Delete Your Broker.Com, a new book by New York Observer and MSNBC columnist Christopher Byron, is a great read -- especially if you're a pessimist at heart like he is:
"[N]o matter how much you wish it were otherwise, the odds are greatly, indeed impossibly, against your getting rich overnight and staying that way for any appreciable period of time. The structure of the market is against you, some of the cleverest card-counters on the planet are against you, the tax laws and technology are working against you, and on top of all that you've got the powerfully disruptive and unpredictable forces of human psychology working against you."
