4-0 out of 5 stars Pearls of wisdom - encrypted over and over
First off let me assure you that Mark Douglas deserves all the generally positive reviews he's received for this book and for "Trading in the Zone."What Douglas has to share is essential, extremely valuable information for both aspiring and veteran traders alike.That said, stand warned that Mr. Douglas has quite a tedious writing style.He suffers (and thereby, so does the reader) from a particularly diffuse, circular, and repetitive style.He gives redundant a bad name.Here's a sample, you be the judge:

5-0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life!!!
Well, maybe it didn't exactly change my life, but it gave my law firm a new direction. My firm specializes in strategic transactions - initial public offerings, private placements, mergers & acquisitions - but we had steered clear of reverse mergers because of the uncertainty and confusion. Feldman and Dresner cleared up that confusion we now offer reverse mergers as part of our services.
5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book
This is a most informative book and tells you how to do it. The concept is mysterious at first but is clearly explained in this book. It is a must for anyone considering taking his business public. I highly recomend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent investment if you're interested in reverse mergers
If you want to know the right way to organize and structure Reverse Mergers, this is the book to go for. It's an excellent up to date reference as well as a guidebook of do's, don'ts and "tricks of the trade"; even better, it's written so both newbies and professionals can benefit from it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Give Credit Where Credit Is Due
As a financial professional who strives daily to help my clients make smart choices about their money, I am impressed by Bill's personalized approach to helping people take control of their lives by showing them ways to create and implement a viable foundation for their ideal financial future.There are many approaches of course, perhaps infinite, to planning wisely for your future.No one method or process is perfect.However, if you're truly serious about taking financial control over your future, whether you invest for yourself or work with a competent professional, then seek ideas and methods that are focused on helping YOU fulfill what's important to you in life.Bill's work talks directly about doing this and in beneficial ways that can help you make real progress towards achieving your lifetime goals and fulfilling your values.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid and broad-picture financial book for investors
Bachrach does a great job at helping investors identify their own personality type and recognize what is really important to them in investing.You wont find stock tips in this book but you will find the tools needed to create an overall roadmap and financial plan to help you meet your true root financial goals.This is the important part.One of my favorite points that Mr. Bachrach makes, one that I emphasize with people I advise is that there are certain things you can't hire someone to do for you: spending time with your family, exercise, travel etc.There are some things you can delegate- financial planning is one of them.Bill Bachrach also has a healthy and objective view about advice for investors who are not sure if they want to use the services of an advisor.
5-0 out of 5 stars Live your life following what's most important- Your Values
Bill Bachrach's book can help all investors, young and old, to reach all their financial goals so they can live the best possible life.Because everyone is different, that best life will be different for everyone.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Develop Advanced Financial Modeling Skills
As a university teacher of strategic corporate finance and optimal investment, I have watched the financial industry analytics transcend hand calculation with financial calculators to financial modeling with spreadsheet software. Depending on whether the financial specialty is in corporate or banking/brokerage, the job skills requirement can range from corporate cost control to optimal portfolio design. Thus, modeling skills services both company research and financial planning.

I took a course at my university requiring this book. What I found most useful is the numerous updated examples and cases that the author provided. In addition, the discussion is objective and thought-provoking.

4-0 out of 5 stars Littletext.com switch
Ordered this book from Littletext.com as a new hard cover and recieved a softcover international addition.I wouldn't mind using international version since there is hardly any difference, but don't bait and switch on me I don't like it.I'd buy from someone else if the price was within a couple bucks. Got my book not from Chicago as advertised, but Thailand.However it was delivered in no time.

