    A Favorite of mine.

    Great to have around as a reference book. The fast moving, and fast growing field of options trading has a new spokesman. Lee breaks through the Wall Steet gibberish to explain the intricacies of options trading.

    Too many typos and redundant info...

    Very disappointed in the quality of the sample and won't invest this kind of money for something so poorly written!

    If its just a problem with the sample, I couldn't tell. Very frustrating reading.
