Ah ha. The link I found was only the T.O.C. and intro. So disappointed when I got to page 12 and found it was the end. Rats. Sorry bout that.

Does anyone read his books? Are they as good as I heard?

I specially interested in his book "The definitive guide to position sizing", I tried to download but I couldn't do it. If someone has the book in pdf, please let me know where you found it

Thanks.
You don't need to buy any books to read about position sizing. There is around a lot of free material that is even better and more practica, without the hype. Some examples:

Yeah those resources embrace almost all important aspects of position sizing but lacks real examples. But nevertheless you can use your demo account to check the information for consistency, so to say . Position sizing is extremely important for Xau/Usd pair, as well as for other comdoll pairs...
