"There are many options books in the market today. For the most part, they impart sterile options strategies that will ′theoretically′ work for you. But, they are written from the perspective of an academic. In Lee Lowell′s Get Rich with Options, you will learn options and commodities basics. That′s not where the value is. The value of this outstanding, understandable book comes from the author′s perspective of how to trade options and commodities. Lee Lowell brings you the secrets from the trading pits in New York, the secrets of a market–maker, a trader who must make money to survive, and a trader who has made thousands of successful trades. After reading the book, you will come away with a professional education and the stark realization that trading options is easier than you think, more profitable than you could imagine, and that there are only three or four surefire strategies that will make you a lot of money consistently. Clear your shelf for this one, it is an invaluable guide for the fastest growing segment of the investment arena today." Karim Rahemtulla, Investment Director, Mt. Vernon Research
