Jacket Description:
“Marilyn's book is informative without being overwhelming and certainly "simplified" without becoming simplistic.  It's the book I would hand a friend or family member who is new to the forex trading world and wants to get introduced to it the right way.  It's an excellent foundation from which to begin your pursuit of successful forex trading.”

Raghee Horner, co-founder of EZ2Trade Software and author of "Forex Trading for Maximum Profit"

“This book is a refreshingly honest work that contains no hype or promises of easy money. Instead, Marilyn covers all of the bases in a truthful manner and gets right to the core issues that determine success or failure in the Forex market. This manual will serve as a much needed eye opener for those who have been 'blinded by the hype.”

Ed Ponsi, president of and author, "Forex Patterns and Probabilities"
