1.0 out of 5 stars downloaded this to amuse myself as a bit if fun with all the mythology, August 23, 2014

I am seriously in Athens ...downloaded this to amuse myself as a bit if fun with all the mythology.

I made it to page 5. Thankfully I downloaded it for free. Poorly written, a waste of time to read any further.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good ...with an exception, May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a GREAT travel dress - I did not expect it to roll into a ball and never wrinkle - and washes like a charm.

The fit is clean, simple and a nice length for ME - ( I am 5ft and it is just at the knee)

With a scarf and heels - it is dressed up easily ...

EXCEPTION ... there are pulls at the bodice after three wears - and it makes it look cheap - basically renders it unwearable and it is too late to be returned.

First use - blew a fuse immediately. I excused it -read all the reviews..pressed lighter, etc

Useless at this point and BTW it is not even on the B & D website

5.0 out of 5 stars Not even close to the competition..., March 11, 2014
Struggled with JamBox for almost 2 years - 2 replacements...NEVER got any volume. I am sitting in a space listening on my mac and the Bose Mini is PURE DELIGHT. Great bass --- works 60 ft away from source

Oh so happy to have my music . . . . Josh Groban never sounded so good.:)

PS JawBone (Jambox) has excellent customer service. I was never let down by their service. Just the JamBox.

5.0 out of 5 stars For every level investor, January 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I read Sincere's first edition of this book years ago - and never bothered much with options, Certainly not the more advanced strategies. As I readdressed options recently, it became clear that this new edition was mandatory. Things change in the investment world - especially electronic trades - very rapidly.

Sincere's style of writing is clear, concise and very easy to read and follow. Terminology is explained in simple terms - he does a good job of assuring the reader that one will not get boggled in technical terms. As he says ... one doesn't need to understand a combustable engine to drive a car.

Sincere develops the chapters very well, progressing from topic to topic in an understandable and fluid manner.

As he suggests, one must be familiar with stocks, the market, and trading in general, before reading this book. There are many stock market and investment books available as primers, including one by the same author. Read and know investing before you start this book.

Understanding Options is a primer for the beginning option investor, as refresher for the more experienced, and covers very technical and advanced strategies for the seasoned investor.

My first edition - being in book form - is highlighted and dog eared. This edition I bought electronic - easy to read and many links are included which make it nicer to move within the volume to various topics. Of course it can still be 'page marked' and sections saved and highlighted for rereads.

I am a pro at installing these ... and most brands are difficult at best. These perform well and installs simply. DO follow the YouTube instructions and turn off the phone.
