here's a book that i think everyone should read, written by someone who really knows something about the mechanics of the markets. not only is he a harvard-trained mathematician (which may or may not help in the markets), he has also completed several of michael covel's courses on trend-following (just kidding ) the most important thing is that it's readable, and the ideas are important. there's also a lot of humor in there. i don't care about nerds, but i want to know how the markets really work. lionwebern is the best person to tell me that. i need to know what he thinks about these issues, to connect the dots, to give me the context for approaching trading as a business.
