About the book
Brett Steenbarger discusses how a trader can make use of his assets and maximize it in trading. He recounts how some personal and monetary assets might not have been realized by the trader, which can be used to better a trading career.
Steenbarger addresses each problem a trader might encounter in trading and discusses how it can be solved. He begins with identifying the problem, choosing an approach, and finding the solutions to it. These are all written in a conversational tone, like a personal consultation to a trading expert.
Steenbarger uses his background in trading and psychology to write a book that helps readers identify the right trading decisions and the right mentality to begin trading. He shows readers how self-observation can help traders identify the right approach by observing their approach first.
The book is more than a finance guide that concentrates on trading because it also delves into the psychology of a trader. It is more of a self-help book, because not only does it educate readers about trading—it also tells readers to look into themselves and how they approach trading.
