Jeffrey Hirsch discusses how to capture market-beating returns by following specific stock market cycles
While predicting the direction of the stock market at any given point is difficult, it's a fact that the market exhibits well-defined and sometimes predictable patterns. While cycles do not repeat exactly all of the time, statistical evidence suggests that cyclical tendencies are very strong and should not be ignored by investors. The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will show you how to profit from these recurring stock market patterns and cycles.
Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, President of the Hirsch Organization and Editor-in-Chief of the Stock Trader's Almanac, this reliable resource explains why these cycles occur, provides the historical evidence behind them, and shows you how to capture consistent profits from them moving forward. In addition to describing his most widely followed cycles and patters, Hirsch also discusses both longer term boom-bust economic cycles and shorter term tendencies involving the best days, weeks, and months of the year to trade the market. The methods found here follow everything from presidential election cycles to the "Santa Claus" effect. Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, the pre-eminent authority on market cycles and seasonal patterns. The strategies explored are easy-to-implement, and based on research that has proven profitable over the course of time for investors looking to beat the buy-and-hold philosophy, The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will provide simple, actionable ideas that have stood the test of time and consistently outperformed the market..

Good information...not written very well
I do not believe this book is written very well. Also, a different reader should have been used.
If you are a novice or inexperienced in stock market cycles and looking to gain a better understanding in plain language, keep looking. This book, although very informative, is more for a mid to high level of experience and understanding.
Recommendation: take time explain concepts as if you are explaining them to an 8 y/o. May take a few more words and effort, but the clarity will be there. Also, clearly define a concept or word with examples before introducing another and providing comparison and compounding confusion.
Readers are most likely purchasing this book to receive clarity, not to make concepts more challenging.
