One of the Best Computer Books ever


This was definitly one of the best computer books that I ever read! It may be a little fast for someone who has never had C++ or Java before, but it is still a good buy. Lots of screen shots, code snippits, and the like.
Great Book!!!

Weak Document Object Model examples and explanation


But I am too busy to enjoy reading through mountains of pages to find what I need. This book is especially weak with trivial examples, and their (D)ocument (O)bject (M)odel explanation section was especially shallow. Index was not so intuitive either, since you must already know the keyword of what you are looking for. This book is great for theoreticans and academic people. I need a book to get my work done quickly as I have too much to do. The technically depth was atypical of Oreilly.

Title: Tradings Systems That Work: Building and Evaluating Effective Trading Systems
Publisher: McGraw-Hill
Authors: Thomas Stridsman
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
excellent, practical advice for the mature system developer


Stridsman's work reads like a lab book recollection of his experimentations rather than a systematic study of creating profitable trading systems. The text is repetitive, and filled with illogical analogies and examples. His conclusions are based on some dubious suppositions -- he seems to lack a strong grasp of the statistical analysis he employs.
Among the benefits of the book are Stridsman's adherence to standard deviation in assessing system risk and his use of percentage measurements rather than absolute dollar values.
This book could be 75% shorter and still contain all the worthwhile information.
I would recommend Conway and Behle's "Professional Stock Trading" as a much clearer approach to creating trading systems.
