Trading Realities: The Truth, The Lies, and The Hype In-between (Jeff Augen)

Augen is a private investor and author. This book captures his thoughts on how to make a better investor with unorthodox strategies.

The book covers a wide range of topics: the market, the fallacy of trading (and some of those for investing), trends, volatility, etc. The first half of the book captures quite common topics covered elsewhere. However, the important portions to me were the discussions on volatility and how to use options to boost investments. Here, a full chapter is devoted to each topic and each is a good primer for an investor new to these topics. However, I found them to be the most difficult portions of the book to comprehend.

The book overall is not easy to read but readers who wade through will be well rewarded. This is more suitable for advanced retain investors.
