From the Back Cover
After nearly 25 years, the turtles come out of their shells.
Way of the Turtle takes a never-before-seen look at the legendary Turtle Traders and the famous experiment that made them millions. Curtis Faith, the most successful member of this elite group, breaks the silence to reveal the rules, timing, risks, rewards, and secrets to his biggest trades and 100 percent annual returns. Sharing behind-the-scenes insights and step-by-step techniques, Faith shows how you can use the Turtle Way to achieve enormous profits-whatever your skill level.
“The most successful turtle was apparently Curtis Faith. Trading records show that Mr. Faith, who was only 19 when he started the program, made about $31.5 million in profits for Mr. Dennis.”-Stanley W. Angrist, The Wall Street Journal

But much more emphasis on being disciplined both in terms of system and psychology.
The methods that are discussed are sound but quite difficult to implement.
However, I suggest that anyone interested in trading take a look at the book.
The reason I was 'far beyond' is that I had already read Curtis Faith's 'Way of the Turtle' several years ago. His book is a must for any really serious trader who wants to make his monies consistently appreciate over time. Faith's excellent book assisted me with my goal to develop an optimization approach for any indicator - a 'robust' approach - meaning that the superb trading results obtained from using the optimized indicator were consistently positive (irrespective of the stock invested in, and irrespective of the market conditions). This sounds like a trader's dream, but it really works.
At this point, I use the approach only for my own trading, and have little desire to sell subscription services to would-be traders. I suspect that many so-called 'entrepreneurs' who sell subscription services to traders prefer to take traders' cash, rather than invest in the markets themselves. It's much easier to sell suggestions to others, rather than risking one's own cash (especially if the suggestions are not backed up by a sound, well-tested system).
Back to Curtis Faith's book: it's full of gems! The gems include "how to determine whether or not you have an 'edge' before participating in a trade" and "how to calculate that edge." There are many other gems. To top it off, the book is also entertaining. Last but not least, this book is one of the few which alert traders to the many hazards involved when trading in the marketplace. Curtis Faith's message: "You must have an edge before you trade." I agree with him.
"Way of the Turtle" is a must-read - already many traders think so, for the sale of Faith's books is quite crisp. There is also a later edition out, which I'm considering purchasing, as well. Thank you, Curtis Faith!
