  • Some parts insightful, others not so much

    By zerozeeren
    This book is a great read for the first few hundred pages in order to develop accurate interpretations of market trends. It does into detail about the CANSLIM criteria for picking winning stocks as well. There is a really strong bias for the government and politicians which overrides the purpose behind some of the chapters. It’s almost ironic because it’s strongest in the chapters about media bias. There are dozens of pages that rant about bad politics and laws that the author obviously does not agree with. To improve this book I would beat around the bush a lot less and get to the point. A lot of the information is airy and drawn out. Ricky Gutierrez’s online course “Learn Plan Profit” has proven to be a much stronger educational tool for me.
  • Great Book for Investors

    This book is great. But I have a problem viewing the charts on my MacBook. Seems to work better on iOS .
  • How to zoom the charts?

    By Nairrak
    Can someone tell me how we can zoom the charts in the book?
  • Great Book

    By Copper Hill
    You can get a much larger view of the charts by changing to scroll and the double clicking on each chart. The guy who gave a bad review does not know how to use his iPad. Mr. O'Neil is very generous with his knowledge. Quite the educator. Easy to read but chock full of critical info that needs to be absorbed. Thank you!
  • Charts too small to read

    By Nancyobrennan
    I just bought this ebook tonight and started reading it. I know it's going to a good read because I had the paperback edition years ago. But the main reason I bought the ebook was for the charts. Unfortunately the charts are too small to read. I even got out my magnifying glass which isn't much help. I thought with my iPad I could expand them but no! I would not get the I edition again. Too bad.
