When I became interested in automated trading, this was the first book I read after a couple of ebooks. After Kevin's book, I read five other books on the topic but Kevin's book was the most helpful one to me by far.
Building a picture perfect backtest equity curve is very easy. A trader will probably make many mistakes while creating that. Kevin writes about the possible mistakes and how to prevent them one by one.
If you're just starting to autotrade, some of the concepts might be hard to grasp at first. At least that was the case for me. Some parts weren't clear to me and Kevin sent me further explanations via email.
If you're beginning to autotrade, this book will save you so much money. If you're an experienced trader, I'm quite sure you'll find parts from the book that'll boost your results.

I have read a lot about the theory of automated trading (entries and exits, money management, Pardo, Stridsman, Fitscher, Tomassini, Putt Book, etc).
Kevin's book is the first one that shows me how to tie everything together to create automated trading systems.
This book helped me to create my first automated trading system in Tradestation.
From the book, I also got the impression of Kevin's honesty, so I decided to take Kevin's webinar as well (since I wanted to go faster). My aim was to get Kevin's 6-month personalized guidance (I am a newbie to Tradestation, and this is my first time into automated trading). For me, it was either spend the money here, or the market will take it anyway.
Well, all I can say is that I am getting great value. Kevin's help is on-time and straight to the point. His knowledge on things has saved me heaps of time and heartache. I feel that I am on the right track.
Anyway, just my review of his book. I highly recommend it if you are ready to walk the talk.
