highly recommend or all investors. a every grounding book that helps takes emotions out of investment decisions. I found it particularly helpful as a woman to assist me in gaging when cycles had changed and therefore my investment processes needed to change. It has helped me to tame the stresses of day to day media chatter. Investing takes a cool mind and this book brought back perspective for me.

Dave Harder to provide readers and investors with a step-by-step analysis of how to preserve hard-earned capital, especially during the difficult financial periods. Mind, money, and market predict what markets are like to investors and specifically, unprofessional investors. For the authors, markets may not always act logically or rationally as one would expect. The book explains this point so that people can understand the decisions they make. For investment, we cannot afford to run away from the truth. We continue to behave in a certain manner in the market because inwardly, we give ourselves false hope that somewhere, somehow, sometime, the market will change. This is the irrational approach of investing because as we continue living in denial, we forget that our investments are stuck in the market and the more they stay there, the more we cannot afford necessities. Continuing to invest in markets that do not offer returns is as good as developing self-destructive behaviors, compulsions and the devastating consequences of risky trading. The Harder and Dorn (2014) sum up the discussions by providing analyses on why investors should consider their decisions when they reach ‘point of maximum financial opportunity' (p. 142). As markets grow, optimism among investors increase so is the excitement and the need to make more money. In such cases, investors will not stop at anything to ensure that they deep more and more money in the market. However, one should always understand that markets have limits and it is worth stopping at points when one feels that they are becoming impossible to resist.

Great book on some investment strategies! This book provides very simple insights into theories of investing. The way he articulates these methods is clear and backed up by great examples and past life experiences. A decent portion of the book touches on the psychological aspect of investing. In today's world, this is very important to understand as investors get attached to the companies and react emotionally. Even with the current market right now. Investors are willing to put money into a company with very little understanding of what they are doing. In a bull market, the book explains that it is very forgiving. In a bear market, not so much. This book provides you with the essentials of investing!

As someone at the beginning of his investment career, I found the book especially intriguing as it gave a fresh perspective of the market as well as an overview of the dangers, and signs to pick out these dangers before walling into the pit. I appreciated Dave Harder’s perspective in that he doesn’t view the markets as a get rich overnight scheme but instead as a tool to maximize what we have been blessed with. I would recommend this book to the community around me as even if you are not planning to invest your own money in the financial markets it is important to understand how they work, as like it or not they control our daily lives and the society that we are apart of.

Mind, Money, and Markets provides a very helpful understanding for the types of investing strategies, as well as the psychology of humans in the markets. The moving average (MA), even though simple, is a powerful tool investors should know about and use to excel with their investments. The way Harder and Dorn articulate their methods are supported by historic examples and experiences. Nowadays, investors yearn to capitalize in organizations with insufficient knowledge of what they are doing, and this book assists in overcoming these issues and provides the right tools for achieving success.

Great book, provides simplified insights into investment theory and made it very understandable. His analysis is well backed up and explained thoroughly articulating it clearly. Introduced cool ways to look at past trends while explaining how to project them on the future. These strategies seem so obvious when he lays them out but in reality no one seems to be thinking about or talking about them. It really boils down the confusing and busy world of investing to the basics and necessities that you need to know. This combined with fascinating stories and charts and photographs makes for an captivating read. Would definitely recommend if you are interested in getting involved in the investment world.

Dave Harder & Dr. Dorn together write an exceptional amount of information that can be easily consumed by any reader. The power of Dave's life experiences makes understanding important parts of investing easy, and not otherwise overlooked. This book gives the reader more than just helpful strategies and tips, it helps establish an understanding of investing and of the reader themselves. This is a great encouraging read. Highly recommended .
