Don't buy the nook book edition of this book. It heavily utilizes annotated stock charts in the text and these charts are completely unreadable on the nook. I'm extremely upset with Barnes and Noble for offering this book for sale in a state where it is inherently useless. The charts are unreadable on any version of the nook software I honestly feel like I have been completely ripped off. I've asked for a refund of the price for this book but even IF I do get my money back, the fact that this ebook is even for sale in this unusable state angers me.

I bought this ebook thinking that i would be able to put this in my nook. But the charts are very blurry. I have a very difficult time studying the chart. That is why i ended up buying a book.. Unless there is a significant improvement, stick with book.. As far as the content is concered, this is must reading

This book does what it says it will do, you can make money in stock investing by using this information. Beginners should "paper trade" at first, or use a very small percentage of their capital to start. It takes practice and experience to get a feel for it. Make sure you have a market that is going up, that is an increasing index, to make it a little easier for you. But it works, and takes a lot of the stress and uncertainly out of investing.

To comprehend the book, the charts are very important. However you are not able to read the charts in the Nook. I tried to zoom in and read them on the Nook for the Mac/PC and still no luck. In this case the paperback is the best option.

Although one can use O'Neil's market interpretation for short-term trading, that's not what this method is about. His goal is to describe various ways to recognize long-term winners. The "setups" he recommends are seen on the weekly chart (not daily), and the shortest ones are one to two Months(!) long and can last over a year. Similarly, though no method works all the time, intended hold times are weeks at a minimum. In other words, he's looking for stocks that are likely to be bought by the general market for some time.

This is my third purchase of the book. It has become a solid reference and I have now included it on my Nook.

Great book yet the charts meant for learning make it a poor Nook book as they are to small to read.

First of all, I believe O'Neil wrote the book so he could sell more newspapers as well as other investment advisory services. The CANSLIM formula is difficult to apply to thousands of stocks; thusfar no mechnical system has been developed, so it's more or less guesswork. His newspaper, OTOH, publishes charts that supposedly fit the formula, so you really need to subscribe to the paper or a paid service to use the formula. Second, even if you want to go ahead and get the book, do not get the nook edition. It's poorly formatted and worst of all, the charts are just too small and you can't see the details of the stock charts, which is bad if you do want to study his methodology of chart reading.
