Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Has your personality ever stood in the way of a winning investment decision? Have deeply ingrained assumptions about winning and losing kept your stock market performance below where it should be? In short, do you sabotage yourself? The Inner Game of Investing shows you how to identify your personality quirks and how to build on that knowledge to gain a huge investment advantage. The book explains why "knowing yourself" is vital to stock market practitioners. Enhanced self-knowledge leads to investment decisions that are more focused and based on what you know best. The result? Improved investment performance and less anxiety about your choices. This unique book guides you to your own best personal strategy by showing you what types of stocks fit your individual style. Written in an engaging style by securities analyst and long-time financial columnist Derrick Niederman, The Inner Game of Investing reveals the Seven Stock Market Personalities: The Bargain Hunter, The Visionary, The Contrarian, The Sentimentalist, The Skeptic, The Trader, and The Adventurist. You will be amazed to see how your own psychological predispositions may be blinding you to both habitual mistakes and golden opportunities. Niederman shows you how to apply the knowledge you gain in the form of practical, real-world buy and sell decisions. Niederman’s invaluable insights extend into other aspects of investing, including widely held beliefs about the irrationality and efficiency of the market, the psychological nuances of dealing with market professionals, and the psychology of analyzing stocks. The Inner Game of Investing could change the way you invest and raise your stock market skills to a level you never thought possible.

Written in a witty and engaging style by securities analyst and long-time financial columnist Derrick Niederman, The Inner Game of Investing reveals the Seven Stock Market Personalities: The Bargain Hunter, The Visionary, The Contrarian, The Sentimentalist, The Skeptic, The Trader, and The Adventurist. You will be amazed to see how your own psychological attributes and predispositions interact with the market and how they may be blinding you to both habitual mistakes and golden opportunities.

Niederman's invaluable insights extend into other aspects of investing, including widely held, but often misguided beliefs about the irrationality and efficiency of the market, the psychological nuances of dealing with market professionals, and the general psychology of analyzing stocks.

The Inner Game of Investing shines a light into areas of your personal investment process. This is one book that could change the way you invest and raise your stock market skills to a level you never thought possible.

Synopsis:

Discover Your Own Best Personal Strategy for Building Wealth "Derrick Niedgerman’s The Inner Game of Investing is money in the brokerage account. I highly recommend this book to any investors wanting to improve their investment performance. Knowing your investment personality is the first step to boosting your investment performance. Niederman’s Inner Game of Investing is better than six years of Freudian analysis. From A to V (adventurist to visionary) Niederman’s book made anything but a ‘skeptic’ of me." —Randy Jones, CEO, Worth magazine "How-to-invest books normally put me to sleep, but Derrick Niederman comes at the subject with such freshness and wit that I got hooked—and stayed that way right straight through." —Carol J. Loomis, Board of Editors Fortune magazine "Put down the Wall Street Journal and look in the mirror, says Niederman. The key to successful investing isn’t knowing the p/e ratio of General Motors. It’s knowing yourself. This is fascinating stuff." —John Rothchild, author of The Bear Book and A Fool and His Money
