Would you buy a cookbook from someone who claims to be a chef, who clearly understands the ingredients and components of a good meal, but just couldn't make a delicious dish?

Here's my story. It was late 2010. I had about $10k to invest, but always thought I could do it on my own, without the need for a financial advisor. After all, if they understood markets, shouldn't they all be rich? I read books, articles, anything I could find to learn about how the markets worked and different approaches to investing. I discovered there are many "markets," but an even greater number of alleged strategies to extract money from those markets. I needed to find a niche. I came across this book and decided that the leverage afforded by buying calls and puts would provide the % return I was looking for on my small account.

After reading this book, I then came across one of Wendy's websites, which had a spreadsheet-type of document alleging that Wendy made over $100,000 in 2010 trading options.

At the time, I didn't question those results. It seemed trustworthy because Wendy seemed trustworthy. I then noticed she was trying out a new service where she would "auto-trade" accounts for 12 months using her "P3 squeeze" pattern, for a fee of $5,000. She would decide which trades to make and those trades would be executed in my account via auto-trade. If she couldn't turn a profit after 12 months, I would receive my $5,000 back. However, if my account grew 100% over that time period (i.e., turning my $10,000 account into at least $20,000 by year's end), she would get to keep the fee. It seemed like a sound investment. After all, Wendy literally wrote a book on options trading. I believed at the time that she could make thousands of dollars per month trading options.

I bought this book (kindle version) and found it to be both good and not so good. The information about what options are is adequate. A lot of the book is concerned with chart reading and the authors' take on that subject. Now charts do help you, but a lot of the information she provides is found on the chartschool section [...] (which she gives credit to) and that info is free. As you read the book you'll find you are constantly going to this web site to get a clearer understanding of what she is writing about in the book...some of the strategies are good, but not that revolutionary. I felt I did not get as much out of this book as I thought I would but did learn a few things...oh well, off to my next book on options. Hope it's better.

I'm stationed overseas and have limited access to books...this one happened to be the only option trading book around, so I sheepishly picked it up and purchased it. It's great! Not only did it clarify the not-too-easy-to-understand world of options, it taught me a lot about chart reading/technical analysis for my regular stock purchases. Using the information in the book, I've made one options trade, and several stock trades I never would have attempted before, and have made significant gains. Great book, highly recommend it!

I can hardly believe that this book has actually gotten me in the market, trading options!! I have never, ever, ever understood the stock market principles before, and never even HEARD of trading options until a friend told me she was doing it, and making money. . . so I decided to give it a read. This is a book written by women for women, (or anyone else who might not know the first thing about the stock market and how it works). This is a beginner's dream because even though the information is dense and has to be studied (if you're serious about doing this) it's ALL there. A reference, a text, a manual for the hopeless! I'm trading "virtually" until I know enough to use my own money, and I'm already making a profit, with all my mistakes and my bad trades, I've learned enough to come up on the plus side by about $300 in just a couple of weeks. (and I have lost a lot more than that during the process, so this is a NET gain.) If you want to make some money in your spare time, and you have an affinity for NYT crossword puzzles, Las Vegas, or not working a 9 to 5 job, this is the book for you. Mind grabbing and beautifully written for the sake of getting into the market. It does not cover all the advanced forms of option play. (I'm told this will be in the next book, when I inquired.) But it covers Buys and Puts, the jargon, the strategies, the know how to make your way through the maze that before I thought was incomprehensible. I am grateful to these authors!!!!

First let me say that i have attended many of Wendy's classes at [...] I was pointed to her book by a few memebers over there. Pound for Pound this is the best book for entry level options trading i have read. If you have no experience trading or have attempted trading options and failed then this book is for you!!!! It does not cover the more technical way of trade options such as spreads,strangles etc... It does however do a GREAT job on playing calls and puts. I have read her book and can say that i have been doing very well on my paper trades and also have made a good money on the real money plays i have made!!! I would recommend buying her book and then popping in over at [...] and registering with them. The goodies has FREE classes and Wendy is avaliable to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding her book or any other options questions you might have!!!! I dont wanna go on and on about how excellent this whole arrangment is(it should be obvious you buy the book then speak directly to the author!!! how can you miss with that combination??) Also if you are wondering about the content of the book. It covers everything you need to purchase call/put options.. The greeks,volatility,buying in the money ,outa money,near the money etc.... Also i would like to point out that I am not being paid to either endorse this book or [...] I am just simply explaining the way i started out trading options and the path i took to learn(and so far i have been sucessful)Also that being said i would also like to point out that any of the fellows turned off by the title should simply ingnore it haha. I am not a woman and this book ROCKS!!! I also know alot of other fella's that own it.
