Bottom Line: This is one of the better books you can ever read on trading. Will not reveal all of their secrets but will put you ahead of the uninformed by leaps and bounds. You will most likely have to purchase some of their other training material to finally have it all click but most books are intros to trading services anyway.
I have tried some of the approaches suggested for swing trading stocks and have had some limited success but I haven't done enough trading to see if it will ultimately provide some real value.
Some of the things I did like were the descriptions of how to set the specific buy prices for longs and sell prices for shorts as well as target prices to close out trades at and the approaches to clearly defining stops. Most such books avoid be specific in these areas and to my mind have little value because of that.
Had I found this book when I day traded, I think it would have been far more valuable to me and if I do go back to day trading I will certianly consider its approaches.
