Recommends it for: Those who want to learn how to use stock options
This is an indispensable book for anyone wanting to earn money in the securities markets. I give it only three stars because it's one of the worst written books I've ever seen, bordering on incoherence at many points. Despite the atrocious prose, it explains four basic, powerful, and enormously lucrative strategies for using stock options. Any serious investor, wanting to improve his results, can benefit from this book. The four strategies are all conservative, seeking to profit by reducing risk ...more

A good book that shows you how to generate passive and portfolio income. The catch is, what are your money beliefs and what do you believe to be risk?

A very good source of information for anyone willing to start employing options into his or her stock strategies.

Trading options is not for beginner investors and should be researched thoroughly before ever trying it, and thi

I thought it was a great introduction to options. I would have liked to see some discussion about what to do when an options trade goes against you. Some of the strategies sound great, but I found that I can't even consider most of them because my brokerage won't let a beginner do more than write covered calls or buy cash secured puts.

Maybe I'm just incapable of understanding options trading analytics. I understand the principles behind the tradings and slowly becoming more familiar with the new language attached to it. However, this book is very basic and yet I'm still at a loss as far as how to analyze and strategize for successful opportunities to take advantage of.

Payoff trading. He doesn't show the real risk of options trading. You can have winning strategies for 11 months selling volatility and lose everything in just one month. No free lunch.
