I was very happy to be given the opportunity to write a book designed to help retail investors as they embark on their journey into options investing. My goal was to provide information that demystified much of the difficulty by making the approach straightforward, using common sense rather than complicated math.

You are the inspiration for this book, and I hope you find it useful.
