"An excellent book for investors and non-investors alike." -- West Coast Review of Books

"Covers all the basics with wit and without excess jargon. The author neither encourages nor discourages trading in futures and doesn't have a 'system' to sell.

There is also an unbiased and excellent analysis of Hillary Clinton's success in trading commodities many years ago." -- Reader Comment

"Describes with simple detail in a language easy to understand the secrets of commodity investments and how they work." -- Rapport Magazine

"Especially recommended for potential commodity trading investors, students, and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in U.S. and global economic markets." -- Midwest Book Review

FUTURES 101 was named recipient of a 1998 Book of the Year Award by the North American Bookdealers Exchange. -- National book award

This book is:
1) ONLY for non-futures traders looking to understand the art of commodity trading,
2) illustrating step-by-step of when, what, who, and how of futures trading,
3) depicting how you can win or loss BIG from futures.
This book isn't:
1) an advice on how to WIN,
2) a tool on how to beat the system.
Since I am a bystander looking to investing in the futures, this is a great book to begin. A perfect Futures for Dummies.

1.0 out of 5 stars For Rank Beginners or Grade School Students. Oct. 22 2002
Format:Paperback
If you have no experience in any market, this book is for you. Takes 2 hours to read/skim. I learned a little about the background of commodities. Book is also annoying to read because of it's unorthodox style of font (block lettering), strange page layout (Sentences are sometimes indented in a ladder-style, like poetry), and repeating of information. Find a meater text.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible July 29 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Very poorly written. No charts, No visuals. I bought it for a frind who is interested in a basic undertanding of commodities. I sent it back after trying to read a little of it. It doesn't flow. I got the feeling the author wrote with no outline.

5.0 out of 5 stars tHIS GUY DICK MUST BE A GENIUS Feb. 9 2001
Format:Paperback
THIS BOOK TAKES THE COMPLICATED DECISIONS THAT INVESTING IS ALL ABOUT AND BREAKS IT DOWN INTO A LANGUAGE THAT IS EASILY ABSORBED. oNCE THE INFORMATION IS DISPEARSED mR WALDRON NEVER TRIES TO LEAD THE READER IN ANY ONE DIRECTION, THUS THE INFORMATION SEEMS TO BE SENT AS A LEARNING TOOL ONLY. THANK YOU MR WALDRON FOR THIS MASTERPIECE IN COMMODITY TRADING. I LOOK FORWARD ANY FUTURE BOOKS REGARDING FUTURES. YOU MUST, IF YOU HAVE ANY SENSE OF FEAR, BUY THIS BOOK BEFORE JUMPING OFF THE CLIFF OF COMMODITIES TRADING. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED AFTER YOU READ THIS BARGIN.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leave Hillary out of it!!!! Aug. 30 2000
Format:Paperback
I truly enjoyed 95% of this book and found it to be an incredibly simply written and easily understandable beginning text. My only complaint is that there is a multi-page (17 page) examination of Hillary Clinton's commodity investments of the late 70's, during which Waldron does some of the most partisan campaigning that I have ever read. I dont know whether she did anything wrong or not. Frankly, not reall interested. But please stop telling me how innocent she is. Other than that--really good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Futures 101: An Introduction to Commodity Trading March 20 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A great book to start out with. The first few chapters were a bit basic, however the meat of the book is in the middle chapters. It offers great unbiased, factual information. While this book alone is not strong enough to start trading on, it lays the perfect foundation to build from. Definately recommeded for the beginning trader/speculator.
