I have a kinship with Al that I realized when I first read his bio in the back of his book. I am also a doctor who left his profession to raise my two children, and have been a serious trader for many years. All I can say is that I already own his book and copies of every article and webinar he has done, and I have learned a great deal from him, though I have never spoken to him or met him. Owning an autographed copy of his book would mean a great deal to me...

Thank you,

I'm not a very creative person but here it goes...

Top 10 reasons why I think I NEED a signed copy of Mr. Brooks' excellent book:

10. Other traders are too busy to actually read his book

9. A "signed" copy just makes it cooler!

8. I'm actually trying to be creative writing this when there isn't a creative hair on my head (ok, I'm also bald)

7. I will actually appreciate this prize - I'm not just trying to get free stuff.

6. My wife thinks I'm insane but really I'm just a trader.

5. My copy of Reading Price Charts Bar by Bar is worn out - it's been on 3 trips with me, dropped in Pacific Ocean, ran over by a car, used to kill monster sized mosquitos, but yet is still at my bed side table for my nightly reading.

4. Why? Cause I'm saying "Please".

3. I like hoppy beer.

2. Having already read his book 5 times, I still need to re-read it another 5 times to fully grasp his concepts.

1. Price Action IS MY NEW RELIGION

I want the free book!

Why me? I really don't know what I'm doing!
This has finally occurred to me after blowing up several accounts, losing the confidence of my wife and children, and funding the college education of dozens of other traders. It's good to be generous, but this is absurd!
Here's some of my other sterling qualities that make me stand out as deserving of this fine book...
1) I'm bald.
2) I'm almost 59 and bald
3) I have no retirement, I'm almost 59 and bald.
4) I have 6 children who all agree that when I get in a wheel chair they will push me down the steps, I have no retirement, I'm almost 59, and did I mention? I'm bald.
There is much, much, more I assure you, but why bore you?
I could go on, and perhaps I should until you give me the book just to shut me up!
More about me? Montana Radio Cafe - Front Porch Music Served Fresh Daily. The bald guy in the picture? Yep, it's me.

In keeping with Alís 3 push pattern here are 3 things that I take away from Al in his room

1 Anticipate what a forming bar can have on the existing bars and pattern. Look for different offshoots of patterns and realize the best odds you get is 70%

2 Wait for the bar to finish because in the last seconds in can change dramatically

3 Itís just a job leave emotion out of it. There is nothing personal about getting trapped just get out and move on to the next trade

These 3 things have helped my trading enormously

I look forward to acquiring & reading the book. Some of his material is on the web, and he seems pretty straight forward.

I work in a steel mill. The oily sludge enviroment would make Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs run away and cry, yet this is where I study Al's book while on shift. As you can imagine my copy is oil and water stained. My wife won't even let me bring it into the house. A new copy to have for home use would make us both very happy.

Great website and congrats on your anniversary! I can already tell I be spending a lot of time here.
