    fantastic

    I read this book cover-to-cover in two days and felt instantly literate when i turned back to my chart. Readers will appreciate the careful wording of the text that is neither too technical nor sugar coated.

    Easy to read and understand, packed with information

    Yes, a book that cuts to the chase about what to look for and how to interpret a chart. Arroyo is a long time author with a bevy of books, all good, all worth the read. This book is an excellent starting point, or for those who are self starters and need new insight. Arroyo is brilliant. I wouldn't pass up a chance to read any of his books.
