I just bought and started reading Thomas Bulkowski's "Getting Started in Chart Patterns" after reading his current article in T/A of Stocks & Commodities. It's not listed in the book review section yet so I'll bring my question here. His "Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns" is listed and has great reviews on ET. However, the cost for the second edition is $100. I'm not above spending $100 on a useful book, I spent more than that for Tony Oz's "The Stock Trader" and almost that much for "McMillan on Options". But if it is the same stuff that is in Getting Started in Chart Patterns I'd rather get Nisson's "Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques" next, which also has great reviews on ET. Also, is Bulkowski's "Trading Classic Chart Patterns" worth looking into or is it also the same stuff as his other two? Like William O' Neil's books, I don't want to read the same book in different covers. I enjoy them the first time and don't want to get redundant. So far I like Bulkowski's "Getting Started" book. I've also read Jack Schwagger's "Getting Started in Technical Analysis" but found it to be very dry. So dry that I couldn't get into it. Bulkowski's book is much better suited for a remdial mind like mine.
