Filled with Insight, Creative, Not For Newbies, June 15, 2002 By A Customer This review is from: The New Options Advantage: Gaining a Trading Edge Over the Markets, Revised Edition (Hardcover) A good choice for stock option investors despite it mentioning commmodities. This book will overwhelm a beginner, who should start with Charles Caes' great "Tools of the Bear" (which works for bull and bear markets). Far superior to George Fontanills. Caplan is creative, he writes well and gives the studious reader many important tips. I made two pages of notes from this book. With even a little experience, an options investor will truly ascend to a higher level of knowledge and trading mastery with this book.

Creative Options Strategies That Work, July 16, 1998 By A Customer This review is from: The New Options Advantage: Gaining a Trading Edge Over the Markets, Revised Edition (Hardcover) David Caplan doesn't pull any punches with this book. What you see is what you get. If you want straight forward trading ideas, buy this book. If you want detailed and esoteric volatility analytical tools, buy Natenberg or some of the other PhD's works. What really is great about Caplan is that he is a speculator, he seems to enjoy risk, heck doesn't every options trader. Unfortunately, for most readers, the majority of books on the markets are written for people who despise risk. Caplan exposes a number of techniques that will eliminate a fair amount of the risk that goes with buying outright. However, the best techniques in the book are about selling options. Ask your broker if he agrees and he will probably say no, but I would bet that Caplan has gotten rich on this technique. Sell premium and get rich; buy premium and die broke...

I ONLY TRADE STOCK OPTIONS SO THIS BOOK WASN'T WHAT I WANTED, August 22, 1998 By A Customer This review is from: The New Options Advantage: Gaining a Trading Edge Over the Markets, Revised Edition (Hardcover) I THINK IF YOU TRADED IN FUTURES THIS WOULD BE A GREAT BOOK BUT I GUESS I'M A NEWCOMER TO OPTIONS TRADING AND IT WAS TOO DEEP FOR ME. SO FAR I HAVE ONLY TRADED STOCK OPTIONS.
