This book is for the dedicated reader, November 2, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: All About Options (Paperback) I think this book is quite good for "serious" beginners. But at the same time if you are a person who starts yawning on seeing a delta or gamma, you better stick with Ken Roberts and Cook's books. For as one reviewer has rightly said those are good for light entertainment and fantasy, etc.. But if you want to learn the ropes then there is no way out except falling in love with deltas and gammas. There is no free lunch.

several clients have used this book to get started, July 26, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: All About Options (Paperback) We have referred several of our clients to Mr. McCafferty's book and they have all given it a thumbs up! He starts with the simple strategies and works his way up to more complicated strategies. He includes money management plans and how to implement your own trading plan, as well as how to integrate new software packages into your trading plan. We mail this book to clients who need help with options. This book is a must for new option traders!

A MUST READ FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN OPTIONS!!, August 12, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: All About Options (Paperback) I have read a couple of option books and this is by far and away the most comprehensive of the books that I have read on options and option trading. This book has made a somewhat sticky subject easy.
