As long as you don't pay too much for this and are aware that unlike most UK releases you can only use this on Kindles at once (I have a few Kindle readers, laptops, phones, it soon adds up), it's probably worth a read.

Very helpful book! 26 Aug 2011
By PL - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been wanting to invest in commodities for some time. So I wanted to get a book that covers the gamut. That's what Tom's book does. He looks at all the major categories but also looks at some of the areas that often do not get much coverage.

Tom also shows the ways you can invest in commodities. These include futures, options, ETFs and so on. It's done in an easy-to-understand way, with many helpful examples.

Along the way, you'll find tips and techniques to improve your investment success as well. More importantly, Tom has advice on how to protect yourself from the risks.

Excellent book!
I thought I knew more.... 28 Jan 2014

The book is well written for someone like me who knew enough to be interested but not enough to take action.
Just as I would find myself thinking "what?" The author seemed to explain the situation in the following pages.

It covered all my vague curiosity on commodities! 14 Aug 2013
By yun jung WON - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't know much on commodities although I wasn't planning to start investing on commodities in near future, I just started to have vague curiosity. I spent a lot of time reading reviews and I chose this book based on the good review. And it did cover all my curiosity and met my expectations. I highly recommend this book for people starting.

Great launching point into the world of Commodities 19 Sep 2011
By Dave Mock - Published on
Format: Paperback
Having little clue of the commodities markets before reading this book, it was a great introduction to the entire space. Having previously worked with Tom Taulli (disclosure: Tom and I have co-authored in the past) and after reading many of his other books, I expected a simple, straightforward roadmap for the core essentials of commodities, their history and markets and that's exactly what All About Commodities gives.

The book is an easy read and is well organized to give the uninitiated a good resource on commodities. This isn't a commodities bible, but a broad intro to all the major sectors so if you're looking for a good foundation with little jargon and complexity, this is it.
