"There are a myriad of 'Options 101' books for the beginning options investor and painfully lengthy and dry graduate-level books on advanced strategies. Larry has found the sweet spot in between, offering a great book on intermediate option strategies. I can heartily endorse Trading Options in Turbulent Markets as THE book for investors seeking to enhance their knowledge of derivative trading and createa low-risk, high-return investment game plan."
—Jon "Doctor J" Najarian, cofounder, tradeMONSTER.com
"Mr. Shover has managed to marry a thoughtful presentation of volatility as it relates to options pricing and options trading, with a narrative that goes beyond the purely theoretical and focuses on the practical implications of this 'measure of instability' (first line of Chapter 2) for those who use options. In light of the tumultuous events that have churned the global financial markets, a read on the practical implications of volatility seems prudent for all who choose to employ options."
—Pat Arbor, Chairman Emeritus, CBOT, and current Director ofFirst Chicago Bank and Trust
