How to Use Expert Interviews For Your Book with Market Wizards Author Jack Schwager

Become a Writer Today

How can interviews help you if you are writing a non-fiction book? I spent a lot of time interviewing guests for this podcast and as a freelance journalist. Interviews can seem like they're pretty straightforward to do. But it can take almost as long to prepare for an interview, particularly if you don't know the topic well. Even if you're knowledgeable about a topic, it's still helpful to figure out an angle for your interview because it gives a strong structure. I have learned to use interviews in my non-fiction because they help add a third-party voice. If you're writing a non-fiction book about a particular topic, interviewing an expert in your niche adds credibility. One series of books that's made a significant impact on me is the Market Wizards series by Jack Schwager. He profiles day traders, investors, and various types of financial entrepreneurs who have made money in the markets. Now, I don't day trade, but I particularly like these books because they give a good insight into a different type of career. They also reveal commonalities between writers who spend a lot of time alone in a room writing and day traders who can do the same except in front of their terminals or computer screens. Jack uses interviews to craft a compelling argument throughout the chapters. The Market Wizards series extends over five books, and he's spent 30 years working on this particular series.So when I caught up with Jack, I had a stack of questions for him. I hope you enjoy my catch-up with Jack about his Market Wizards series of books. I recommend them even if you're not interested in day trading. They offer excellent advice about risk management and starting your own business, and they are a great read.In this episode, we discuss:How Jack gets ready to interview day traders, investors, and people who found success in the marketsHow Jack had sustained his interest in a topic for over 30 yearsHow difficult it is to find new angles and ways to talk about the same ideas or topics Resources:Website: https://jackschwager.com/Support the show

#12- With the legendary trader Mr. Jason Shapiro- 'The Contrarian' from Jack Schwager's book 'Unknown Market Wizards'

Learn from Traders

The lesser I speak about this episode and our guest, the better it will be for you as a listener and a learner. I want you to listen to this episode and dive deep into our conversation and then learn. Everything that Mr. Shapiro talks about in this episode is from his goldmine of lessons that he has accumulated over the course of 30 years of trading. He starts with talking about his early days, and as the conversation progresses, we discuss how trading according to his real personality and beliefs is something that worked for him in the markets. It gave him the name 'The Contrarian' as Mr. Shapiro likes to bet against the market sentiment and follow a contrarian approach. To develop the ability to follow such an approach, a person has to be true to themselves. That is something I picked up Mr. Shapiro from the moment we started talking. He is a true contrarian by nature, but more importantly, he is raw, real, honest and simple. His trading approach is similar. He does not care about the world or what people think of him. He just follows his strategy with discipline, self-belief and patience. Without giving too much information here, I want to confess that this episode is amazing, for the lack of a better word. Mr. Shapiro has a lot to teach every one. Try to make sense of the simple pieces of advice, or rather the pearls of wisdom that he has to offer, and see how much this person can change you for good. If nothing, he will surely help you become more honest with yourself. To know more about Mr. Jason Shapiro and the helpful work he and his team are doing at their organization 'Crowded Market Report', do check out their website- 'https://www.crowdedmarketreport.com/'. The community at CMR and the membership programs are a good place to learn from and improve as a trader. Your feedback is always welcome and will help me improve.
