Also, I like the explanations of how the Chicago trading pits actually work. Many books on options are on the extremes: This one is different, and it's about time. I'll be reading and re-reading this one for a long time. Najarian for this book. Najarian's work both entertaining and stimulating. He chronicles his journey from pro football linebacker to market maker that kept me turning the pages.
This book isn't a "look how great I am", but seemed an honest effort to educate me, as to how options could help me make money, even as a retail investor. I would say Doctor J, as he is apparently known on the trading floor accomplished the goal of educating me, a novice option investor. This was not a book filled with charts or other superfluous material, but rather a concise manuscript packed with stategies. Najarian spent chapter after chapter outlining bullish and bearish stategies.
Virtually every strategy was accomplished by an anecdote from his lengthy trading career. For me, this made the reading much easier, more entertaining and greatly enhanced my enjoyment and learning.
I recommend How I Trade Options to anyone that wants to begin trading options, or manage their money more effectively. I think anyone that seriously wants to limit risk should read this book and use these strategies. A friend told me, "If you want to learn options, Doctor J is the man! The book offered several chapters on investing with less risk and that was very much appreciated after the year I've had!
I've used the bull call spread several times and intend to use other strategies as I become more accustomed to investing with options. I was happy to discover that this really isn't as tough as I thought and my investment account reflects that. I had never read any other option related book, so I can't compare Doctor J's writing to any other investment author, but I have recommended the book, just as my friend recommended it to me.
