decent book for the basic of TA
this was the first book that i read on TA. Its a good start to understanding the basic chart patterns in technical analysis. Not very advanced. But its exactly what the title implies. A great intro book to TA.

Excellent reading for a newcomer
As an experianced trader, I found this book very interesting and gave me a good overview of what technical analysis is. As the title suggests it is for beginners and gave me a good understanding with numerous examples to get the reader to understand the concept on his own. It would have been helpful to have the charts being discussed on the same page. Those expecting a detailed "recipie" on how to trade with technical analysis should not buy this book. As for technical analysis as a tool for trading I have always been a skeptic. This book has not changed my opinon on TA, but the book is an excellent reading.

Good for Beginners
This book is dense with information and cannot be approached lightly. I read "New Market Wizards" in one week but this book took two months. As usual, the effort expended is proportional to the benefit received. In particular, the chapter on "Real Life Chart Analysis" is worth the price, and should be three times longer. There, Mr. Schwager shares two dozen of his own real-life trades, accompanied by the charts and technical analysis he used at the time. The reader is given the opportunity to personally apply the techniques learned from the book to second-guess the author. Only on flip pages are the actual trade results shown, annotated with ruminations on what, if anything, should have been done differently. Examples of both successful and unsuccessful trades are given. Approximately half of the book explains technical analysis, and the other half explains basic trading techniques such as money management, system testing, and the psychological (emotional) pitfalls to avoid. In my humble opinion, no one should trade until understanding the principles presented here. My one criticism is that the book would be easier to follow if the charts were on the same page as their related commentary, but it is only fair to mention that most technical analysis books suffer the same shortcoming. Overall it does a decent job presenting crucially important information for beginners.

First Trading Book I've Read
This is the first book I read about trading and technical analysis about a decade ago. I read it out of curiosity and as a bathroom read. I had zero background knowledge before reading the book, and looking back, I can say it was an excellent beginner book. It goes through a great intro to technical analysis and all of the basics of technical analysis - support, resistance, moving averages etc, all the while showcasing their applicability on horrendously bland stock charts.

Its an easy read, entertaining, and a good primer. It serves its purpose and lives up to the title. I've since read the Market Wizards books. Schwager is a great author, and it shows in all of his books.

Very good intro
Read this awhile back and provides a beginner a very good intro into Technical analysis and how you can use it to your advantage. Discusses some of the chart patterns that technical traders use. I would have liked more focus on the most profitable trading patterns. There is always a danger than chart patterns may become less useful over time. This book is more than 10 years old.

Good overview, but not Jack's best
A good first book on technical analysis for anyone new to the subject, but not Jack's best work. His best work by far is the market wizards books then Schwager of Futures.

Worth a read, but there are better TA books out there.
