    hard to read, but fairly insightful

    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 comprehensive manner Still however, it is not recommended for absolute beginners.I give this book a 3.5 5 It s amazingly informative There s 1 point lost on the effort and time required to decipher the huge block of texts Half a point is deducted from the lack of annotations and poor placement of the charts.

    Im rating this 3 5 because while most of the material its good, and it does have some interesting set ups for price action trading, the writing style and organization of the whole book makes it almost imposible to keep track of the setups and logic behind them.Price action bar interpretation is right on, and in tune with other books on the subject, but the lack of organization and the added difficulty of the author giving new names to already known things MB2 means buying a test of the EMA on a 2nd high low, Hight 2 to refer to the 2nd high on a rally makes this a tough non didactical read.The material and set ups are nice, though nothing ground breaking I do like his views on some of this classics of price action, but he should get a better editor.Im going to check out his other books and videos, if any of them are any good I will be rating them for you here at goodreads

    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.http view2 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
