The book looks at every option broker, web site and then ranks them for their usefullness. This book is something I consult on a regular basis to find information on the Internet. A candid approach to trading by a trader who is the real thing, a money manager that likes to teach others the secrets to making money. Thank you Mr. Fontanills.
