Nice book that explains the principle of trend following
Nice book that explains the principle of trend following, although I'm not into trend following it had some good insights and lessons that are useful for every trader.

A Philsophy Book, Not a Technical Manual
Trend Following is the sort of book that can either be very rewarding or very frustrating. If you pick it up thinking it's going to provide some secret methods and techniques for trading you are going to end up being one of the folks who ends up panning it because they didn't get what they expected. This is not a technical manual full of strategies. If you understand that going in you'll get a lot more out of it.

This book, to my mind is like a trading version of a text exploring a specific philosophy such as Taoism with something of a comparisson to Buddhism, for example. Trend Following describes the philosophy and highlights some of its promonent proponents. And just like most books on philosophy, it sets you up for further exploration rather than presenting you with a "how to" instruction.

I think if you have the philosophy mindset going in it will go a long way toward helping you find value in the book.

Lacking in the Details
This is a well written book, but I think it is a bit deceiving. For anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of trend following such as technical indicators, entrys and exits, position sizing, etc. this book will dissapoint. It has very little in the way of strategy and is instead heavily focused on the history of successful trend followers. If you want to learn about the general concepts of what it means to be a trend follower and examine past performance data of successful trend traders than this book is for you. If you want to learn specific techniques for trading in the markets, this book is a huge fail. Interesting read, but not overly useful stuff.

An Empirical tale with quite a bit of evidence....
I really enjoyed this book. More than anything it made me realize where a lot of my own trading rules come from. The book itself is well written, and entertaining. There are a lot of good pieces of wisdom throughout the book. I would have liked to have seen some of the actual trading systems that were being used during the time that the managers referenced made the money they did, and how they got into the positions they were in, but that would probably be a bit much to ask of a 20 dollar book. Overall I would rate this book a mandatory read.

Millions?
While interesting from a historical perspective, Covel's "Trend Following" strategy wasn't exactly clearly outlined in his book. It may be an interesting read for more experienced traders, but not necessarily useful to beginners. With that being said, the book is well researched, well-written and mildly entertaining. It also provides some framework towards understanding momentum trading and for the rationale behind disregarding fundamentals for short-term trading.

Some good bits.
I bought this book because I wanted to find some great insights about the trend followers. The books is fantastic here. I learned, for example, that when Seykota "looks at a market that everyone thinks has exhausted its up trend, this is often when he likes to get in .... He just puts the chart on the other side of the room and if it looked like it was going up, then he would buy it.

Overall its an easy read but can be a bit haphazard and repetitive here and there.

Don't know what to think
I'e read some of Covel's books, watched his DVDs, but I never really learn anything from them, just very broad claims about a "trend following strategy" that is not well defined. I know a friend who spent lots of money on CDs but was very unhappy with the result. To add insult to injury, there was a big problem getting his money back too. I think he had to wait a year, document all his trades, pay a steep restocking fee.

I make a rule that if I don't find I'm learning much and light bulbs don't go off, the service is generally a waste of $$$.
