A Powerful Resource for Success!

It's about time someone addressed the serious problems we are facing everyday - the volatile markets, angry clients, branch managers who push us to the limit, etc. The authors clearly define the problems and obstacles that arise in this fast-paced, high stress business environment and then give you solutions that can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. The book has made me take a step back and examine how my reactions to different situations may be sabatoging my success. This book is a must read for anyone in the financial industry.

Not Just For Wall Street Types

This book is a thoughtful and helpful guide for anyone plagued by negative thoughts and a stressful work environment. It teaches effective techniques for dealing with others, as well as ones' self, to have a more succuessful and happy life. Highly recommended.

Lawyers Have it Rough Too!

Legal dan I am not a broker or trader. In fact I don't work on Wall Street at all. Regardless, my job is extremely stressful and my work hours, extremely long. I am a corporate litigator and was emailed a blurb about this book from one of my buddies on Wall Street. I was having a tough time managing my anger at work when unpredictable things happened during one of my hearings or throughout the course of a case. I would fly off the handle at my colleagues and my wife. The Channeled Rage section of this book helped me gain control over the powerful emotion of anger. Now I no longer feel lethal with my anger. The Bullish Thinking section is also good for helping me focus on the crazy thoughts that often precede my anger and frustration. I guess there is hope for me after all. My message is that Law is just as stressful as Wall Street and anyone working in this job should read this. If you have ever seen the inside of a court room you would see that there are many angry lawyers out there!

A great time for this book to come out!

As a trader at a large hedge fund in NYC, I was glad that this book addressed my concerns and not just those of advisors. Every day I am slammed with tons of data and information that can help me make millions of dollars. I need to be alert, focused, and confident in myself. I can get overwhelmed when I am slumping and I can often be my own worst enemy. Bullish Thinking helped me get a grip on my emotions so that a bad trading day wouldn't turn into a blood bath of a month! I also liked the section on the Hard- E assertiveness training because I often let others, including my wife, tell me what to do. Learning this skill, I have been able to ask for what I want with others and be heard for a change! Thanks for this book.

A Real Picture of Wall Street

In my 14 years as a financial advisor on Wall Street, I've seen almost everything there is to see. Nothing shocks me anymore and I have become weathered by the ups and downs of the markets. I'm good at what I do for others financially, but I'm terrible about helping myself. I work with a guy who actually goes to see Dr. Cass and he recommended this book to me. As jaded and cynical as I have become, I initially thought that psychologists could never understand my daily job description or my stresses. Boy was I wrong! It was scary to read about some of the case studies because it felt like the writers were talking about me and my life! So much so that I actually sat down with my wife to show her the section on the Iceman so she could better understand me. There wasn't a lot of psychobabble and the Bullish Thinking strategies that are offered seemed doable at work and at home. It's rare for me to be impressed with a book, but this one seems to offer me value. Lessons about how to live my life better and how to make more money at the same time. Kind of like a Nirvana! Great read, quick and easy. No BS and these psychologists don't seem fake like so many we hear about.
