  • Para ser sincero eu esperava mais um livro muito comentado e respeitado entre os pequenos investidores Ele traz alguns pontos muito interessantes para reflex o, mas em compensa o, discordo fortemente de outros De qualquer forma o livro ajuda a refletir e repensar algumas m ximas respeito do mercado Vale a leitura, um livro curtinho e bem escrito.


  • Of course, everyone wants to get rich Who doesn t This book contains a bunch of axioms or maxims on risk management aka speculation I first read this book 17 years ago In my 17 years of experience as an investor and casual punter, I ve relied on books, experience, and several sleepless nights to get me to where I am today I read this book again I can say I m glad I read it before starting out as an investor And I m glad I read it again You bet I will read it again.For anyone starting out in the [...]


  • A book based on a flimsy premise and hence, appealing to the masses.Its a very engaging writing style and full of lessons axioms for how to grow wealth and blah blah.It is for a novice trader or investor who invests without much diligence.Stuff about not diversifying too much, no charting, how to bet heavily but not too heavily, etc.


  • Good to brush up on the basics of risk taking and avoidance, role of luck vs skill, and a few other principles Though I might not agree with all the axioms, but definitely a good read.


  • There are some sound points, but mostly many ideas are wrong and could be risky indeed if following them At the start, the book argues there is no difference in investment and speculation and gamble which I have to fundamentally disagree Investment is about managing your risk Speculation and gamble is about playing luck When the author mixes the two, investment is like gamble.


  • Mesmo sendo um livro curto, demora se mais a fixar a id ia aprendida, mesmo sendo de f cil entendimento Ajuda nos a esquecer v rios dogmas e falsas verdades em que acreditamos sobre o mercado de a es e futuros.



  • Abre a mente de muita gente, mas bom ficar esperto, pois se quer ganhar dinheiro especulando, arriscar se mais, e pode ficar tanto milion rio quanto totalmente pobre.


  • Impressively enlightening But some Axioms could be misinterpreted if the reader lacks some experience and other readings to build a base.


  • Livro essencial para qualquer investidor Alguns pontos podem ser mal interpretados por investidores pouco experientes, de forma que talvez seja interessante o leitor anotar os axiomas maiores e menores e revisit los periodicamente para ver como sua interpreta o dos axiomas mudam de acordo com seu tempo de investidor e de acordo com outras leituras que o investidor fa a com o tempo.


  • Unmissable Simple to understand and follow.Unmissable Simple to understand and follow.The major and minor Axioms can be collected at one place and reviewed everyday for reinforcement.


  • These are fundamental principals that will help your greatly, no matter where you are, despite your position in life A quick read This books ratio of knowledge time spent is huge.



  • iconoclastic investment ideas Most of them go against the conventional wisdom Has to be taken with a pinch of salt And if you are in hurry, you can skip the case studies associated with axioms




  • There are don ts than dos The book is about what won t help intuition, hope, patterning, religion and occult, following majority opinions, stubbornness, long range planning, etc There is a lot of psychological study along with detailed examples of failed fortunes and heavy losses Though what not to do is also important advice, it kind of becomes a source of discouragement for beginners like me who have just but ventured into the world of investment Only a few axioms like playing for meaningful [...]


  • Common sense rules to speculatingThis is an excellent book for anyone who is serious about investing or to put it accurately, speculating This is my second read.


  • Despite having studied Probability as a Quantitative Science formally, there was always the qualitative aspect to it that intrigued me This book formally paraphrased my thoughts about the qualitative nature of probability and how grasping it can yield dividends to your financial life and otherwise Every investor or speculator the distinction between the two has been treated rather harshly in this book relies on this qualitative grasp of the odds It is an art of thinking, or a state of mind, to b [...]


  • Max Gunther was the sun of a Swiss original speculator who devised the Axioms who has made his first capital gain at the age of 13 Max Gunther writes the book in a very engaging way that is also easy to read and, realistic The Axioms are not the traditional wisdom of investment, they are the advises of Swiss who become rich investing This makes the book much realistic because there are example of people who began with nothing, and now they have fortunes just by investing, managing, risking and, [...]



  • Ugh A acquaintance of mine, recommended this book I was so embarrassed that I read it that I almost didn t enter it in to , however I believe it is my duty to warn potential readers.This is the least scientific book on risk taking I have ever read It s full of hubris and trite bits of simple nonsense built up to look like sound investment advice I ve been a trader for years, this book doesn t come close to touching on anything meaningful with respect to trading.That s all I m not going to waste [...]


  • This is an excellent book on the practice of speculation While the subject matter of this book is easily verified by resort to common experience, I have not seen a great deal of it elsewhere, or, to be accurate, I have seen the opposite advice elsewhere For example, the very beginning of the book discusses the relationship between risk and worry, and gets into why a bit of worry is actually a positive thing as opposed to a negative.


  • Recommended by Dr Michael Leongeasy to read talking about greed, fear, hope, intuition and stubborness Excellent first book for those looking to try traing and good for fundamental investors to undertand.


  • Linguagem informal, aborda muito mais aspectos da psicologia e atitudes relacionada a especula es financeiras e tomada de risco do que quest es t cnicas ou mais pr ticas do mercado.De qualquer forma, vale a leitura.


  • A sincere talk about risks Great warnings about common behavior when investing or speculating as the author prefers.A must reading for people who fear risks and for those that need to manage the risks.


  • Good stuff on what to do to control risks.Explains why speculation is not a dirty word.Debunks diversification, claiming it usually leads to mediocre returns.



  • Makes sense so much sense I got the feeling it was all obvious Worth the compilation, but not innovative or surprising concepts.
