Do not buy this book it is garbage

This book is absolute garbage, it says nothing, it is full of half-baked and quarter baked idea is that if you actually listen to you will lose your shirt. This is just pure drivel that is put out there, That is full of half-truths and out right lies, and that is intended just to take your money under the guise of teaching you something. Please if you take nothing else from this review realize it's a waste of your time and money, they are books like market wizards, and reminiscences of the stock operator that you should get. Do not waste one second of your life on this POS

Four hours of random anecdotes ...

... hoped for insight, techniques, etc.

If you want a detailed description of trend trading's history, and listing of major players, this is your book.

If you want actionable information, keep looking -- you won't find it here.

Where does The Little Book of Trading rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've listened to this book many times and have the hardcover version as well. It's packed with lots of trend trader's history and stories.

What other book might you compare The Little Book of Trading to and why?

It's closest to The Speculators but goes specifically into trend trading.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There are lots of successful trend traders out there still making money to this day. All using mechanical or mostly mechanical systems.

Any additional comments?

It's interesting Covel never talks about details of actually trend trading. He's very general. But the methods for getting in and out of trades are so simple they're almost not worth getting into anyways. The idea of jumping on the big wave and riding it is a huge concept and will take a trader far. I had to read the turtle trader books to see the specific trend trading method details.

Covel is smart and tart

What did you love best about The Little Book of Trading?

Great review of the trend following methodology. Learn something new every time I review the trend following mantra. I'm a believer so I soak up every word. Please publish more like it.

Not What I Thought

Based on the title of the book I thought the book would give more details into the strategy. Not so in my opinion.
