I love this book I mean I love this book. First of all the Author is well known for writing many books that I have also read but this book particularly is about one of my favorite financial tools Options. I started learning options trading back in 2009 around the housing collapse because there were a lot of stocks that were under priced. I wanted to leverage my money without the use of margin, and stretch my cash without being totally at risk. This book showed me strategies that I didn't know existed about the option trading techniques. I have since then used this book and others to help me make tons of money in the options trading and i recommend anyone beginning their adventure into trading options to pick up the book and check it out.

This is the first book we purchased several years ago for our trade group to learn the basics of options and to execute some elementary trades to get our feet wet so to say. The book covers the basic types of options, their risk profiles,time decay and other basic elements required in any option trade. Although we benefited from this book in understanding option instruments, we were unable to execute successful trades with the information in this book alone. We realized that unless one understands the behavior of the underlying security with answers to such questions as : Is the stock showing technical strength?.Is there a high positive or negative sentiment on the stock as seen in put/call ratios and short interest?. Is the stock undergoing accumulation or distribution? Etc,etc.; becoming consistently profitable in options will remain a challenge. To our surprise we found less than a handful of books that combine the underlying stock's technical picture with option information...
