Now, Jack Schwager hands you the strategies of the most sought after traders. Through his bestselling Market Wizards books, Schwager has probed the minds of the world's most respected investors, studying their personal traits and learning the secret techniques that have turned them into investment role models. Now a professional investor and successful fund manager in his own right, Schwager shares his own secrets, along with those of his prominent "Wizards."

* The real risk in volatility
* How to develop the habit of "disloyalty"
* Why you MUST learn how to change directions--and how to do it quickly

Plus, the keys to developing discipline, good money management skills, and avoiding the risks inherent in second-guessing your own system--all learned from the Market Wizards themselves and revealed here for you.
