'Getting Started in Options' is just that

This is a book full of examples to help describe the 'Options' trading. Although the concept of option trading is somewhat simple, but the terminology used can be confusing. After listening to this audio book, I'm looking to purchase the printed version as well in order to see the examples and highlight the sections that I'll need to use as a reference. I highly recommend this book, preferably the printed version.

Good information, but TOO abridged

This was a good listen. The speaker was clear and well articulated and the information was good. Unfortunately the abridged version is simply TOO abridged. I finished listening to the book in a few drives to work and back and was thinking that it was just STARTING when it was over! The material as presented seems more of a preface than a book.

I would not recommend this as your monthly book if you are trying to stick to the Basic Membership of one book per month. I'm trying not to go over that limit and so having a book this brief was disappointing.
