"Buried treasure. Or buried truth. That is what Magees book is. It is like finding buried wisdom, the codification of all the non-technical things Magee knew about the market, and one of the books which every investor should read, preferably at the beginning of his career This book can prepare an investor for the mental game of Wall Street, that is, the inner game the investors mind plays with itself as he watches Wall Street whir around. It would be unwise to underestimate the importance of mental attitude and preparation to successful investing and trading. Be assured, the winning tennis player who has great conditioning, wonderful technique, great mechanical skills also possesses something the average tennis player does not have: a different mind and attitude. The same thing is true of effective traders. Through the careful study of and application of this book, in conjunction with The Technical Analysis of Stock Trends, the average investor can become an effective trader" (W.H.C. Bassetti).