3-0 out of 5 stars Too much self-reference
I had this book for one of my classes at my University this semester, and although the content of the book is concise and updated, nonetheless the authors rely too much on self-reference. The book is written too much froma "USA is superior" perspective. I also found some errors such astranslations from other languages that were completely off. If you have toget this book for Intl. Business it is overall a good book, but if you canget a better one, do so. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well written!
The problem with most books dealing with Economics is that they are poorly presented and not enjoyable to read, being stuffed with incomprehensible graphs and technical jargon. This book avoids those pitfalls and is both entertaining and informative. Alfred Marshall would be proud.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cogent rundown on why the economy matters to you personally
In this brief, cogent book, author Tim Harford provides an accessible, entertaining introduction to economic thinking. This deftly written report belongs on the shelf of anyone with an interest in economic matters - and as the author makes clear, everyone has an interest in economic matters. He deftly punctures the balloons of those who advocate fair trade coffee, protectionism, government-underwritten medical care and other such policies. These tactics may seem humane on the surface, but he contends that they often merely advance the selfish goals of the few at the expense of the many. If the book has a weakness, it is Harford's tendency to take certain points of political opinion for granted and to state them as moral choices without qualification or proof. For instance, he puts forth the admirable - though some would say questionable - notion that governments are obliged to cushion the shock of unemployment. That, however, is a quibble. We highly recommend this concise, comprehensive book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating discovery of the interconnectiveness of everything
It is entirely possibly if I had had access to book like this when I was growing up, I would have become an economist. Harford takes apart many of the conundrums in our modern world and shows how trends, political and corporate decisions have all shaped the world in which we live in.

I used Stock&Watson for my first undergraduate econometrics course. I liked it at the time but as I advance in time series I find that one could be much better prepared in this area from an intro course. Time series is a very interesting and big area and using Stock&Watson for the first course in econometrics gives one the impression that it is only a side topic. ... Read more

This textbook is the best intermediate to advanced statistics textbook currently available on the market today.The Excel instructions are self explanatory and include every step needed to apply a particular statistical procedure.The instructions for calculating joint probability tables and constructing tree diagrams are excellent and easy to follow.The example problems include all the steps.The notation used is simple,direct and straightforward.It will not cause any confusion for a student.The handling ofp-values in hypothesis testing and multiple regression analysis is very well done.Based on my extensive teaching experience at the college and university level,I would highly recommend this book to a student, who is taking a statistics course that emphasizes applications, at the intermediate to advanced level. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Subjective and unconvincing
I purchased this book many years ago when i was market uneducated and market naive and believed that I was missing something as I could never make the connections the author has made throughout his book. After years of studying the markets and attempting to trade profitably, I have revisited this book once again and am just as annoyed with the conclusions the author has made. I am confidant that my work resolves the wave like behavior that defines price movement more precisely than the author. Perhaps it was the clean slate with which I began my research. From what I can gather, people were attracted to the wave analysis because of the author but unfortunately his thesis has proven to be ineffective for traders. As a member of the technician's society I have hoped to introduce my ideas regarding this subject to the author and convince him my approach is more applicable than his. I am embarrassed to announce that this is not even my full time job as real estate consumes much of my time and trading is merely a hobby. Just think if I were able to devote full time. Regardless this book fails just as it did the first read many years ago.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and cool, but impractical to apply
I read this book after becoming very interested in Robert Prechter's doctrine from an interview he did in a magazine. He has a different way of discussing wave theory, one that concentrates on the whys of crowd psychology. It's absolutely fascinating stuff and well worth reading.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Guide
Before I took a serious look at Elliot Wave technical analysis, I was of the (common I believe) opinion that it didn't work, wasn't specific enough, and was a couple of steps down from Voodoo in my list of `sound trading methods to think about using'.All that changed when I took a serious look at Elliott Wave International and specifically the book Elliott Wave Principle (EWP) by Frost and Prechter.

