This book is for those individuals who like to read about certain candlestick characteristics, and then test themselves on their level of understanding. Each chapter begins with a bullet-pointed list of learning objectives and key terms to watch for. It then explains the concept, shows examples, provides highlighted key points, and then provides review questions, and detailed answers. In most all of the chapters, the review questions and answers take up more pages than the explanation of the candlestick pattern or the concept being taught. So, this is more of an instructional and teacher-student approach to the subject.
One chapter entitled "Progressive Charting" is about 50 pages long and contains a walk-through of an unfolding market scenario, a few candles at a time using 88 annotated charts. The purpose of this approach is to help the reader interpret each candle or pattern in a real market situation and learn from his/her experience.
The last chapter entitled "Bringing It Altogether" asks you 42 questions about candlestick charting and provides the detailed answers. This allows the reader to determine his/her level of understanding and areas for further study. The book contains a short "visual" glossary illustrating candlestick patterns.
For readers who are avid students and like to work through numerous exercises and examples of the basics of candlesticks, this book will serve their needs well. For other investors who want more "meat" and detailed information and explanation, then I would recommend Nison's "Beyond Candlesticks" instead.
I don't expect to be a trading wizard after reading through this book but I do expect my trades will be thought out more thoroughly with the right techniques.
Get this book even if you don't use candle charts now.
