The 2nd Edition is ruined with basic errors. In terms of content this book was outstanding. It provided great examples for a beginner learning options for the first time. I have taken a few option courses before and his strategies, techniques and terminologies were helpful.
They were a little on the beginner side but as a market risk professional I will not that against him as he described the book as the "first book that new professional traders are given to learn the trading strategies and risk management techniques required for success in option markets.
Now the reasons for the 1 rating: Simply put, the book is filled with basic mistakes: While I found this book to be a good resource since I placed the emphasis on the ideas and terms, not the examples , I would not recommend it as your first book which he described it as.
Based on the reviews of the 1st Edition, I would say buy that book as it may be the best book for options. If he spent the time and provided good examples, I would give this book 5 stars and say it was a must have for ever collection.
But the errors occur too often and they break down at a basic level. For a basic book that is heavily flawed, I saw it should only be rated a 1. If I did not have prior experience in options academic courses and professional experience , I would be confused. Fortunately, most of the mistakes that he makes are quite obvious and you should be able to correct them on your own even if you are learning it for your first time.
Overall, I say buy the 1st edition and avoid this book like a plague. Overall, if he would have read the book over, he should have been able to easily catch his mistakes. It's a shame he did not take the time to review the book to make sure it was written correctly. I've very disappointed in Sheldon Natenberg as his first edition was consider the bible of options still is.
Was this review helpful to you? This is the best book that I have read on the theoretical pricing model. It is well-written, the figures and tables reinforce the text, and the math is as simple as possible considering the complexity of the Black, Sholes, Merton model model. Nevertheless, I have given the book only three stars because it does not confirm or compare its theoretical values with market data. Also, the book contains careless errors that should not exist after two editions.
The book fails to connect theory with reality. All the example trades, figures and tables are hypothetical. Option prices and the volatility that they imply IV are derived from the model.More...