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful in the real world
I used the 7th edition in the business math class I took. The class was listed under the BUS designation, and was not intended for those above the 096 level in math. I took it at a community college as part of a certificate program. The first 4 chapters were review and the balance was the class. The chapters were well written and the practice problems useful. There are many problems for each chapter.
1-0 out of 5 stars An elementary approach to a college class
I am teaching a business math class and was issued this text book by the college.While reviewing the book I found it to be more confusing than helpful.I found the majority of the ideas presented in the book to be of common knowledge.Rather than presenting the concepts in the book in an analytical manner, the author uses a personal narrative to convey the ideas.The author introduces new concepts with successive chapters, but does not explain how these concepts are derived.The author explains concepts at face value, rather than explaining how the concepts come about and how to apply them to other situations outside of the ideal situation.The first 6 chapters or so, out of a total of 22, are a review of basic math skills starting with addition and subtraction of whole numbers and continue to basic uses of percents.In addition to those 6 chapters, more of the successive chapters become redundant and are not presented in a logical order.Integrated into the text are numerous amounts of extraneous articles that are meant to reinforce the underlying point, but instead simply add bulk and distraction to the text.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, easy to follow DVD!
What can I saw but this is an awesome book. I never did get past chapter one though because I found out that my previous grade was enough to meet a requirement so I figured why take it again? (Got a D+ originally, with a different book).

5-0 out of 5 stars A clear path to personal accountability-- no question about it
If you like your self-help advice in a quick-to-read, easy-to-digest format, you'll enjoy this sequel to the book, QBQ! The Question Behind the Question. In his first book, author John G. Miller explained that instead of whining, "Why does everything bad happen to me?" you should take responsibility and ask yourself, "What can I do to improve my situation?" That's the QBQ, and asking it stops you from blaming and complaining, and empowers you to find your own solutions. In this book, Miller takes personal accountability up a notch, and teaches you how to improve your relationships at home and at work by adopting the five "Advantage Principles: learning, ownership, creativity, service and trust." At times, the book can get a bit preachy, but the examples are entertaining and the advice is simple, clear and solid. If you're looking for a fast shot of effective, feel-good self-help advice, we recommend Miller's accessible program. Or to pose the question his way: if your QBQ is, "What can I read to learn how to solve my own problems?" this book is your answer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Shallow and Poorly Written
QBQ is common sense.For a top motivational speaker I would expect a little more depth than three paragraph chapters with little gems of wisdom culled from office banter or internet rumors.I'm sure there are other authors out there who write about personal responsibility and accountability and have more to offer....
5-0 out of 5 stars Just like QBQ! - simple, effective - and deep!
Each employee at our manufacturing consulting firm receives a copy of QBQ! to read.We have a short dialogue and its contents are referenced daily. Every time I listen to Miller's "book on tape" CD or re-read QBQ!, something new hits home.I have shared these books as gifts with employees and friends and with my family as well. From my wife to each of the four children ages 22 to 14. It makes a difference at all levels and now Flipping the Switch, Miller's new book, is also wonderful and being read by all!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great biography book
This book is a very good read to say at least -- nicely written with good details of Warren Buffett's mentality, strategy, and learning process.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unique account of Buffett's rise to financial stardom
A rare account of Buffett's life and financial ventures, detailing several milestones in the evolution of Buffett from wiz kid to financial guru.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent financial biography
Buffett is a fantastic biography on one of the 20th century's most well-known investors. Far from being just a financial volume or a how-to-invest-like-Buffett, Lowenstein's work is a genuine biography, and a very well-written one at that.That's not to say one cannot learn something about Buffett's investing style by reading this book; in fact, I believe I learned more about how the man has been so successful from this book than from any other source on Buffett.

3-0 out of 5 stars More appropriate for intermediate to advance readers
For someone who is new to probability theories and statistics, you might consider something else more basic and introductory.I've had classes in probability and number theories in college.This book stumped me.It could be retitled: Cartoons for Statisticians.Definitely not a book for beginners as it may have been intended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro to Stats
Stats isn't an easy thing to learn, but the Cartoon Guide to Stats is the easiest way to learn the basics.In particular it makes hypothesis testing clear.Hypothesis testing is often one of the more difficult areas for new stats students to understand.
4-0 out of 5 stars Fun & worthwhile
This book is, in fact, full of cartoons but, even so, is actually a useful statistics book.I am a chemist who has long forgotten her math and this book was suggested to me by a co-worker who was given the book (earlier edition) by her sister (a medical person).So, this book has a long history of being helpful to those of us in technical fields who are not math experts but who need occasional help with stats. ...
