Take control of risk . . . before it takes control of you
Don't like uncertainty? Doubt makes you nervous? Most people are averse to it, but risk is unavoidable to the serious investor. In this groundbreaking book, Curtis Faith helps you not only form a truce with risk, but actually make it your ally.
One of Chicago's famed Turtle traders, Faith credits his group's unprecedented trading success with its mastery over the psychology of risk.

Only those who can control their fear of risk will move forward in the investing world. This has never been truer than it is in today's topsy-turvy global economy. Read Inside the Mind of the Turtles and never again hide inside your shell in the face of risk.
