    A Must for Any Investor

    The traditional approach to investing - buy and hold - is no longer true, at least for the next decade or so. The market will rise and fall and with each downturn investors will lose profits that may not be coming back. This book will help you avoid those sharp downturns by understanding stock prices in relationship to their cyclical behaviors created through two human behaviors: greed & fear. This book introduces the reader to technical analysis - a skill you must have if you plan to take responsibility for your investments. Read this and subscribe to a score of credible bloggers on investing and get busy - you CAN make money in a bear market!

    little tough for beginners

    Book is informative, but requires some knowledge of terms. It should be used with other books detailing such things as how to use the internet investment web sites.
