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.

Excellent book, no reservations. I have been trading stock options for several years, and started trying the author's "all-star" strategy which he calls "option credit spreads" immediately. After about 6 months of experimenting followed by serious use it has become my primary strategy and generally nets me several thousand per month. Highly recommended!

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.
