Yeah, I've got to admit this is the first month, we've struggled to give away the books. Perhaps the pressure to actually read a book and review it within a month is just too much. As someone who's been guilty of buying books on a whim, but never getting much further than the first few pages, I can sort of relate to that.

I'd love a copy of this book, but alas, i've not yet completed reading let alone submitting a review of the Livermore book.

I blame 12hr rolling shifts on demanding jobs for my lack of available free time.

@MajorMagnuM, that should be fine.. ideally a month, as then you can pick up the next month's review offer; but I think a couple of months is still reasonable. Shall I put you down?

How many pages is the book? ie is it as long as EWP by prechter? if so it would take me months. I imagine the best person for the job is someone who already can pf. when i signed up i did so to learn the charting method then report on its ease of access and was not aware of the time limit

Reasons for reviewing/not reviewing certain books

Yeah, I've got to admit this is the first month, we've struggled to give away the books. Perhaps the pressure to actually read a book and review it within a month is just too much. As someone who's been guilty of buying books on a whim, but never getting much further than the first few pages, I can sort of relate to that.

Having reviewed one book I am happy to review others. I think this is a good idea and opportunity.

However there are reasons for not reviewing some books. For many it will be the time constraint, especially if a review is required in 30 days. For me I decided not to review this book or the tennis book because:
- P&F does not suit the style that I use, although I accept that may be a good reason to review a book because it might reveal new insights
- There are 200 pages of P&F to read, so you need time and dedication to the subject
- Tennis - I am not interested In tennis at all, so less so on a trading book which tries to use tennis terminology to apply to trading
- Tennis - I took a look at the preview and could not understand the tennis analogies and I think it is a bit of a gimmick, so I would have a natural dislike for the book to begin with

Anyway the point of this message is to say that there are definitely other works I would review. It is a good way, after all, to getting free copies :)
