Top customer reviews
I found the ideas in the book generally good, but the book is poorly written in my opinion and at times not easy to read. The organization, grammar, etc. is fine, but the examples are not always clear. The charts often have axis data that is unreadable (even with a magnifying glass) so it's hard to tell what the text is describing, and many of the examples seem to either pull some information out of the air, or assume some general knowledge that isn't presented. I am an engineer, so I understand the math with no problem. It was disappointing that there are virtually no formulas; it was like a constant word problem described in text--sometimes with a missing (maybe assumed?) piece of needed information which I found to be very confusing and frustrating to figure out what the author is describing. I got the general ideas though, but it was definitely not what I would consider an easy read. The content seems to be directed somewhere between a beginner and advanced investor, but probably not particularly useful for either one alone. If you have a good general understanding of investing and want additional exposure to risk management and short-term trading concepts and risk management, then this is probably a good resource for you if you're willing to spend the time and effort to plod through the book.
However, if you are very new to investing or trading this probably is not a good book for you. If you have at least some of the basics and want to expand your knowledge, it will expose you a lot of things to consider and do further research on.
