Perry Kaufman, author of New Trading Systems and Methods and A Short Course in Technical Trading

“The book is called an ‘Encyclopedia’ for a reason. In roughly 1000 pages, it contains 53 chart patterns plus 9 more event patterns which will pretty much cover you for any chart you come across…. if you take technical trading seriously, it is a book that should be on your shelf.”
