Since I'm a sitting duck I might as well begin learning something new. I have a co-worker who loaned me a book on options along with a CD which was very nice of her. It seems straightforward. The book can't be more than 50 pages or so. I also wanted to learn about how to short, but being that I have this book and CD I feel compelled that I should learn about options first. Do you trade options? I know nothing about them at the moment. I Googled it a few months ago and became quickly confused. I read a page or two of this book and the author really seems to break things down into laymen's term. She told me that she'd make $100-$300 in a day. I do know it's risky business.
