The 3 key differentiators of this book are: The text is simple and while obviously not for a pure layman, is an excellent guide for a "financial layman" i.e. a person who is involved with the investment industry but is not necessarily a fund manager. May I call it a "Technical Analysis for Dummies" in terms of quality of content as well as simplicity of delivery? I particularly loved the mix of examples i.e. both very well known stocks as well as slightly obscure stocks so that the reader understands the limitations of technical analysis as a decision making tool across the liquidity spectrum. I also liked the approach explaining the correct use of tools of technical analysis and things for which they cannot be used or where they need supporting analysis1 Otherwise a financial layman can make the mistake of thinking that these are a panacea! Krishnamurthy Vijayan Whoietime Director and CEO J.P.Morgan Asset Management
