The Four Biggest Mistakes in Options Trading (Trad&hellip by Jay Kaeppel
1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this, 2 Feb 2012
Even for a beginner, it would probably be a bad idea to purchase this book.

Its not even a big enough book to enable you to justify your purpose by arguing it will look good on your bookshelf. It won't.

Stay well away.
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Michael Lewis - perhaps more successfully than in this book's predecessor 'Liar's Poker' - shows us how tragic it is to think he may have missed his calling as a writer by fannying about in ignominy on the trading floor of some defunct bank.

Never mind the wit, the humour, the intelligence, and the best (simplest) explanation of the subprime loan debacle that I have ever come across, Lewis proves to be at the top of his game when it comes to the very essence of his craft: exciting, interesting writing. The reader never wants to put this book down for fear of missing what comes next.

A thoroughly enjoyable read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book., 30 April 2011
This was probably the first book I ever read that covered options in such depth. A good and interesting read, you can learn a fair amount. As Taleb was an FX options practitioner, beware for most examples to be FX related.
