I read Van Tharp's book TYWTFF twice...

Ryan Jones Money Management Course

Just wonder if anyone studied Ryan's Money Management Course offered on his web-site for US $ 995.00 and if he/she would recommand it. I did not find any comments on the course in the forum but I am aware of his book and his contribution to this topic.

Thanks.
