Read through 100 pages before giving up. This book is insanely rich in material, however that simultaneously is its weak point. The book being packed with huge amounts of info, is insanely difficult to read and you will find yourself being confused and overwhelmed by even just a paragraph of information. Al Brooks rewrote and elaborated the material in this book into three separate books which are written in a more comprehensive manner. Still however, it is not recommended for absolute beginners ...more

Takes a huge amount of willpower and concentration to finish this book. Even so, I had to skip a few pages now and then when it became overwhelming.

This is a no nonsense book on reading price action. Even though, like all other TA books, some analyses came across as a tad hindsight driven, the author was able to use a consistent approach to highlight how he came to the interpretations.

I would say it is very enlightening and provided me with fresh perspectives for my own trading.

This is a very serious book. Also tough!

1.I recommend a follow up from Brooks website where he reviews bars Daily so as to make good sense of what he's written here.

2. Download End-of-Day Market data and follow through,if you're also that serious.

Note to self: He is a trader, not a writer. Very hard to read, basically slogged through the entire book. Lots of information, not well presented (either that or there is something wrong with my comprehension skills)
