Clar-I-Ty More than 1 year ago
This book I found to be of virtually no value. I know very little about options and bought the book with the expectation that it would explain the concepts clearly enough so that a novice could understnd them. Perhaps the biggest fault of the book is that it makes statements but doesn't illustrate what is meant with examples. After struggling through the first 71 pages, I gave it up as a waste of time. The book did provide me with one piece of information that I found useful. In the third chapter it recommended checking out a website that has some clearly written material far better suited to a beginner. The website is www.optionscentral.com Incidentally, I edited high school science texts for 25 years and know a clearly written book when I see one.
