Written by a board-certified psychiatrist and the founder of Chicago's best-known brokerage firm, it contains the psychological tools essential to breaking through mental barriers in order to achieve a successful mindset. Examines such common psychological traps as loneliness, poor self-esteem, depression, wishful thinking, self-destructiveness, addiction to playing the markets, revenge and internal conflicts. Packed with anecdotes and case histories, it includes insights drawn from two unusual investor surveys--typical investors versus famous investors and market ``gurus.''
