Quote from BlueTurtle:
I've known a few authors, and they all say, "Of course I leave out the good stuff." That is their "edge," even though if their edge was that good they wouldn't have to write books.
yes, they love and need the fame. but they also do it usually very quickly for money. and they could care less if it works for you, as long as you buy the book.
you will get a good idea about the whole thing, but you are not smart if you think this will really be the holy grail. or even close. or even close to even close. go to the library and find something.
Most of the book/magazines/newspaper writers are just writing for money, they don't even care if they write anything real or good for you, as long as someone buys the thing and let they keep earning money.
But there are few % of writers really know their stuff and share little bit of their wisdom.
For example, I like to read ed seykota FAQ. May be he is not really that smart that very probably the highest return % trader out there? May be he does the online FAQ just to...let more rich people believe in him to let him manage their money?
He just has one book and seem like that is not even a trading book...(I don't have a chance to read that because there is no way I can find that book in my city), he shares how he thinks in his FAQ..why?...may be he just likes to share while he is lonely by himself in his next to lake big house?
Does he even talk about his formula or program? NO. Does his FAQ give people insight how a profitable trading system big picture should be? Yes
Is he one of your author friends? NO.
