Noise

The book says, "... noise needs to be avoided at all cost", I couldn't agree more. This book is simply a noise of cliches that adds nothing to the science of trading.

All Show and Very Little Depth

I wanted meat, but this book was just cotton candy. Just a bunch of vagaries about market action, reducing risk and being careful. Duh.

As Simple As This

People are always looking for the "Holy Grail" of trading with some indicator or trading secret to make money in the markets. But there is no such thing! The landscape is littered with blown accounts and broken dreams looking for such. This Audiobook tells you exactly to the "T" how simple it is to be profitable in the markets.

Wasted time!!

This is only good for wasting your valueable time!! No true information about how to capitalized on the market. Just him telling you things about the market you have heard or read some where else before. Save Your Money and Time. I wished i could have rate it Minus stars.

Outdated book with no value in trading techniques

This book has no substance and not worth the money. I listened to it all and there are no trading tools and tricks on becoming a better tradee.

UNabridged? Where's the rest of my book???

I've owned this book in hardcover for about fifteen years. It's laying open in front of me now -- all four hundred plus pages, three sections and I think fifteen chapters. The audio book seems to include the first five chapters verbatum, and is just as described on Audible for playtime... but what about the rest of the print material? What am I missing here???

I expected the whole thing, and would have given better scores if it was there.

Psychology and Personal Demons of Swing Traders

Any additional comments?

I don't think the title reflects what is in the book. To me it was more of a psychology book. As someone wanting to learn about swing trading, much of it scared me and psyched me out. Oh no, I could me my own worst enemy, etc. blah, blah. But, it does give some good advice to be disciplined, avoid risky trading patterns, etc.

layer

layer upon layer of almost knowledge, disquised as wisdom hidden among many words, yet never getting to any point, this author missed his calling, he should have written textbooks about origins, he would have won a nobel prize, could have been the worlds greatest evolutionist,or global warming author,

Very much for beginners

It's more just like good advice. I anticipated more advanced information. The author tells you what you should do and not really how in much detail.

Vacuous Generalizations

Many sections of this book begin with good-sounding principles, but it never proceeds from there to specific guidance. The reader [or listener in this case] will find no clear or detailed enough instructions to trade anything anytime, from this book alone. It is overall, the most useless book I have ever encountered on trading.

Brilliant finally some in-depth trading tactics

Many of the trading books here are general simplistic rubbish which simply failed to deliver a comprehensive strategy. This book is a refreshing change from that. It actually gives you some strategies and techniques. This book does require some knowledge of the market so make sure you understand simple things like support resistance volume candlestick charts and so on before purchasing this great guide to more complex effective techniques.

Lots that's interesting but hard to digest.

I struggled a bit with this book, not because the information isn't worth a listen for those interesting in financial markets, but because it lacks shape and focus. I've listened to it twice and it feels like four hours of almost random sentences, many of which say something interesting, but with little that ties it all together and makes it coherent and memorable.

I'm sure it's a style that will suit someone out there, but I found it unsatisfying despite the authors obvious knowledge in the field.

Narrator is fine.

Broad, generic, general and mostly unhelpful.

A very general and generic account of the principles of trading with very little and mostly incoherent specific instructions of trade execution.
