"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."
--- Matt Krantz, USA Today, Better Know Your Option Options, November 16, 2007

"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."
--- James B. Bittman, Senior Instructor, The Options Institute at CBOE
Author of Options for the Stock Investor and Trading Options as a Professional
