5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for anyone curious about futures Aug. 6 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book should have a subtitle: "Everything you wanted to know about futures but were afraid to ask". I received the book around noon, finished up work around five, and the book around ten that night. A delightful work that refreshed my understanding of the whys and wherefores of the futures markets. Written in a witty, wry style, it kept my interest all the way through. Truly broke down and explained in reasonable -- often humerous -- terms a number of mysteries that had never been satisfactorily answered in several other books I've read on the subject. In publishing parlance, a real page-turner.

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.

Format:Paperback
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.

This book is for those who know nothing or virtually nothing about commodity futures. If you already know even a little about commodity futures, this book is not for you. It is just a foundation. You will not be ready to trade commodity futures after you read this book (and the author does not pretend that you will be), but you will be ready to go on to more in-depth research. The book is light, quick reading.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Futures 101: An Introduction to Commodity Trading March 19 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.
