    The 108 powerful strategies lined out in this comprehensible guide by author Michael C.

Not only are LEAPS a low-risk alternative to buying stock, they are also a great way to maximize your capital.

    I recently decided that LEAPS options offer some advantages that I ought to be taking advantage of in the future. I have a cursory knowledge of LEAPS and have employed them in the past, but I decided a refresher course was in order both to reacquaint me with basic LEAPS concepts and to inform me of any relevant info about current LEAPS offerings. THE LEAPS STRATEGIST failed on both counts.

    This book was written for readers who already understand LEAPS fundamentals and are interested in their use in, I will say, sophisticated applications that far exceed my objectives. I have no reason to believe the book would not be perfectly suitable for those readers. But the book simply does not provide what I was seeking.

    While this book provides a lot of strategies, a lot of the strategies are just very close variations of other strategies. The strategies overlap significantly. The book seems to repeat itself a lot. I believe it contains a few errors and makes some major oversimplifications. For those reasons, this book is not for the novice investor.

    It’s worth the price, because you will find something in this book that will make money for you.

    I would prefer to purchase a book that I could NOT write myself. Most of the strategies in this book are not unique to LEAPS.

    “Purchase LEAPS Calls” Duh?

    “Purchase LEAPS Puts” Duh again!

    Having said that, the author does makes succint points throughout the book, shares a lot of much needed common sense when it comes to trading and there are indeed some interesting strategies to make you think, such as purchasing stocks by shorting the put – again, not necessarily a LEAPS strategy though one stands a better chance over a period of 3 years to be successful.

    The author also does a good job in emphasizing – again and again – the benefits of LEAPS in terms of minimizing risk.

    Based on the title I was expecting 108 strategies unique to LEAPS and there are interspersed throughout the book (I will not spill the beans and you will have to purchase (or borrow) the book for that) but those strategies are a fraction of the book – maybe a dozen. Cetainly not 108 of them.

    I did give it 3 stars though because for me, if I pick up 2 or 3 good pointers from a book and they prove to be successful or even if the book has given me some food for thought it is already worth the investment – but that’s just me.

    Another fantastic tool in the book is the index at the back of the book. The index itself is split in two – you have got the strategies listed by chapter as well as listed alphabetically.

    Any index is useful especially when it is set out in the manner as it is in this book.

    As already mentioned by previous reviews – this one is not for the novice nor does it pretend to be.

    Good luck.

    In this book the author reviews many IDEAS involving LEAPS but in my opinion none of them are covered in enough detail to stand alone as full fledged strategies.

    For example the topic of using LEAPS as a substitute for stocks in a covered call strategy only gets maybe 8 or 9 pages in this book. I have read other books where almost 100 pages are devoted to this strategy alone.

    The author is also flat out wrong about one thing:

    Page 251….”Many index options, however, are traded using the European Style rules. Under that system, positions cannot be closed or sold before expiration”

    Oops I hope that’s just a typo.
