Positive Review of Book: Secrets For Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets

This book has completely changed by perspective on trading or investing (there's a difference). With either one, I believe you will find this book VERY helpful and practical (recognizing breakouts, when to buy, when to sell, cycles of a stock's life, market timing, shorting stocks, establishing safeguards, various order types, etc.).

The book has a heavy emphasis on analyzing charts. This is a major plus, but it's very practical, not numbingly theoretical. Weinstein is often compared to O'Neil in (momentum) investment style, but I find Weinstein's book much more systematic and well organized than anything I've read by O'Neil. I own 8 books about investing. This is the best, and the only one I go back to continually. Bottom line: my portfolio has grown 30% in two months using his methodology, and it's kept me from making a LOT of bad decisions. Don't let the date influence you. Start reading, and you will think he published it this year.

Negative Review of Book: Secrets For Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets

If you are not going to work at the center of the money making machine (NASDAQ floor) then it is a waste of money. I can sell you mine.
