    The real path to trading based on technical analysis

    If you are looking for a book with step by step formulas for trading and producing income - then this is NOT the book for you. However, if that is what you are looking for you than you are better off heading to Vegas with your money.

    This is part science and part art, and the author provides the beginning path for learning both sides of understanding the markets. She is very successful, and has obviously spent many years dissecting and implementing technical analysis.

    I am onto her second book, but still refer back to the first constantly - and using the methods successfully.

    Not worth the money

    If you want to learn the mechanics of Technical Analysis of stock and futures prices, look elsewhere. If you want to hear the author prattle on about what a great fund manager she is, go ahead and waste your money.

    A reviewer

    Was looking for the Murphy book at the actual brick&mortar store - they didn't have it so I got this instead... I will be returning it after reading only a couple of pages. It is not well organized. The author just seems to kind of ramble from one topic to the next. I will just have to order the Murphy book, which seems to be the one everyone recommends, and wait for it to come in.
