This would probably not be the best first book for beginners, but I think anybody interested in trading could get many nuggets of wisdom from this book. For those who already have a good sound basic understanding of trading strategies, strategy development, statistical mathematical concepts and a decent understanding of excel and easylanguage, particularly TradeStation easylanguge, then this book is a must have! Kudos to the author for putting together such a comprehensive reference!
Given the number of pages, > 1200, good library,/ value for money..
This is a book useful for system trading (which I do) and might even have an idea or two for the discretionary trader. To point an accusatory "what stupid book" finger at Kaufman for pointing out not so readily accepted ideas (i.e. moon phase, etc.) is plain silly. There are some obsolete parts, like old computer code, but the remaining 600 pages are great.
I wish I would have discovered this book years ago (but maybe, I would have "not gotten it" then). It is definitely one of my must have (and often consulted) books in my trading library.
