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Outdated book with no value in trading techniques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,

Absolutel garbage..Superfluous prose.

What a steaming pile of crap! I was hoping for a book that would discuss actionable ideas. Maybe offer the differences between swing trading, day trading buy/hold strategies.. Nothing . I purchased the Audible edition and the first chapter was tough to get through.. He's trying to use prose to hook me in..I could give a crap on the use of sophisticated words..This is basically a how to book..get on with it and skip all the use of superfluous prose...Itried the 2nd chapter and couldn't make it through. If there was any useful information I couldn't bear to listen to any more
