5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and with depth
Well, I wrote about 10 reviews on trading books so far, so that should clear off some doubts of the previous reviewer.
1-0 out of 5 stars You've got to wonder
Every reviewer rates this an exceptional book and every reviewer has only rated one book, this one. Isn't that strange (rhetorical question). I read a great many reviews of trading books; go to a book by Elder or one of the other market gurus and you'll find reviewers who have read and reviewed scads of trading books. There's of course no way for me to know, but maybe the author's real talent is writing trading book reviews.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best traders manual
I bought this book due to the excellent reviews and I agree with all the 5 stars that everyone has given it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth reading
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 Very good book
Excellent book. Well organized, and well written. Lots of pointers to other resources as well. Some web links are broken.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good book to understand what everybody else is doing
Well, where do I start?This book is useful to understand what every small time operator is doing in this business. You don't want to follow the crowd so I suggest you purchase this book and John Weiley Spiers Book "How Small Business Trades Worldwide".If you follow the techniques outlined by Weiss you're wasting your time, taking on too much risk, and making very little profits.I'm not saying you can't do it, for example, using trade bulletins to find buyers but so is everybody else!This is not an easy business if you do it this way.No real mention of the internet is made to make it useful nor does he focus too much on the marketing aspects which is the most important.Again, there are ways, and very few of them, to make some big profits.In a strange way, I am recommending this book so you understand what everybody else is doing to get into this business, and hopefully you don't follow. If someone is starting off in their own business, I highly recommend you start out as a Manufacturers representative and branch out as an importer/exporter as part of the overall business.[...]

3-0 out of 5 stars Baby steps
This book is fine for the very early entrepreneur. There is an entire chapter on choosing between forms of organization, buying office supplies and creating a logo. It's a good birds-eye-view of the import/export process, however, if you are a professional seeking insights and business solutions, you will not find many new ideas here. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the keys to becoming a better trader...
I've read all three books by Bill Williams and I think this is his best work.
3-0 out of 5 stars Worth reading
It's not the trading methodology that makes this book valuable. Whenever I reread it I completely skip that part. As a matter of fact, in his next book "Trading Chaos Second Edition" Bill pretty much admits the system underperforms in current market conditions and makes the very significant refinement of using a counter-trend signal that he refers to as a "divergent bar" for first entry. He says without saying it in that book that those following the method in this book will be "late and have a difficult time making any money."

5-0 out of 5 stars Most comprehensive in the market
As the title suggests, this is a documentation book and does this job really well.I bought this book as a novice without any knowledge of the procedure and I can comment that now I have good knowledge of the process.Small companies can benefit and may need only 1/4 of this book and large organizations can search from the huge pile of information.Even if you are starting out a small export business, this is one book you should refer to.

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding practical reference for active exporters.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide to technical analysis
For anyone interested in a technical rather than fundamental approach to trading (like we are), this book has to be considered the definitive text.Although oriented around futures trading, all the information presented is equally relevant to any instrument type with a little thought and adaptation.
3-0 out of 5 stars A great reference
I found other books on TA to be more useful for reading straight through and overcoming the learning curve on TA (e.g. Technical Analysis Explained, Martin Pring *****).

5-0 out of 5 stars Mandatory
It is precisely what it claims to be. If you're going to come over here, you should read it. So much information, all in one place. My life would've been much easier if I'd read this five years ago, but perhaps Who Moved My Rice? wouldn't be quite so much fun.
4-0 out of 5 stars A consultant's review
Excellent guidelines, especially for larger corporations.Can be used by smaller companies that have some expertise in international business, or that are working with a consultant in the subject area.I plan to use it as reference in my classes for small business on the subject of initiating business in China.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and wonderfully practical
As someone who was about to embark on business in mainland China, and who has never ventured further north than Hong Kong, this book has been a god-send.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Condition & On time
It is on time and the book is in good condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars The current standard
In my opinion this is the best book currently available for a graduate course in real-trade theory. I have already used it twice in class and my students have invariably preferred it to other recent works available, e.g., K.Y. Wong or Bhagwati et al. Compared to these, this book is better written and focuses judiciously on the models that yield the sharpest conclusions and most relevant insights. Discussions of the significance of gravity models, foreign investments, political economy, free trade areas, and institutional factors in trade (e.g., ethnic networks) are particularly clear and up to date compared with other texts.2-0 out of 5 stars Advanced International Trade: Theory and Evidence
I really expected far more from this textbook. It adds very little to already existing graduate textbooks on trade. It is not useful for graduate students that want to understand the literature of the 2000s. It assumes you already know the material. It debotes a lot of space to the old literature at the expense of the new one. This is a field that has changed significantly. Frankly, I find hard to see its value added. ... Read more

