Its hard not to be too effusive about the quality of Nisons work reading [his book] was a pleasure. This is clearly one of the best investment books ever written . We strongly recommend this book, which has already become an investment classic.

It is hard to know how much knowledge an author really have when it comes to actual trading. The really successful traders tend not to write at all. This is an issue with all three books. In any case, I get the strong impression that Steve has deeper knowledge than Bigalow. So that should make the choice between the two easy. The book by Bulkowski is not an introduction so I won't comment further on that book. If you want to know more read my review.
(One thing I've always wondered is where the Japanese authors are. If this method is so established in Japan we should have seen several direct translations of Japanese books. This is something for all the American writers to really explain.)
I have written several short reviews on trading books. The best way is to compare the score on the books I've read. Many reviews on amazon.com are just glorious 5 star reviews. I use all five categories; sorry but everything isn't "great". Books rated 5 are very good. Books rated 4 are good solid books well worth reading. Books rated 3 can be bought by some people who read a lot or have very specific needs. Books rated 1 or 2 I would not recommend buying or reading. Naturally all in my humble opinion.
So far the book of "Edwards Magee on Technical analysis" and the book of Steve Nison are the best of all I have encountered on explaining charts, they are classic work. The first one is complex to read, the later one is fun. I have shorted a lot of stocks too many times and lost in most cases, but never understood what is the right time and the correct signal to do so, now I know the answer from these two books.
The book is an easy one to read, it's well put together in simple English. It has a lot of charts and well classified. The author explains the different patterns that appear in charts and their implications on a potential move in one direction or another.
