Book is good and i definitely learned something and may even start using in the future. However, my only drawback is that many of the examples seemed to confirm the trade entry criteria after the fact. For example, at the end of a downtrend there is a consolidation area that breaks the AVWAP first before the main trend up begins. Well most of the examples show him buying exactly after the consolidation area the perfect time to begin the uptrend. He does go more into detail on this, however some of the example you have to shake your head (look at the short interest section...mentioning as this is the most recent section I finished). Good book overall.

A must have for any trader wanting to improve their performance or learn a powerful new approach. This book is worth every cent you pay for it. If I could give it 6 stars I would.
