Written by one of the CME floor trading legends, Eddie Toppel. When the book was originally published, I would hear stories of floor traders in the SP big contract pit with this book in their jacket pocket.
This book doesn't teach you a trading method. It does teach you in very direct terms why most traders fail in the highly leveraged futures markets. It talks directly to what is going on inside your head when you trade. This is not some theoretical treatise written by a PhD, it is the life lessons from a veteran professional floor trader in the S&P index futures pit.
