What is kinda unique and special about this trading book is how it makes you feel it addresses the whole ball of wax and yet does not shy away from given very particular recommendations. I mean, you can tell the author is very knowledgeable so you can rely more on him than the average stock apostle, and at the same time, he has boiled it down to clear quantitative trading rules. I like that courage. Many authors are either very narrow and passionate (and wrong!) or so wide and general as to be useless. Come to think of it, if you were allowed only one trading book to read in a lifetime, this one would probably be the right choice. What a service to the reader. Thank you Stan.

This book would be very helpful to someone getting started out trying to figure out trading/investing. I did not give it 5 stars because I have read so many books and this book does not give any novel new insights. However if you want to shortcut having read many books, this book would be great for the beginner.
It will give you trading tactics(buying, selling, money management), an intro on technical analysis, and some explanation of what effects the markets. This book has lots of information in a effectively written manner all compiled in an organized way. If you are a beginner, this is a good place to start.
If you have read tons of investment books already, I would guess that you have seen everything this book has to offer already.

Written with humor, this book made me look differently at the market. This book is pure-technical. Very good for people that have behavioral problems when it comes to stocks (like i used to have). It teaches a method which is good for people who rather have a "do or not do" instead of "think for yourself" recipe for success.
The only annoying thing is self-promotion and a bit of arrogance by the author, but the new bunch of $$$ in my bank account most certainly make up for this:)
Another disadvantage is that this book is not up-to-date.
Anyway, i still recommend it as it helped my portfolio a great deal.

excellent book for those who want to know the basics of buying and selling stocks. It is based on American stocks but the rules are the same for the TSX. I would recommend it.

Fully explains charts, MA, RSI, Volume, overhead resistance, Stage analysis. When to and where to place Sell-stop orders, Buy-stop orders limits and GTC....etc. I liked his writing style, very easy to read and understand. This book doesnt cover MACD, Triangular breakout and the rest of 100 other things. You cant fit all that in 1 book. so he only cover the most important thing menthioned above.

You will not be disappointed with this jam packed info. book. Great stuff. Especially liked his explanation of the DARVAS method for trading stocks.
Very basic and you wil lnot be able to trade your own system by readign this book. But as an education... it's a superb START.
