The subject of the book was 'delta neutral trading.' Although, I never would have guessed it from the title. There were very good graphs, but the text to back them up was scant. After reading the book, I had a sense of how to initiate a delta neutral trade, but had no idea of how to keep it delta neutral - a feature seemingly important to the author. I finished the book (having re-read some of the chapters) clearly puzzled about how the author initiates and completes a delta neutral trade.
