The previous reviewer's comments should be disregarded as I cannot conceive of anyone writing about this subject matter any more clearly (yes, I have read both of Fontanills' books) -- the authors appear to have put much effort into this book judging by its clarity, and one nitwit's daffy comments should not dissuade you!
It is not easy to follow, does not cover the subject in an easy to understand manner. They try to publish to justify their existance.
I prefer an number of other books that hit the mark - McMillan, Natenburg and of course the master of all option trader's Fontanills.
