OK, I don’t normally make old television references, but in this case I couldn’t help myself. A reader of my Trader FAQs book just sent me this:
“I’m sitting reading your book and I just have to tell you that SO far it’s REALLY good. It’s invaluable really (and even after all this time spent there are things that are being made clearer to me simply by virtue of the fact that they’re being CLEARLY explained by people who KNOW what they’re talking about)!!! It’s ‘Gold’ for a new trader.”
This particular gentleman – who’s been in the market for a while – is from South Africa, so I’m not sure if he’s familiar with Seinfeld. I was never a massive fan myself, but I couldn’t help picturing Banya saying “it’s gold” to Jerry in one episode and chuckling a bit to myself.
In all seriousness, though, the feedback for the FAQ has been fantastic! I heard good things from the contributors as they saw it develop, of course, but it’s a whole other thing when the people who can actually get the most value of the book are so enthusiastic. Another email that came in recently said “The FAQ is a great value because for what is probably less than the hourly wage of most middle class people, you save hours of researching to get the same or better answers.” I was really pumped to read that because it’s EXACTLY the purpose of the book – to save people all the time and effort of having to dig around to find answers to common questions, and to not really know how worthwhile those answers were when they got them.
Anyway, give the Trader FAQs a look. Check out the questions and contributors and take a peak inside.
