"Mr. Jankovsky′s The Art of the Trade is a fascinating account of trading futures and options from his perspective as a professional in the business. The harsh realities of the brokerage business he describes are sobering, if not frightening, to retail traders. Though some of his points are controversial, Jankovsky′s emphasis on the necessity of self–study in obtaining consistent trading profits and his conclusion that so many people fail in the markets because they refuse to discover what market reality is and adapt to it make this book an important contribution to trading literature."
BILL KRAFT, author, Trade Your Way to Wealth: Earn Big Profits with No–Risk, Low–Risk, and Measured–Risk Strategies
"This book is a must–read for anyone interested in learning to trade or those who have never quite been able to make trading profitable. It is not often that you get an author who bears his soul to his strength and weaknesses, and his conclusion that you should never believe in anything but yourself is worth the price of the book. It is learning to know ′how to think′ as opposed to ′what to think.′ "

"Having traded for over twenty years, I′ve seen dozens of books about trading techniques and methods. But this is the first time I′ve encountered a book that goes into the unchartered territory of a trader′s soul. Jankovsky delves into places that others haven′t ventured, and this book′s mixture of philosophy, theology, and real–life trading experiences provides a jolt of fresh perspective. This is unlike any other trading book that′s ever been published."

"Jason tells it like it is: he packs a real punch in telling you the true story of what it′s like to be on the other side of the phone, from the broker′s perspective. What you′ll read might shock you, it will surely entertain you, and most of all it will teach you things about the market that you can′t learn anywhere else. One of the best books I′ve read about the market in the last ten years."
Rob Booker, independent trader and host of TraderRadio.net
"I have read hundreds of trading books, and The Art of the Trade is the first book that kept my interest from beginning to end. I have been weary to endorse books in the past. Not only do I endorse this book, I am also giving it to all of my friends."
