    Excellent introductory book on technical analysis.

    This book belongs in your library. It covers TA from an easy to understand perspective. Mr. Kamich explains in an entertaining manner why technical patterns and indicators work. Not only that, but he also shows examples of non-text-book perfect patterns, which is an invaluable lesson since you almost never see textbook versions in real life!

    A great technical analysis book from a fresh perspective.

    Bruce Kamich has written one of the best books on technical analysis that I've seen in a long time. Unlike most introductory books, it neither over simplifies, nor does it make it seem as if you need a PhD to learn how to use technical analysis. The book explains how and why technical patterns and indicators work in an entertaining way. On top of that, the examples of patterns in the book are not 'text book'. You actually get to see what these things might look like in the real world instead of the perfect picture you see in most books. This is invaluable. On top of that, the book is a bargain!
