Mark Douglas compares a great trader to a world-class athlete: Both have honed their skills, reflexes, instincts and wills to a fine edge. Both have reached the point at which a winning performance is an automatic, utterly unconscious process – that’s when they are operating in the zone. To reach the zone, Douglas contends, traders must impose mental self-discipline and adhere to a consistently strict system. Would-be investors and tyro traders will value this enlightening text for its underlying message that great traders are made, not born.

20 hours agoHello, and thank you for your comment.
Our abstract writers summarize books into a concise format that is true to the original work and conveys its essential information. In doing so, they often must choose to include some topics over others, and two different writers may very well select different aspects of a book to cover in an abstract. On reviewing this abstract and the book, I have added some of the topics to which you refer in your email. Thank you again for bringing your concern to our attention.
