Nothing more than an infomercial for his business - selling software to support the methods. The "fractal" method that he presents appears to be backwards i.e. sell an up market, buy a down market. Also he discusses his trend lines by color and all of the plates are in grey scale. You can figure it out but it does take away from the desired effect.

I have seen there are few people criticizing the use of chaos theory in this book. I have read other books on chaos, probably they are more complex, closer to the theory, but apply them to the market if you can.
This book emphasizes on knowing yourself and then the market. My experience is it took me from being not consistent winner to a profitable trader. I can also look to the market as a friendly place for the rest of my life. No more struggle, just flow.

Williams uses big words (fractals, chaos, quantum mechanics) to impress the reader, but says nothing meaningful.I found this book a waste of time and money

When I first read this book (it was my second book on trading) I thought it was the Holy Grail and that trading would be the easiest thing in the world. It is now 1 year since I read it and I must admit that I have read over 15 more books on trading since then....today I can only say that the techniques outlined in the book are far too simple and too far away from the real world. When you code the systems you will find out that none of them are working and personally I don't think that Bill Williams has ever made a single dime trading...at least not with the systems outlined on the book.

The book walks you step by step on how and what to look for when using Dr. Williams methodology. He reveals all his indicators in the book, so if you can't afford his software/course, you can simply add it to your favorite charting software!
After reading some reviews here, I have found two extremes in regards to both his books. Not enough theory of chaos or "just a simple little trend following system". If you're looking for the scientfic version of trading chaos, don't get this book. If you felt you've read your share of "trend methodology", skip it. But if you are interested in implementing a robust trading system, and one that works, get this book now!
Few of the reviewers seem tied up in semantics on whether it is or it isn't a "trend trading system" or "not really chaos theory". None however mention anything remotely about making money trading futures!
Do yourself a favor and forget those reviews(unless you happen to fall into the two categories mentioned)and buy the book!

I just finished programming the entire system into Tradestation 2000i, I double checked it by checking it against his own proprietory software to make sure it works and I can tell you that if you choose the right securities to trade based on the sleeping alligator that this is an excellent system or at least an excellent start of a system. This book uses a proven methodology however you won't be able to tell that if you just trade it straight, you have to use all the resources mentioned in the book to fully appreciate it, please don't just mechanically program it into a computer and go by those results but use the tools or Atti-tools fully.

Also to get a more complete picture I read his first book "Trading Chaos" which detailed how to find the zero point or end of a trend where you would initiate your trading

As an avid student of Chaos Theory and Fractals, I found this book to be similar to his other one. Williams eludes to using fractals in his analysis but makes no reference to fractal dimensions, Koch curves, monsters or any of the original theories as proposed by Mandelbrot. He does present some scaling principles and their application to Elliot Waves, but this is under the assumption that the Elliot Wave is correct or that you believe in it. I do agree with some of the money flow theories Williams proposes, which is probably the most clearly explained and substantiated part of his trading theory. For a more scientific approach to fractal analysis, I recommend "Fractals and Scaling in Finance" by Mandelbrot and for software, "Fractal Finance" by Tetrahex. Both of these follow a similar system, although Fractal Finance does use a MACD which appears similar to Williams.
