    I'm looking for a good advance option book. I know the basics about options and option strategies. I'm thinking about buying
    "Option Volatility & Pricing: Advanced Trading Strategies and Techniques (Hardcover)" by Sheldon Natenberg.

    Does any know if this is a good book or recommend something else?

    Great book! I read it over one weekend borrowed from the library, and the next Monday I ordered it.
  3. I've read it a couple times. It is pretty good and does what it was intended for. A little outdated for the internet trading world, but good nonetheless.

    Don't expect it to help you if you are a directional trader. But if you want to learn more about volatility, it will be a good read.

    "Options trading: the hidden reality" by Cottle.
  5. The very same book was the course book at the CBOT when I applied for my options badge (way back). He (Sheldon) taught the course using his own book (what a trip!). Everybody had to take the course before was allowed on the floor....
  6. Just courious...was HE a good teacher?
  7. As I remember yes.
