Most Useful Of All The Trading Books
As I wrote to you after the Las Vegas Traders Expo back in 2014, I attended your talk there, after a suggestion by Jim Bittman at the CBOE booth. I really related to your session and I immediately went up to the bookseller booth at the show and bought your “No-Hype Options Trading” book. I can honestly say it’s been the most useful of all the trading books I’ve purchased (which is significant number!). I have read it several times and refer to it on a regular basis. I had forgotten that you had a second book out, until I was reminded at the 2015 Traders Expo. I ordered it when I returned home and have read portions of it already. It is also very applicable to the type of trading I do. I really appreciate the detail to backtesting various option strategies. I plan on reading it more carefully and sure I will take away many practical “nuggets” to help improve my techniques. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.

Extremely Well Taught
Taking the course after an absence has been very much a help. The course was organized and extremely well-taught. The final lessons brought everything together in an informative and precise manner, hammering home important points that will keep us on the right track towards success, by following your program of risk management. Although I remain most interested in the income generating strategies, I will selectively try out some of the other strategies, even if only paper trading them.
I am looking forward to the trading group. I look at it as another educational opportunity. Your books and these courses remain a source of constant reference.
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I am sitting by the lake rereading your book. While I got a good deal out of it on my first read, I am getting so much more than the China read. Perhaps less jet lag and fewer distractions. Perhaps I got smarter in the last six months. Anyway, outstanding job.
One of the Most Lucid, Practical and Realistic Books on Options Trading
Given has provided one of the most lucid, practical and realistic books on options trading with Time Is Money. Without any hype, Given takes us through the intricacies of option pricing and trading characteristics by focusing on how a trader can develop a trading system and a money management system. The emphasis is on candidate selection and risk management; the author's framework for trade selection and risk management is excellent. The discussion on weekly options alone is well worth the book; clearly showing the differences in monthly and weekly option characteristics, he helps understand the unique risks one is taking on - this chapter significantly aided me in inspecting my trades much better.
