Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786164891, Audio CD)Financial markets have an impressive history of gains and progress for prudent and judicious investors. But these advances are often interrupted by powerful and sudden setbacks or forward lurches. What is it about investment psychology, and the structure of financial markets, that causes this? How should we react to short term gyrations that can excite or frighten? And what is the role of government regulation in stabilizing financial markets?
Secrets of the Great Investors series is a collection of audio presentations that explain, in understandable language, the strategies and principles that have produced great wealth. History's greatest investors used powerful investing philosophies to produce superior results, and we can learn from their successes and mistakes.

While financial markets sometimes mark time, more often than not they are advancing or correcting. Bull markets eventually are followed by bear interludes; booms; panics; and busts are part of a recurring cycle that marks the course of securities markets. No boom, panic, or bust ever looks exactly like another one, yet most seem to share some attributes-and knowing what these are may help you to better follow and understand financial and economic events. Still, it's important to remember that fully accurate and reliable knowledge of such matters is possible only in retrospect: as Will Rogers once remarked, "never make predictions, especially about the future."