The structure is good, topics are comprehensive, style is concise.
3-0 out of 5 stars Tradeoff in practicality for information
This book turned out to be quite different from what I was expecting.By the cover, I thought it would be about finding a brokerage account, and then getting set up to trade away.To my surprise it was more of an educational textbook than a "do it yourself" guide for individual investors.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for open economy macroeconomics
We used this book in a one semester graduate class for International Economics. We used the book mostly for open economy macro as opposed to trade theory i.e. Chapter 16 & on. Like our professor told us, the book builds on concepts in a gradual fashion starting from the Marshall-Lerner condition right up to the Dornbusch Overshooting Model covering along the way, the basic Keynesian framework, Mundell-Fleming framework and, the policy assignment problem. The concepts helped us trace the causes for UK's renouncement of the Exchange Rate Mechanism in 1992 (and also how George Soros made his billions!). Using the book in this integrated fashion (Theory + Case Study) makes it a valuable addition to one's library.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Big Picture Missed
Currently I am a student of Professor Jones, one of the text's authors.The text is as drawling and insufficient as Jones' lectures.My first complaint is that there is a crisis of definition.Having only taken one economics course prior, I find that the text tends to move too quickly through topics of international economics, failing to provide illustrative examples so one can better understand how theory is put into practice.Second, the conceptual framework, as in all classical economic theory, is rooted in a place far from reality, a point Jones fails to make clear. The world is not perfectly competitive and does not contain countries equipped with fully developed capitalist institutions (like banking and credit), necessary to make internal economic adjustments in the face of free trade prices.I find the utility of the course to be very low, especially when free-trade is non-existent in the world.Discussions on the state of the contemporary world are sorely needed, if at least to serve as as comparison to the theoretical one constructed by this text. My last complaint is Jones' characterization of "anti-globalizers," those who he claimed "rioted" and were "violent" on the streets of Seatle in 1999 during the meeting of the WTO.The irony is that many of those protesters were advocating for FREER trade, pointing out that US farm subsidies cripple the economies of some underdeveloped nations who primarily produce agricultural commodities. The text's mypopic view of economics will not help those interested in learning how the world economy actually operates.

3-0 out of 5 stars One of the better critiques of complete free trade
Stiglitz is certainly a critic of the free trade ideology but his arguments are much more intellectually robust than I see from either the economic nationalists like Lou Dobbs or the anti-globalization movement (and those two are distinct among themselves).He doesn't favor developed world protectionism, and actually makes a few strong points against it. However his proposals do respond to some of the claims of the anti-globalization movement even if he doesn't accept their quasi-Marxist outlook in total.
5-0 out of 5 stars A radical new trade model
The authors state rightly that trade policies should be designed to raise living standards and to integrate developing countries into the world trading system. Global poverty (more than 2 billion people live on less than a dollar a day) is the world's most pressing problem.
5-0 out of 5 stars very interesting - a great global economics intro
You don't have to be an economist to realise that the World Trade Organisation is failing the poorest countries. But this book is a compelling explanation of what is going wrong, and the best case yet for change.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dead On
I work for a Japanese company that is mentioned in this book and the book is a dead on diagnosis of how Japanese companies are managed. For anyone familiar with the current Japanese economy (which is in a huge depression) there are some major problems with how the Japanese economy operates.There is nothing inherently genius about the solution that Porter offers, which is simply a call for a true free market system in Japan; free of tariffs, trade barriers, cartels, and collusion.However, if you work for a Japanese company I strongly suggest buying this book to understand why your company is managed the way it is.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Gloriously Fun Marriage of History, Technology and Economics - a Real Page Turner
The only reason I give this book 5 stars is because I can't give it 6!This blessed relief from boring, tedious economic tomes is the best of it's kind since "The Incredible Bread Machine."
5-0 out of 5 stars Even-handed intro to why the rich are rich and the poor poor
The author shows how new technologies and political clout have worked to insolate USA farmers from both the risks of the marketplace and the risks of farming.The advantage over impoverished farmers in Africa, is not simply that farmers in the United States receive subsidies, but farmers in the United States have organized to efficiently eliminate waste in the production process.They have turned waste into multiple streams of profit. In addition, they organize to lobby congress for relief from various kinds of risks and, of course, from taxes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Medici Conspiracy is amazing!
The Medici Conspiracy by Peter Watson is an amazing account, thoroughly researched, beautifully written, with marvelous photographs.It is literally a fascinating mystery, revealed and solved.I applaud the Italians and commend Oscar White Muscarella for his life-long good fight.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Like the Movies, but Real Life
When you have something small, easily moved, requires no special handling such as refrigeration, very valuable, and willing customers, it's pretty easy to guess what happens.
