Not Your Typical Darvis Style Book
on May 24, 2013
I read Nicolas Darvas' "How I Made $2,000,000 . . ." and was so enthralled with his entertaining writing style and story telling I bought his "Las Vegas . . ." book as well. It too was written in the familiar Darvas style to which I was attracted. However, This "Over the Counter Profits" book is a departure from the writing style to which I was attracted. Perhaps it is the technical explanations which are over my head, as well as the fact that his experience comes from 1968 and I have a hard time believing that what he describes in the book still goes on in the market. Of course, after the Bernie Madoff scandal, anything is possible. Darvas eschewed penny stocks/low priced stocks in his first two books, but embraces them in this current book, explaining in the early years of his trading success he did not understand how the OTC worked, but now he does. Anyway, I gave the book 3-stars, not because there is anything inherently wrong with it's message, but because it did not meet my personal expectation, set by the quality, entertainment, and useful knowledge his first two book provided to me.
