From a reader:
“Dear Mr. Covel: Thanks for writing such a great book. I just finished reading it. You went in a completely different direction than I thought from the book’s beginning.”
Thanks! Where did you think it was going? 🙂
“i thought you would simply write about the experiment, inclusive of systematic trading blather. However, from the detailed outline of Mr. Dennis’ nondescript beginnings (I am a 1990 graduate of Brother Rice H.S. the ‘brother’ school to St. Laurence and our main football rival), to the inter-office disparity between the Turtles, to the chronicle of the post-experiment Turtle successes and failures; this book was a truly fascinating read. Equally important to me was the unique way you approached the psychological aspect of trading throughout the book. Without dedicating a section to an expert giving a dissertation on the ‘mindset of traders’, you did one better by including real-life hurdles they were all faced with and how they handled them. As an equities day trader going it alone with nothing but prayer, books I can get and my charts, this book inspired and challenged me. Thanks again!”
Thanks again. I feel lucky to have been the biographer of the story.
