None of the drama between Clarice (the FBI agent) and Hannibal that made "Silence..." famous.
The ending does not live up to the hype which you need to read through 550 pages to get to. Skip the last chapter it is a waste of trees and ink.
Grusome but fizzles at the end.

A Killing on Wall Street: An Investment Mystery

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Time Capsule!!!, Feb. 13 2001
Read this book in about 10 years. It's a great "finance" culture guide for the year 2000. many current event references.
The book isn't great because it's not a intro to finance book that it's tries to be and also not a great mystery novel. It tries to be both but doesn't accomplish either.
The mystery novel aspect is weak and seems to end in a hurry without much explantion or reason. It's almost as though he needed to fill a certain amount of pages and realized he was there and needed to end quickly.
The finance part is weak also. The main character tries to explain finance and the stock market to his young (attractive) assistant. Although it comes off as the annoying person in work(school) who is always trying to proove how smart he/she is.
Entertaining but light. Perhaps a good beach book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Insight, Jan. 30 2001
Great insight into the minds of traders. The best thing about this book is that Schwager talks to a variety of traders, strict fundamentalists through strict technicians and everyone in between.
The chapter on psychology is very interesting. It adds something that most trader books would not.
After he interviews the traders he sums them up into 42 rules. Eventhough every trader is different he boils it down into very simple truths about traders.
This book provides great insight inot the traders mind!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm very disappointed..., Jan. 23 2001
This review is from: The Art of Speculation (Paperback)
When I think of a classic then I think of something that holds true regardless of time. This book is a bit outdated (it was written in 1930). A third of the book is concerning the analysis of mining and railroad companies.
Plus the book was very rudimentary in its writings. Not really a book on speculation as an introductary book for a 1930's investor. In my opinion not worthy of the term "Classic"
If you want a true classic read "Reminences of a Stock Operator" This is a true classic with truths that hold true today as well as 1923 when it was written.

3.0 out of 5 stars long way to go for great ending, Jan. 5 2001
This review is from: Pulse (Mass Market Paperback)
this book had an interesting concept. it was a bit long but the ending was definitely worth the wait. great paperback book to sit an veg out with on vacation. if you don't expect much and have the time, I recommend it. Also recommend the movie "Return to Me" which has a similiar concept.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great, Jan. 4 2001
A bit disappointing compared to his other books. But very well-written with the usual great Lewis humor. Very well researched and interesting although the book really doesn't say much. Entertaining but no real insight. A disappoint for Lewis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Champion Trader!, Dec 28 2000
This book is more of an autobiography than a "How to Trade" book. However, with this said it is a great book about a great trader. Marty tells you what he is thinking at different stages of his career and each is very different. The appendix is great also. It tells of the sources that he uses in his trading plus a breajk-down of his day which is superb. Again not a how to trade book but a great book about a trader.
