People's lives are full of 'defining moments'. Looking back, they are easy to identify. Some, will be best forgotten and others stand out as being a significant milestone in the journey of life.
Countless books have been written about the defining moments that have shaped the lives of individuals that have gone before. Many have concentrated on the financial implications of those 'calls to action'.
The following URL, new+market+wizards, is a Google.com search that should reveal the book of that title written in 1992 by Jack D. Schwager. This is the sequel to his first best selling book, Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders, written in 1989.
The online bookseller, Amazon.com, provides excerpts from both of these books that are well worth reading by anyone being asked to make a financial commitment. There are also second-hand copies available for purchase at reasonable cost.
I can also recommend reading the first five chapters of a book on Property Investment, due to be published shortly. The author describes the defining moments that lead to him writing the book and are currently being made freely available.
