  1. Michaels read is absolutely amazing. He is such a fantastic story teller. His story has the charm and make sense to every one who reads it. He assumer very little mathematical background to the reader. I always recommend his book to all my non math savvy friends.
    I recall this from his book ” Traders are great story tellers” Michael ranks pretty high among the list of my story tellers.
    Thanks Paul for sharing the link
