Mostly filler!

For me it only had one or two interesting tips that could have been summed up in one paragraph. The rest of the book was filler and not really worth the money.

Must have for beginners.

Before I purchased, I contemplated is it worth spending the money? After having listened to it all, more than worth it. I've realized if your going to be stingey with investing in your own education, then forget about it. You'll never make it.

Really informative

I purchased this book to educate myself before investing. I knew the basics but didn't really have a plan of attach. This book has really helped me to slow down and consider how I can be successful (including what that means to me). I cannot figure out how to access the supplemental documents yet, unfortunately. However, the strategies listed are simple enough to understand that I can figure it out.

Good but could have been better

This book is good for understanding the Forex market better. It has actually changed my perception to the market from a very dangerous and unexpectable market to a very predictable market that can be utilized to increase my monthly income or even to invest in it after my retirement.

The disadvantages are that it omits so many important details especially on charts and charts' reading. It focused on one chart only (The Double Bollinger Bands) and did not mention enough details about other famous and important charts (Stochastic, RSI, ADX, MACD, Momentum, etc.). While the first chapters have been utilized to provide introductory materials about trading in general, it would have been utilized better if it talked about charts and technical indicators, the pros and cons of each, and what benefit does each one provide. But to be fair with the author, she has mentioned another book to refer to when seeking for more details on charts and it is called "The Art of Charts Reading".

A very useful introduction to Forex

I am relatively new to the Forex market, and found this audiobook both a timely review of my scant knowledge with some important additions such as the proper use of Bollinger bands, moving average data, and the importance of fundamentals, planning, and the best time to enter and exit trades. I found some parts a little confusing where there is reference to a chart, which of course I can't see. I can listen to that chapter again of course. Walter does a good enough job, though it would have been nice to have a lady narrator, or even Kathy herself. I suspect this was done to appeal to a wider audience? The 'got it, get it, good' catchphrase soon lost its appeal. Her other book is now on my wish list. Enough said.
