From the Author
One of the most gratifying things an author of a how-to-do-it technical manual can receive is positive feedback from readers. Since Dynamic Trading was released in late 1997, I have received hundreds of letters, emails, faxes and phone calls from Dynamic Trader readers who have dramatically increased their trading results after reading and applying the strategies taught in Dynamic Trading. I have been trading, analyzing markets and teaching trading for the financial and commodity markets since 1986. I spent most of two years preparing the material in Dynamic Trading to be a logical, step-by-step guide to my approach to technical analysis and trading strategies. I'm sure you will learn something very valuable from Dynamic Trading and I look forward to hearing about your success. Robert C.

Freakonomics

FREAKONOMICS: A ROGUE ECONOMIST EXPLORES THE HIDEN SIDE OF EVERYTHING    (Hardcover) by Steven D. Levitt (Author), Stephen J. Dubner (Author)  ISBN-10: 0061234001   ISBN-13: 978-0061234002  Rating

Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? How did the legalization of abortion affect the rate of violent crime?

These may not sound like typical questions for an econo-mist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing—and whose conclusions turn conventional wisdom on its head.

Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They usually begin with a mountain of data and a simple question. Some of these questions concern life-and-death issues; others have an admittedly freakish quality. Thus the new field of study contained in this book: freakonomics.

Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" (whose weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad" (that "the poor and the middle class work for money," but "the rich have money work for them").

Rich people have a different mindset about money and don't just invest passively in the stock market. They certainly don't work for other people. They control their money more intensely by starting businesses and buying real estate, and then managing their assets with tried-and-true business principles. More than a how-to audio, this program lays out the life and money decisions all individuals make, consciously or not, and provides just enough supporting details to make the issues crystal clear and provocative.

WARREN BUFFETT WAY: By Robert Hagstrom. ISBN 0-471-04460-1. Rating:

From Publishers Weekly
Starting with $10,000 in 1956 and today worth some $8.5 billion, with significant holdings in Coca-Cola, Capital Cities/ ABC and the Washington Post Company, Omaha, Nebr.-based Buffet is a major player on Wall Street. Financial consultant Hagstrom, who did not interview his subject but obtained permission to quote from his Berkshire Hathaway annual reports, here outlines Buffet's iconoclastic tenets for investing. Unlike many entrepreneurs who take over companies to sell them off in bits, Buffet buys and holds. He rejects the "efficient market theory"; he doesn't worry about the stock market; and he buys a business, not a stock. He manages with a small staff, no computers and a "hands off" strategy. Learning his secrets here, now the rest of us can do a Buffet? Illustrations. Fortune Book Club dual main selection.
