Hi Madan,

I have gone thru the suggested readings. Jim’s book is nice & Mark Douglass’s is a master piece. However while reading Enhancing Trader Performance, I had a doubt. There author (at least in first chapter) talks about “cool” Al & “frustrated” Mick and concludes with high performance people are like Mick than like Al who watch every tick without taking a break etc… So this is slightly confusing than previous two books. So does Brett S. talks of different philosophy of extreme hard work necessary for performance over relaxed approach? This makes sense that to succeed we need to work hard but Douglass points out EXACTLY OPPOSITE of this and says that winning in markets is not so much of knowing too many things but proper psychology and taking complete responsibility of everything that we do. Two totally different approaches and both talking on Psychology… Can you clarify?
