I wasted time and money on both of Covell's books. He doesn't give up the good stuff in either, you have to buy his Trend Following course for that.You will not "learn to make millions in Up or Down Markets". I don't understand the mass of positive reviews for this book. It tells the story about Richard Dennis and the Turtles but not their methods, that will cost you $1,200.I made a mistake buying this book, don't you repeat it.
Just started Curtis Faith's book from which I am already getting more facts.

I found 'Trend Following' to be an immensely enjoyable and well researched book. It is packed with valuable insights from many of the most successful financial traders in modern times, and also covers the financial crash of October 2008. It is an extremely informative book that is very easy to read. The various chapters are supported by a wealth of interesting tables and charts. Trend Following is an absolute 'must-read' and is superb value for money.

This book totally blows open what and how trend following is the way forward in this very old market perception of buy and hold. Michael delves into lots of juicy statistics for successfull trend followers and realises how these guys are making the money when everyone else is losing it! Need i say more. A must read for anyone who has a general interest in markets and more so for someone getting into the trend following business. Well done Michael.

I bought and read this book because I am interested in profiting from trend following, but all this book says is basically that trend following works, which is pretty obvious to anyone who can read charts. All he does is bombard us with loads of charts and endless stories about alleged trend followers. It would have been better to analyse a particular trading system.
I give it one star because he takes 400 pages to say something that could have been said in one page.
Don't waste your money on this book.

Format: Paperback
As a few other people have noted, this book contains virtually nothing of real, material value. There are plenty of stories about trend following and how it's so wonderful, plus people who have made money out of it. However, there is no information about how to spot trends, the use of indicators like MACD's or RSI's, etc. to identify entry or exit points or indeed, anything of real use at all.

After finishing the book, I went through it again to see if I'd missed something - but I hadn't, aside from some stories and vague pieces of advice, there's nothing here.

If you wish to read it, try and get a copy through your library but trust me, don't waste money on buying it.

It a good background read, even if very frustrating because the author never really gets to meat and potatoes of how to actually trend trade. I would have liked to see a large range of examples of entries and exits using a trend following approach; like what Dr. Elder's book 'Entries and Exits' does. This book focuses on persuading the doubters and 'buy and hold' readers that trend following is a better approach. It is not for those of us who want to actually trade in that way. Disappointing that the author either does not have the detailed experience or has deliberately held back this information. There is a very short piece in one of the appendices, showing an example of a trend following strategy, but why only one and why so brief? Without those few pages near the end, the book would have been largely a waste of my time, except that it has raised my awareness of and curiosity about trend following.

Format: Paperback
Whether you are a seasoned investor or not, Michael Covel's "Trendfollowing" is a well written and easily understood book which highlights one of the most enduring methods of capital appreciation available today. It is full of real-life returns going back over 20 to 30 years, mostly from managers still in business which says a lot. It's one of the first books I recommend to traders who are just starting out and looking for a bit of quality inspiration.

This book is basically a very long propaganda of the trend following advantages. I read it once quickly and then got into it again thinking that I may have missed something initially but nope - apart from defending the trend following approach there is no practical help "to make millions".
