I heard John Murphy speak at ChartCon 2012. His presentation on intermarket analysis was excellent so I bought a couple of his books. This book is divided into four sections.

Good book overall. A little outdated however the middle part of the book demonstrates how to use all those indicators of charts you never know what it means. The book is full of examples so 300 pages is actually more like 150 of reading.
I had a basic idea of technical analysis, or Visual Investing as Mr. Murphy refers to it, prior to starting this book. I found the book to be a great description of the main ideas of charting and their application. I would recommend it to anybody wanting to learn about reading charts and improving their trading skills.
This is a very good book for people who are learning how to use technical indicators, read charts to see trends and patterns, and look for leading indicators using commodities, bond futures, relative strength, etc. I'm going to read this book again after I've had a chance to digest the first reading.
A good, but brief, introduction to technical analysis of the markets. If you have any understanding of it prior to the book you may not get much out of it, but if you are new to the subject then this is a good book to start with
