Marty Schwartz is a great trader, no doubt about it. Is he a legendary trader? No. Is he a champion trader? Yes. But how many trading contest winners do you know that have gone on to succesfully manage OPM as "Buzzy" likes to refer to it. Contests and real life have nothing in common with each other. How many of us have paper traded with good results only to find ourselves losing in "real-time". Schwartz is too arrogant. He claims to have out-traded George Soros, what nonsense!! George can crush him with a mere bat of an eyelash. Buzzy is a great trader for himself, but when it comes to OPM (other people's money), forget about it. No scalper is going to make money trading in huge size. Unless they are on the floor or they are Monroe Trout. The strategy section in the book is very thin. There are a few interesting tidbits, such as mid-month buying and so on, but nothing that will really help you in your trading. An amusing read overall. However, Schwartz really needs to get over himself, he is a great trader, but he should never make comparisons with himself and the "big boys"; he just ends up looking stupid.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If there are is a better trader let her or him come forward., 10. September 1999

What experience is shared by the former Shah of Iran, Andy Warhol, Jackie O., and Martin Schwartz? Ans: they all died, or in Martin's case nearly died, at NY Hospital. Count your self lucky Martin. I used to be there when you were a patient. Just ask any Cornell Medical student about NY Hospital for more cocktail conversation. This book is engaging, although some of his old strategies like linking after hours trading in T-bonds to S&P futures the next morning no longer hold in 24-hr markets. But of course he had numerous other fast turn around strategies that worked for him. So why did Mr. Schwartz decide to become a hedge fund manager? As clever as he was, Mr. Schwartz should have known better. As far as I know hedge fund managers do not generally outperform the S&P 500. Hedge fund performance only averaged about 16 or 17% in 1995 & 96 (WJS, 16 Nov. 98). In fact nearly all fund managers under perform the S&P for almost any extended period of time. Remember what Gordon Gekko said to Bud Fox in 1987: "Sport why is it that most fund managers cannot even get the total return of the S&P 500"? Probably more true today than it was in 1987---There are only about 40 equity funds that have exceeded the S&P during the past 15 years or so (the S&P has averaged about 17.5 % per yr. since 1980). The story for hedge funds is pretty much like the LTCM story but without quite so much damage. The Greenwich-based fund had done really well for a year or so, but then there was bit of bad timing and some missing leverage on interest rate differences and various derivatives and poof, LTCM exploded like a supernova locking the Danish mortgages and tequila floaters in the risk-assessment PCs and setting off a world-wide financial catastrophe. Everyone lost 90%. Scandal-prone Johnnie Meriwether, who was "trained" at Salomon, was "managing" this hyperbolic casino-floater fund, and Johnnie was paid quite well for loosing everyone's money. In fact he is still being paid huge sums, and my guess is that wealth people are standing in line in Greenwich to invest more when Johnnie is free again. You would think Frank Partnoy of FIASCO would be bristling, esp. since the LTCM scandle involved Nobel laureates and their risk-free Option Pricing Model (derivatives again Frank). Apparently some of those derivatives weren't risk-free after all, and remember OPM also stands for Other People's Money! Not exactly like the Mexican peso being devalued, except no investment bank caused that Frank, but Johnnie is responsible for LTCM. Mr. Schwartz's personal return was evidently way ahead of any of the known hedge fund managers, and he had done that for years, so what was he trying to prove as a Hedge fund manager? As a manager, it necessarily means its no longer your money, and there will be lots of inquiries from shareholders. Goldman Sachs is in the process of making this discovery now.

5.0 von 5 Sternen FUN FUN FUN, 20. Mai 2000

michael capro (river plaza, nj United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
If you've read "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" and enjoyed it, you'll love this book. Most investment books are dry and tedious to read. This book with it's many anecdotes kept me laughing and engaged for a week - I'm a slow reader.
It's Not a "how-to" which everyone wants but will probably never find. It's a true life account of a Market Wizard, his personality and his strugglies on his qwest to beat the markets. It's blunt, direct and very comical.
I've read a lot of books on the market and the same theme for winning runs thru all, hard work and finding your niche.
Read this book and enjoy it. Probably make for a great Robert Dinero movie.
Thanks Buzzy!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lore is always exciting, but..., 28. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Schwartz gives a visceral feel for his trading style and his life, and the book was exciting to read, but, if you are looking for deep insight find it elsewhere. Actually his trading style is very simple - Schwartz is a Zweig clone momentum player. He owes much of his success to a few indicators that are bound to fail one day. But his drive is overpowering, and by that time he'll have new weapons. Schwartz is not worth knowing as a person, and he talks narcissistically of himself, even offering us details of his defecation patterns. If you want a good read don't buy Pit Bull. A far superior book is Neiderhoffer's "The Education of a Speculator".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Autobiography about Trading for a Living, 4. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book was exceptional and I highly recommend it. Rather than viewing the author as arrogant I would rather describe "Buzzy" as confident, driven, skilled, and possibly a bit eccentric; with good reason of course. There is probably no business more psychologically demanding than trading. Mr. Schwartz' outlines the nuts and bolts of trading and how it applies to real life. In addition to being humurous, aspiring investors will find this book insightful: a wondrous read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen REALLY, REALLY, REALLY a must read!, 16. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Having been a broker for several years and having read countless publications on the subject, I had become somewhat blasé about finance-related books. PIT BULL changed all that. From the moment I picked up the book, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!! While the markets were haywire in early January '99, I was in my building's lobby reading chapter-after-chapter of prose which I could only liken to the swings of the market. Marty Schwartz is a story-teller divine!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Regardless of your experience level -- this book is a MUST!!, 9. Juli 1998
This is a book "by" a trader, for traders. It is direct, colorful and very informative about how the market system really works.
Much like the business of trading, Buzzy takes a rough and tumble approach to telling his story. He'll make you laugh, reflect and grow.
While some may be offended by the rough language -- he truly reflected the dynamics of the real world of trading. But then again, trading isn't for everyone either.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yes, he's quite full of himself but..., 26. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
O.K. Marty likes to brag. He seems like the type of guy you wouldn't want to have to sit next to at a dinner. But he has some redeeming qualities: he freely admits his trading mistakes and personal failings. The bottom line is that he's a sharp, hardworking guy who really has made a very good living trading and can help you do the same. This is actually one of the very few truly valuable books in this field.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Reading...., 11. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The book was excellent reading with some great stories. The author does a terrific job explaining the trials and tribulations of real life trading. If everything he said in this book is true, he has had a hell of a life. Buy the book and read it, you'll laugh your a#@ off, and you might also learn something. Happy reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a fun book!, 27. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
THe author just told his story (and what a great story it was). He just told us what he did and how it turned out. No claims that his way was the best way. No claim that everyone elses method stink. Just letting us know what worked (very well I must add) for him.
Take a day and read this book.
