“…a welcome addition to Kiev’s other ground breaking trading books…one that experienced and novice traders will greatly benefit from.” (Futures Magazine, August 2008)
“One of the most fascinating aspects of most of Mr. Kiev’s books is how attuned he is to the trading profession. His books — and this one is no exception — rely heavily on case studies and interviews with traders. Once could guess that the author is a trader himself based on the technical trading advise he gives his patients. … Mr. Kiev always returns to the same fundamental theme. A trader cannot eliminate stress, but he can learn to cope with it. In fact, mastering stress is a requirement for success because the biggest mistakes are caused by stress and mismanaged emotions.” (Accredited Investor journal)
