What sets this bookapart from many others in the space is the emphasis on realexamples as opposed to just theory. Concepts are not onlydescribed, they are brought to life with actual trading strategies,which give the reader insight into how and why each strategy wasdeveloped, how it was implemented, and even how it was coded. Thisbook is a valuable resource for anyone looking to create their ownsystematic trading strategies and those involved in managerselection, where the knowledge contained in this book will lead toa more informed and nuanced conversation with managers."

"Using an excellent selection of mean reversion and momentumstrategies, Ernie explains the rationale behind each one, shows howto test it, how to improve it, and discusses implementation issues.His book is a careful, detailed exposition of the scientific methodapplied to strategy development. For serious retail traders, I knowof no other book that provides this range of examples and level ofdetail. His discussions of how regime changes affect strategies,and of risk management, are invaluable bonuses."
