Quick-Scan: The Winning Edge
The subtitle, How to Use Your Personal Psychological Power to Succeed in Trading and Investing, clearly gives the direction of this work. Both Jake Bernstein and Adrienne Laris Toghraie were educated in the field of psychology; Bernstein has gone on to become a well-known futures trader, seminar speaker and prolific author, while Toghraie has stayed out of the markets as a trader but concentrates her practice on those who are in the business of trading. Even if their names were not at the beginning of the chapters each wrote, it would not be difficult to ascertain who wrote which. Bernstein's chapters cover subjects such as the rules for traders, trading the news, losses, action and overcoming trading barriers, while Toghraie's chapters cover topics such as self-sabotage, emotional volatility, trust, courage and the whole-brain trader.
