"Jeanette Schwarz Young says that the options business 'is a treasure hunt with a real treasure at the end,' and so is her book. She makes complicated topics-candlesticks, butterflies, Condors, straddles and strangles, and more-Understandable, even as she discusses how she entered the business, mastered and created tools of the trade, and helps others manage both winning an losing positions. She clearly is a treasure, too."

"Anyone wanting to learn how to apply technical analysis to options trading should find The Options Doctor very useful. Young is at her best when she explains her favorite trading tools. I especially liked reading about her experiences on the trading floor which have given her a unique view of market trading."
