2.0 out of 5 stars Alas, it really isn't as good as I and II, April 3, 2001

This review is from: Stock Market Wizards: Interviews with America's Top Stock Traders (Hardcover)
I think the first two Market Wizards books are classics, I really like Schwager as a writer, and I really really really wanted this book to be as good. I resisted coming to the same conclusion as the other 2-or-3 star reviewers as long as I could, but you know what? Sadly, they're right. The first Market Wizards book is completely indispensable. The second, it's true, was not as good overall - but half of it was. This book isn't in the same league. The best I can call it is light entertainment, for those of us who find books about the markets entertaining. To Schwager's credit, his writing is consistently clear and readable. (To appreciate this better, take a look at the slapdash Market Wizards knockoff, "The Best: Conversations with Top Traders", which contains a few insights scattered amidst a great deal of repetition and incoherence.) But not only do most of the traders interviewed here not have nearly the track records of the original Market Wizards; they don't seem to have the same substance or depth either. There are no minds here of the calibre of an Ed Seykota or a Jim Rogers, just to name two. (I mean, of course, judging solely by these interviews). Not only that, but several display a distasteful absence of class. (I'm not talking about social class, I'm talking about that elusive quality of graciousness which makes a successful person seem deserving...) Nonetheless, I did enjoy reading several of the interviews, for example those with Fletcher and Galante.
