A powerful read that entertains as it teaches. Scott G. Kyle has a talent for taking complex investment strategies and bringing them down to earth. For those who have always wanted to know, step by step, how to potentially enhance returns by combining powerful options techniques with high quality dividend paying stocks, this is your lucky day. Keep this book on a shelf within easy reach. --Sam Kerner, CFA, Portfolio Manager, Franklin Advisory Services, LLC

My hat is off to Scott G. Kyle for presenting an investment strategy that is definable, measurable, repeatable and without emotion! This book offers an independent, objective, and unbiased approach to managing money the right way. 'The Power Curve' offers a complete roadmap to beating the market that should be required reading for every professional and amateur looking to get in the game. This book will be by my side always as a guide to managing money - not just a one and done read. --Michael Steelman, Director, Bank of America

If you invest in stocks, read this book. Scott has delivered no-nonsense, practical and easy to understand tools for any investor. As Scott teaches in the book, options and dividends are powerful tools all investors should understand. --Jon Sundt, Pres. Altegris Investments

Scott G. Kyle's book was, for me, a compelling and very satisfying book on a complex subject. I was surprised at how much useful information was contained in a mere 250 pages! I have read a number of books and articles on investing. Kyle's use of timely examples, graphics and straightforward style was very helpful. I learned more from his book than all the others I have read combined. --Hudson B Drake, Pres. Teledyne Aerospace and Electonics, Los Angeles

The Power Curve' is an excellent read for investors who have the desire and ability to take their portfolio management to the next level by leveraging dividends and options strategies to balance income, capital gains and risk control. Perhaps even more valuable, the book succinctly identifies the factors that cause most investors to underperform the market, and gives no-nonsense advice on how to eliminate common money-losing behaviors. Throughout the book, Scott Kyle uses his hard-won experience in investing as well as other pursuits to tell a story which ties the concepts together and makes for an enjoyable and informative read.

Format: Hardcover
Having studied Finance in school, I thought I knew a lot about options, dividends, etc.. but it wasn't until I read this book that I truly understood their power. The Power Curve is great for applying advanced stock concepts to your own investing endeavors. Most finance books are very dry to read, and I usually do not make it through the entire book, but Kyle uses everyday examples explain otherwise complex matters in easy-to-understand ways, and ultimately makes these important investment themes more relevant to everyday life.

It's wisdom from the wise. Real smart stuff. Think you'll enjoy this. Concepts need to be studied. Take your time reading it. May need more than one read to absorb it.
