It's well established that interest rates significantly impact the stock market. This is the first book that definitively explores the interest rate/stock market relationship and describes a specific system for profiting from the relationship.
Timing the Market provides an historically proven system, rooted in fundamental economics, that allows investors and traders to forecast the stock market using data from the interest-rate markets, together with supporting market sentiment and cultural indicators, to pinpoint and profit from major turns in the stock market.

I think this book is a must read, I liked it so much that I bought the audio book as well as the printed version. This book imparts good knowledge about economic cycles and how to capitalize from it using Fundamental and Technical indicators; both are well explained.
If you are a great institutional or public money manager, you could be skeptic about timing the market, however, for the average person this book gives an excellent context of the markets, which asset class to be invested in during a specific market phase and how to recognize that a phase is shifting and adjust your investments accordingly.
I would have thought this to be an abridged version due to the lack of depth. Less a "definitive guide" than a fairly interesting overview indicating additional areas for study. I would think this to be disappointing for anyone with some reasonable grasp of economics and market analysis but, perhaps, useful for a novice. The greatest value may be in revealing to the casual trader this undeniable fact: reaping profits by timing the market with any consistency is very nearly impossible.
I agree this book is useless due to lack of depth. And the woman's voice is not very pleasant. I totally regret buying this book.
