Positive Review of Book A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online

Thinking I could transfer my 20+ years of quite successful investing experience to a more active trading style, I started online trading about 8 months ago. Reading this book was like reading my own journal of the past 8 month's painful experience! Reading this book before I started may not have prevented me from making those mistakes, but it most likely would have helped me recognize them once made and stopped me from repeating them over and over, piling up ever more losses! Just as she describes, the good news is you do turn a corner to profitable trades once you learn some very basic but important lessons. This book can shorten that time for beginners.

Her section on Boot Camp is very good. Her system has rank beginners learning and up and running in 2 weeks what took me about 3-4 months to discover from everyone who would teach me.

There's also more than enough technical strategies presented which traders from beginners to more experienced ones can apply and use daily.

Her light humorous style makes this easier to read than most trading books without detracting from the serious message. If my sister or a good friend wanted to start trading, this would be the book I'd give them to read first.

Negative Review of Book A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online

Ms.Turner needs to cut down on her caffene. What starts out as a promising book on day trading quickly devolves into an infantile screaming and bragging session. She peppers practically every sentence with an exclamation mark as if all her words had world shattering implications. Sorry Tony, the only shattering you have done is with our patience. The book is filled with self-promotion and boasting and this wears thin quickly. She is not so much a successful day trader as much as a person who knows how to sell books. While her hyper style of teaching may work in a conference setting, it goes over as crude and condesending in print. She is not the end all be all of beginning day trading instruction books, as she would like to think, but only a small pebble on the beach of hundreds of get rich quick scheme books. It is unfortunate that I was duped into buying this book by the reviews written here. Don't be suckered, avoid this book and buy one that is more professional and easy to understand.
