Praise for "Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom":

"While I can't promise you financial freedom, I can promise you a book filled with sound trading advice and lots of ideas you can use to develop your "own" trading methodology. And, if you don't think that's enough, then you really need this book."--Jack Schwager, author of "Market Wizards" and "The New Market Wizards"

"Van's book gets directly to the heart of what it takes to be a successful trader. It's the best book I've read on trading successfully; not fluff or hype like so many others."--Tom Basso, President, Trendstat Capital Management, Inc.

"I've read hundreds of books about trading and this is one of the three best EVER WRITTEN. It's straightforward and to the point. Van clearly cuts through the appeal to wishful thinking, instead stressing psychological preparedness, expectancy, and money management. Moreover, he shows clear methods, with simple entry techniques, to push your equity to the moon. It's a great book!"--Rolf Sigrist, President, Sigrist AG

"Van Tharp's new book...[is] full of new ideas and approaches to developing an individualized trading system; it teaches the principles that are necessary to make you a great trader. The trading public owes Dr. Tharp a debt of gratitude for this insightful masterpiece." -Edward Dobson, President, Traders Press, Inc.

Van Tharp ..."cuts right to the essence of professional trading: how to develop winning attitudes and approaches; how to forget trading for accuracy and trade for expectancy; how to master position sizing. If you intend to trade, you'dbetter know what's in this book."--Ed Seykota, professional trader
