Paul is a hardened veteran in analyzing trading and investing ideas in financial markets since 1972. Besides being an expert in the field of market analysis, over the last fifteen years Paul has also developed a very distinctive and robust writing style on the subject. His recent book "To Be a Trade" (Tate Publishing 2016) is an excellent example of how he can discuss very complex market ideas, and make them very simple to understand.

A Trader Planet review on the book stated;

…… While many books address one piece of this trading puzzle, Paul's "To Be a Trader" offers comprehensive instruction. Written in an engaging and relatable style, Paul interweaves the stories of his own trading career, which began when he worked on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade as a summer clerk for his father in 1972, with all the key concepts of successful trading.

Paul uses his own experience as a trader, a technical analyst, a system developer and more to lay a clear blueprint for trading success. Giving readers what they need to know about technical analysis, risk management and general market knowledge, Paul eschews the fluff that is found in so many trading books. Having spent time on the trading floor, he speaks the trader's direct, straightforward language to deliver clear, concrete messages all with a healthy dose of humor.

His anecdotes, from stories about his father to the short lived onion futures contract are both hysterical and endearing. But in the end, this book helps you to find a path to trading success. For newer traders looking for inspiration or struggling traders looking to right the ship, "To Be a Trader" is a must read.
