Given the price, I would recommend more recent books by Martin Pring or the updated classic by John Murphy. The practice of technical analysis has changed dramatically since Eng authored his book.
Each chapter of the book focuses on one technical indicator or technical discipline. Many examples are provided to illustrate the concepts and how they are used in interpreting charts and making trade decisions. The rules explained in the book are pretty explicit so they are easy to understand. One of the most important feature of the book is not inside the chapters though, which are the 2 big tables printed inside the front cover and the back cover. They are the ground rules and the core framework Eng is trying to convey to the readers.
Although the book was written with a lot of information, it is pretty outdated in 2005. Most of the computer programs mentioned in the book no longer exist. Daytrading price patterns have changed a lot due to the impact of program trading. Many reference to calculations are incorrect which is common among books written in that period. Thus, the reader can only utilize the information in the book by cross verify the markets they are going to trade to see how the various trading rules can be fitted into their own plans.
As a whole, it is a good book that summarized what real pro traders do during the era it was written. Even if you find the information no longer applicable today, you will still find that it is a good read.
