Market Mind Games: A Radical Psychology of Investing, Trading and Risk by Denise Shull
Aug 21, Terry Koressel rated it it was ok. Denise Shull is a neuroscientist and former trader. Given her background, I was expecting an truly powerful and insightful book. I did learn from the book, but it did not live up to expectations.
Her premise is spot-on: All decisions involve emotions as much as you’d like to divorce yourself from emotions in making trading decisions. This is simply not possible. If this is so, then thoroughly understanding your emotions So far, so good. But then the practical applications simply fell well short for me. Plus the writing style did not hold my interest. Her attempt to weave a fictional story into her non-fiction work like the totally engaging The Goal by Eli Goldratt fell completely flat Dec 30, Deax rated it really liked it.
Mar 11, Yuekun Liu rated it liked it. This is the first time that I learn all decisions require emotion. The research of Antonio Damasio is very impressive. He and his colleagues find that people with sustained brain damage related to the experience of emotion can hardly make even the simples of decisions. The author or she got it from the current research states that we need emotion for vision, for meaning, and for essentially everything.
The link below talks about how neuroscience relates to economics: The book overall is kind of juicy. However, it doesn’t fit my reading style. There are too many chapters and things are cut into pieces. Feb 08, Mark Gazica rated it it was ok. Where to start with this one.
Market Mind Games
First, the book is littered with grammatical and spelling errors. It should go without saying that any piece of writing in this day and age should exist without errors.
Second, the advice given in this book is supposed to be tailored for traders, but it is so generic that it could be applied to any professional seeking to enhance their work output that it seems completely unnecessary that this book was ever even written.
Why do I need to read a book on how to Oh boy. Why do I need to read a book on how to be a better trader if all it tells me is to stay healthy and get enough sleep? And how is this information specific to trading in any way?
Third, the author seems to have a very poor understanding of even basic psychology.
Most of the concepts in this book are poorly explained, and the liberties the author takes are almost completely incoherent. She also argues a thesis that essentially does away with rational logical thinking for the increased value in emotional decision making. Last, this book agmes some type of silly narrative about fictional traders who attend conferences presented by the author herself, which serves as a bridge between the fictional and non-fictional aspects of the book.
Market Mind Games: A Radical Psychology of Investing, Trading and Risk
As a reader, I would not have needed the fictional examples of the non-fictional writing if the author would have just spent ggames time actually explaining her thesis in a non-fictional way, as opposed to trying to relate her unimportant concepts to her non-fictional writing. Don’t waste your time with this stinker. The only reason I didn’t give it one star is because somewhere in the depths of the author’s thesis, there is some merit to the idea she was trying to present which I am actually interested in.
She just did a very poor job of explaining it. May 09, Denis rated it really liked it. This book resonates on one general big idea: The author pushes us to embrace our emotions instead of ruling out emotion by using logic and rational thinking. How do we react in the time of uncertainties, when there are not many information about what is going to happen next and that we have no choice but to act at that moment? Decision is going to be made at that point and we have so few information about it.
How are we going to make a decision and on what basis? I like the au This book resonates on one general big idea: I like the author’s argument that emotion is the basis of human thoughts; it forms the foundation on how we think for the rest of our life and it drnise started from the moment we were born.
As we progress through our life, we absorbed all the feelings that we had felt in the past and forms an unconscious framework that will help in determining on how we would feel for any incident in the future. This book, on the surface gives me the impression that this is going to be some serious read and that the gamfs of the book will be pretty dull and dry.
But the author has take it to another level by presenting it in a very different way, making it entertaining to read and at the same time easier to absorb and understand the content. Because honestly, some information of the book seems to be pretty technical for those who didn’t study psychology. Overall, this book has helped me to see the fact that embracing emotion is not necessarily a bad thing.
All we have to do is to understand that reason behind the feeling that we are feeling. Feb 06, Erick P rated it really liked it. Suprisingly, I had read it too times. Once when I began trading, and then while I was trading. Mindset is just something we have to continually pursuing in this game.
