"An easy-to-follow guide on options that's worth checking out if you want to be 100% clear you know what you're risking and stand to gain by playing options."

"The Options Playbook is a valuable reference for Option Traders of all levels. Not only does it explain complex subjects like Implied Volatility and 'The Greeks' in a manner that is easy to understand, it does so with humor and an appealing wit. It's the kind of resource you will reach for every time you make an option trade."
