Quick Reviews

Everything that I have reviewed or am intending to review in one place. The columns are as follows

  • Title – Pretty self explanatory
  • Blog – A link to my review of the book.
  • tl;dr – A short summary of the book. 280 Characters max.
  • Tags – My take on what the book is about
    • Asset class (stocks, bond, FX, Futures, Crypto… etc)
    • Style (Technical, Fundamental)
    • Theme (Trading, Investing, Psychology, Philosophy, History, Entertainment)
    • Rather than giving books a numerical rating, I’ve opted for “Essential” and “Avoid” tags. Essential books are, in my opinion, indispensable. I found books with an “Avoid” tag to be a waste of time. Most books don’t deserve either of these distinctions.
  • Audible – Is the book available on Audible?
