Preface

About 20 years ago I approached John Wiley & Sons with the idea to write a guide to option strategies. Several books had been written that gave an overall introduction to options and too many books had been written that purported to show the reader how to make millions while sipping pina coladas on the beach. No book had been written purely on options strategies. Wiley decided to give it a go.
Twenty years and one edition later, the book is still being sold across the country. Few books live that long! I want to thank my readers for their support.

This third edition adds much more information on predicting implied volatility, how to select a strategy, and how to make money trading options. In addition, more material has been added to just about every chapter. And, of course, I’ve cleaned up even more errors. Thanks to my eagle-eyed readers for spotting them!

One thing I have tried to retain from the first edition is the straightforward approach to options strategies. This book is designed to be used by traders, not read by rocket scientists. I have attempted to keep the math to a bare minimum. There are now plenty of books with plenty of formulas.

The success of this book is gratifying. But the most gratifying success comes from helping you, the reader, make money in the markets. I hope this book helps you to be a trading success.
