Like many other insider tracking/monitoring books in this category, the author discusses the ins and outs of following Form 4 filings. Yet, he does it in a way that lets/makes you think about what's being discussed.
I've recently completed another book in this category, and the author wrote more prose - it read more like a novel as he gave short stories and analogies of his own experiences. That was a very different writing style - very easy/light reading. I prefer the authors approach in this book better because it stays very focused on the topic and doesn't wander off.
The author also touches on other SEC filings as well, but just scratching the surface leaving the door open to go investigate more on your own if you're really interested. Again, very well done.
Because it is slow reading, requiring time to digest everything, I'm actually only about 3/4 the way through it. However, even completing just that much I have a very good take on the book, the material, and the author's presentation style.
If you have a more technical/scientific background (like myself), this is a good book for you as the material presented is very cut and dry - primarily just getting straight to the point of the topics being discussed and not a lot of filler.

This book is a must if you want to get a jump on insider trades and profit from it.
There is also a real time [...]insider trading site that display all insider transactions in real time
