If you are not a professional forecaster, but interested in forecasting, this book will stimulate and satisfy your interest. It shows you the kinds of charts and graphs to look at so that this is not merely arithmetic, but arithmetic supported by where to apply that arithmetic to take you to a forecast. It's about how to go from the data you have to the forecasts you need. It's not just formulas and methods.
