There are much better books out there., March 20, 2002 ByRICHARD DIBONA (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Master Swing Trader: Tools and Techniques to Profit from Outstanding Short-Term Trading Opportunities (Hardcover) I realize there are many people who are very passionate about this book, but I am not one of them. I bought this book when it first came out and have tried multiple times to get something out of it. I just can't. It is an impressive looking book to flip through, though. There are complicated looking charts throughout, and the natural first thought is how exciting it will be to be able to utilize these charts and the tools behind them. I kept reading and reading, waiting for him to get to his point. It just never comes. And the book is written in this almost sing-song like tone. I wish I was an English major so I could better describe it. It's almost like reading an endless string of fortune cookies. Here's a random example from a random page I just opened up to (all of the writing in the book is just like this): "Modify personal style frequently as skills grow. Experience awakens fresh tactics. Trading rules should not strangle fresh ideas. Update them to...

Wrong Title, August 9, 2005 ByEd Davis "Ed" (CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Master Swing Trader: Tools and Techniques to Profit from Outstanding Short-Term Trading Opportunities (Hardcover) After reading this book, I thought that the author is extremely dishonest, and that the book should be named as "Swing Rambling On Specially Selected Stock Charts By A Random Mind". If there is anything that could be called "new" in this "book", it is the dishonesty of the writer who made such "tardemark-claim" on the so-called "seven bells". Yet there is nothing, not a single "bell" is defined in any way, even not defined loosely. That's only useful for the writer: since nobody could test it, or claim whether or not they actually work. Sound familiar? Uh!!! It reminded me the infamous fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. I would like to give the writer a second chance: If he could define a single thing out of the "7 bells" on this board, I will be more glad to tell him what is wrong with his "work."

Didn't even Finish the Book, February 19, 2005 ByR. McDonald (SmeLL A. California) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Master Swing Trader: Tools and Techniques to Profit from Outstanding Short-Term Trading Opportunities (Hardcover) This book was too abstract for a trading book and didn't have much substance. There really isn't much you can use in this book to actually make trades with. Farley is basically a legend in his own mind I think. If you want a good book that has a lot of substance and will actually teach you how to trade, get 'how to profit in bull and bear markets' by stan weinstein, I consistantly make money from the techniques and ideas in that book. Take care, Bob.
