    In his latest book, Tharp shows readers how to dramatically improve their trading results and financial life by looking within. He leads them by the hand through three levels of transformation, using trading as a metaphor for transformation. The first level is what he calls “Tharp Think” and it refers to the ideas gained from his modeling work with great traders. However, the second level of transformation is spiritual. To utilize “Tharp Think,” people have to stop making mistakes and steer clear of methods that don't work. Tharp also has five chapters on various methods people can use to transform themselves. Using an unconventional approach to evaluating trading systems and beliefs, Tharp outlines how to make the best trades and optimize your finances.
