This is the true story behind Wall Street legend Richard Dennis, his disciples, the Turtles, and the trading techniques that made them millionaires. What happens when ordinary people are taught a system to make extraordinary money? Richard Dennis made a fortune on Wall Street by investing according to a few simple rules. Convinced that great trading was a skill that could be taught to anyone, he made a bet with his partner and ran a classified ad in the Wall Street Journal looking for novices to train. His recruits, later known as the Turtles, had anything but traditional Wall Street backgrounds; they included a professional blackjack player, a pianist, and a fantasy game designer. For two weeks, Dennis taught them his investment rules and philosophy, and set them loose to start trading, each with a million dollars of his money. By the time the experiment ended, Dennis had made $100,000,000 from his Turtles and created one killer Wall Street legend. In The Complete Turtle Trader, Michael W. Covel, best-selling author of Trend Following and managing editor of TurtleTrader.com, the leading website on the Turtles, tells their riveting story with the first ever on-the-record interviews with individual Turtles. He describes how Dennis interviewed and selected his students, details their education and experiences while working for him, and breaks down the Turtle system and rules in full. He reveals how they made astounding fortunes, and follows their lives from the original experiment to the present day. Some have grown even wealthier than ever, and include some of today´s top hedge fund managers. Equally important are those who passed along their approach to a second generation of Turtles, proving that the Turtles´ system truly is reproducible, and that anyone with the discipline and the desire to succeed can do as well as - or even better than - Wall Street´s top hedge fund wizards. These rules worked - and still work today - for everyone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joel Richards. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/067174/bk_acx0_067174_sample.mp3.

´´Excellent.´´-The Wall Street Journal Since its publication ten years ago, businesspeople, investors, doctors, parents, students, athletes, and musicians at every level have adopted the maxims of Talent Is Overrated to get better at what they´re passionate about. Now this classic has been updated and revised with new research and takeaways to help anyone achieve even greater performance. Why are certain people so incredibly great at what they do? Most of us think we know the answer-but we´re almost always wrong. That´s important, because if we´re wrong on this crucial question, then we have zero chance of getting significantly better at anything we care about. Happily, the real source of great performance is no longer a mystery. Bringing together extensive scientific research, bestselling author Geoff Colvin shows where we go wrong and what actually makes world-class performers so remarkable. It isn´t specific, innate talent, nor is it plain old hard work. It´s a very specific type of work that anyone can do-but most people don´t. What´s more, the principles of great performance apply to virtually any activity that matters to you. Readers worldwide have been inspired by this book´s liberating message: You don´t need a one-in-a-million natural gift. Better performance, and maybe even world-class performance, is closer than you think.
