Too much Theory, June 27, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: The Day Trader's Manual: Theory, Art, and Science of Profitable Short-Term Investing (Hardcover) I was looking for "How To" Day trading book. Reading this book was torture. I felt Mr. Eng was trying harder to impress upon the reader his vast knowledge of the theory of economics, rather than teaching one how to day trade. I admit, I couldn't force myself to read the whole book. By the time I finished part two, feeling I'd gained nothing out of those 186 awful pages, I moved on to more exciting authors.

One of the best books on successful trading I've read, September 7, 1998 By A Customer This review is from: The Day Trader's Manual: Theory, Art, and Science of Profitable Short-Term Investing (Hardcover) I'm an advanced trader and only bought this book because a very good friend who is a retiring physician suggested I do so. The book is written in three separate parts. The first part discusses the theory of day trading. The second goes into the details of applying current strategies. The third, and this is where the meat is, takes about 14 trading examples and applies the thinking process of how to trade to actual markets. This book goes far beyond what most other "how to" books on market trading is all about. The other books I've read goes and tells the intricate details of what techniques and how to use them. What Eng does in this book, and other books, is to tell how to use the techniques to make money. This is what I am, as a trader trying to make money, looking for. I don't want to know that a 7 day moving average is better than a 13 day moving average. I just want to know how to make money. Eng tells me how to do so without bogging me down with useless details. I hate...

A must for all serious day traders..., March 17, 1998 By A Customer This review is from: The Day Trader's Manual: Theory, Art, and Science of Profitable Short-Term Investing (Hardcover) The simple and straight to the point title, The Day Trader's Manual, says it all. This is a compact (at just over 300 pages, with pages of detailed graphs -- no frills, nonsense, or jargon junk -- although Eng deftly incorporates terms that all traders do or will know), but invaluable text. As Eng points out in his preface, the Manual guides the beginner through the science, art, and theory of day trading. Experienced traders can use it to refresh their memories of the basics of day trading while tackling the more difficult ideas. Being a beginner trader myself, I don't think there's any other book I found more helpful, insightful, and worth my while. This book is an education in itself. Trading is a complex arena and requires experience, thought, and hard work (besides preparation)...and Eng has provided a definitive Bible that sets one off on the right path. Modest throughout, Eng includes some of his own experiences [note: in almost every book about investing or markets the...
