This book makes a very complex subject easy to understand. It starts from the very basics descibing each of the commodities and types of energy then goes onto describe there general uses giving you good background to the markets and who uses them. Its goes to the technical stuff of the markets tryin gto make as easy to understand as possible, using lots of graphs and flow diagrams.
Avoids the tedious aspect of a lot of financial book by using short expalinations and lots of diagrams and graphs.Also goes in to quite a lot of detail with getting bogged down with long explaination.
Enjoyable read.

This is one of several Reuters training books for Financial Markets. I own all of them and have to say they are excellent. For anyone looking to start at the begining and understanding the basics of Derivatives, Bond Markets, Equities, Commodities, Hedgings, Puts, going Long, Shorts etc. etc. The books are easily digestible with clear and important point explained with the use of graphs, diagrams and coloured sections. There's review points and the large bold texts and book layout (Landscape rather than Portrait) all help to make the book easy and enjoyable to understand. I can't recommend these books enough. suitable of all levels of reader from A level students right through to day Traders and people joining Financial Institutes for the first time.
One of the best training resources I've read. Buy It.

Good reading for aspiring practitioners! 12 May 2007
By S.E. Spirakos - Published on Amazon.com
It is a satisfactory book for a practical introduction to commodity trading owing to its association with the relevant Reuters screens which make the text less abstract as compared with the typical theoretical texts on the subject.

Its two main drawbacks though are: 1) the inadequacy of the material pertinent to trading strategies which make use of the instruments and 2) the fact that the Wiley internet links seem to be currently unavailable!

Studying this book along with the other Reuters "Introduction to Derivatives" may help close many gaps which the novice reader is likely to find in the text.
