"In 2000 and 2001, benchmark U.S. equity indices experienced the worst two-year performance since the bear market of 1973-74. Among the winners in this tumultuous market environment were those that invested with short time horizons rather than those that utilized a rigid buy-and-hold 'one decision' philosophy. Against this backdrop, Kiev, in his familiar pull-no-punches style, delivers an insightful, timely, and pragmatic thesis that focuses on the inner game of trading: psychology, discipline, and the holy grail-timing. A captivating read for those in search of a performance edge."
