“You say that you put books out to ignite conversation. Well, I just finished reading Atlas Shrugged today, at your recommendation. What are your thoughts about this great novel, in relation to trend following and trading? I am curious to hear your thoughts. Thanks Michael.”

Ed Seykota first told me to read Atlas 10 years ago–as a condition to our initial conversation! I have since found that so many top traders look to Rand’s work. For example, David Harding also brought up Atlas Shrugged in conversation as a major influence.
