Riskier than Vegas
If you think casino gambling is risky, then you haven’t ‘played’ options. There is little more dangerous than betting on the movement of a stock short term. This book encourages behavior that is bad for the customer, but VERY good for the house, uh, broker.
Waste of time
Author uses either too much lingo or just unclear terminology. The examples are supposed to illustrate the concepts but fall short of that goal. There are also numerous typos and a ton of wasted space with “exercises” and “assignments” that reference some unknown software or website.
