    A revised new edition of the easy-to-read, illustrated guide to the complex world of options investing

    Investing in options is potentially very lucrative, but many shy away from it because of its complexity and the perception of high risk. In non-technical terms, this helpfully illustrated guide demystifies the options markets, distinguishes the imagined risks from the real ones, and arms investors with the facts they need to make informed, profitable decisions.

    Carefully weaving examples, charts, and key points into the text, the book gives readers the skills to master the complex world of options, and also covers all the fundamental jargon and concepts.

    • Updated to include commentary on the current market and the growing importance of options as an investment vehicle
    • Another new addition to the successful "Getting Started In" series by Michael C. Thomsett
    • The perfect introductory guide to options for investors at any level of experience

    For anyone who wants to invest in options but needs a straightforward and easy-to-read guide to the subject in order to do so, Getting Started in Options is a must-read.
