Good Book
Good book, if you really want to learn stock analysis. It gets you thinking for yourself about the movements of stocks. There is no way one can absorb all the information provided within the text. It is a guide and reference for those who want to devote time to stock analysis. I am now more educated on stock trends, but still require the book for periodic refreshers. If you're buying this book for casual reading, find another book. Although very good, this book is very intense and reading it will consume some time. Dedication is required to finish the book, but the potential for success is great, much greater than a lottery ticket.

Was the classic until re-release of Schabacker's book
Excellent book on TA, and this edition improves on prior one (not just because I get an acknowledgement in it). Spectacular description of Dow Theory. Uneven in more modern updates for indicators and such. Pattern descriptions second only to Schabacker's book.

Many people consider this book to be a classic. I honestly think the book by Bruce Kamich, "How Technical Analysis Works" or John Murphy's "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets" are better choices for the beginning student. This is largely because the treatment of indicators and more modern topics - added after the original authors wrote the book - are grafted on, and though the editor has tried very hard, these items belong in another volume we they can be treated in a more complete and modern manner.

Not as up to date as other books
A lot of the ideas on the book are from before the internet era, thus they are outdated. For this reason I wouldn't recommend it as a primer because you need to know how to distinguish the hay from the gold. On the other hand the book is really a treasure chest of practical technical analysis. It includes most of the tactical ideas you need to place a trade (some of them are outdated too, specially the stops), and it explains them in a very understandable and comprehensive way.

HUGE compilation of patterns & supporting qualifications
A dry read, but worth getting for your reference library simply due to the amount of ground it covers in TA. There are other books on TA I would recommend to the beginner over this one (Shannon's Tech Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes is a good one), but if you're a serious chartist, this is worth the price. Keep it handy cause it's got the heavy analytical meat.
