My after reading review (November 29, 2022):- Recently, I am trying to learn order flow, volume profile etc. for market analysis. This type of analysis is totally new to me. Previously I knew only fundamental analysis and technical analysis. Fundamental analysis is good for long term investing, what I don't do right now. And I didn't find technical analysis any helpful for me to predict the market. So, I move on to a different kind of market analysis, hoping that it may work for me. 

To learn volume profile, order flow chart, depth of market etc. I am continuously spending my time on different online video courses and on different books. I read this book hoping that I could learn some valuable stuff from it. But unfortunately I didn't get anything helpful from this book except some new terminologies and a few basic concepts about volume profile.
I am not sure if my brain is not smart enough to learn the topic or if the book is not so well written. Also the author is trying to sell some of his additional courses and his own software applications in this book here and there. The book is not for any general charting software of your choice. The author is trying to push you to buy his charting software subscription plan. He is also mentioning that to get in depth knowledge you need to purchase his additional hidden video courses. That means the book is not in depth. The book didn't cover everything you need to know to start your trading.
That means I have to find other books and more online courses to master the skill.

[Book 70] Boxing Mastery: Advanced Technique, Tactics, and Strategies from the Sweet Science

My after reading review (November 10, 2022):- I am shocked that there are not many books on boxing training. It's not that boxing is a new sport that is not so popular. But still you wouldn't find any good boxing learning books. Most of them are about boxing, history of boxing, boxing encyclopedia, biography and advice of some famous boxers etc. And not a single book is going to help you to practice boxing.

Anyhow, I have got this book called "boxing mastery" written by Mark Hatmaker. I can't say it's a great book but where there is no book, getting a book like that is okay.

This is not a complete book. It's a part of the author's boxing books series. This part basically covers strikes and defense mechanisms. To learn counter strikes and other stuff you need to read his other book of this series.

The book starts with basics of stances, footwork and guards as it should be. It also covers variations of punches and defensive mechanisms. 

However, the best part of reading this book is that I had so many confusions about so many concepts. The book helps me to get rid of those confusions. Those are basically - hinge principle, fainting, drawing, pivoting and waltzing, shifting, shuffling, infighting and shelling up, clinching etc.
