From Publishers Weekly
Douglas, president of the seminar firm Trading Behavior Dynamics, focuses on the psychology of successful traders. Instead of offering specific strategies, he advises readers, "The first step on the road...is to understand and completely accept the psychological realities of trading." It may be too abstract for some, but given trading's risks, this book could assist experienced investors willing to engage in self-reflection. (Jan.)

This is the first book review I have ever written, excluding school, because I simply never care to bother with such things but this book really deserved one.
I strongly recommend also listening to the audiobook, which I did, to fully internalize the concepts presented.
As I scoured the text I had epiphany after epiphany as Douglas described the emotions and trading conditions I had just encountered and why they are the natural reactions of most market participants. His teachings of ownership, consistency, perception, expectations and beliefs form the foundation of my trading psyche to this day.
I would recommend this text to all traders as a tool for rationalizing and combating the confusion and frustration that the market applys to us each day. Its a relatively short read but a highly influential one that should help ground you when your trading emotions start to boil over.
