No I cannot, and I absolutely meant no disrespect. But when I think of genius of the pen when it comes to trading books, I guess I am more inclined to go with Sheldon Nattenburg or Peter Berstein, or maybe even Mark Douglas (I only own 2), simply because of his ability to make you delve into yourself and make you realize you won't be successful unless you know who you are. Hell I may even go with Soros's The Alchemy of Finance, especially as it deals with Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and the round about way that relates to the markets.
But I digress, and you have sold me. I have learned that if you dig it, I probably will also. I have Trend Following on my droid's kindle, but will most likely check out his most recent book first.
But what I have mentioned before, and for some reason still haven't touched is more of DeMark's writings. I have developed more of a market making mentality lately, but not necessarily mean reversion, if that makes sense. And I would like to read all of his books.
Anyway, so much to read, and so little time.
As far as the holiday wishes, I reciprocate. All of the best to you and yours, sir.
If your interested in taking the time to read DeMark, please let me suggest "DeMark Indicators" by Jason Perl. Perl goes much deeper into the indicators with actual ideas on entry and especially stop losses. It's a shorter book and if your stepping into "DeMark" for the first time, its as good of place as any to start.
It's published by Bloomberg
I have to totally agree with you about Mark Douglas. "Trading in the zone" is probably the most important book on trading (and life) I have ever read. It has sent me down the path of self realization, leading my to many others.
Best of trading to you too sir,
