    I found this to be a entertaining and informative book. The detail regarding
    commodities and how they trade is helpful and keeps the marketplace in perspective.
    There are helpful hints throughout the book. The descriptions of interactions
    between commodities and equities were an eye-opener for me. The authors' depth of
    understanding comes across throughout the book.
