Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn how to make money with options? Options are a great investing tool to use. Options are contracts by which the seller offers the client their current right, but not their own obligation, for the buyer to buy or maybe sell a specified number of shares at a preset price within a specific time frame.

Over the past few decades, more and more people are choosing to invest in stock options than did before. This is because the majority of investors are now realizing that one can make good money by trading in options. Unlike stocks, investing in options gives you a lot of flexibility in making money. In addition, investing in stock options requires less money than investing in the underlying assets. You can make money in options from either the rise or fall of shares by buying their options at a fraction of the cost.

Any additional comments?


Overall, the book was informative.
The author defines Options and the types.
He provides tips and a guide showing how to make money buying and selling them.
And, last, the author goes over the benfits and risks of options.
I think the book was a little too short for such a complex subject.

The narrator, Roger Wood, did well, he is clear and concise.

A little disappointed....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The information was complex and difficult to put into a one hour audiobook. Although, I do admire the effort and intent to make this a self-help options guide, the book became a little complex for me to apply to real life investments.

What about Roger Wood’s performance did you like?

The narrator was good. He had a strong voice, which defined the intent of the book clearly.

A complex concept well explained

I began listening to this with absolutely no concept of what Options Trading was. It's not the easiest concept to grasp, but I know enough now that should I decide to try my hand at Options trading (and I'm considering it now), I'd know where to start researching.

I learned the difference between a call option and a put option and strategies that people use them for. The author goes briefly into several examples of strategies when investing in options, discussing the pros and cons of using a full-service broker vs a minimal-service broker, how one can invest in options for a considerably lower price than investing in stocks and trade them effectively, and the process of choosing which options to buy or sell.

This is far from the only resource you'd need, but if you're like me and come at this without even knowing what questions to ask, this gets you past that first step. Recommended.

Note: the recording has some unevenness, but its never poor quality. The narrator speaks clearly without over-enunciating. He did his job admirably.

Also, I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
