Still learning after all these years…

I’ve been an options trader for over 8 years and I still learn new things…even from a beginners book! Listening to all three options strategies still helps me immensely. These three strategies have been by far and away my most successful and profitable trades. I highly recommend even the most experienced options traders to listen to them. The book is very thorough and well thought out.
If you are a beginner options trader, this book will for sure set you on your way to a very profitable future! You must listen to each one all the way through and listen multiple times…it is definitely worth it!! Good luck and fortune!!!

All you Need!

I was brand new to these strategies before listening to this audiobook. These strategies are easy to understand as well as effective ways to make money in the market. It is jammed packed with useful information that I believe anyone can implement. They give many scenarios throughout the book and give examples of what they explain. This is what really helped me absorb the information so well! Great Audiobook!

Just one word: Simplicity!

My partner try so many times to explain covered calls to me but no matter how he did it I still didn't understand and I was starting to feel dumb until I found this book!
I had my aha moment when listening to the olive presses and tulip examples. The author made the concept so simple to understand with those examples and deconstruct any objection that can stop you to take action. I love the step by step approach and the fact that the author point out exactly which stocks would be useful for covered calls like boring stocks for example.
There is so much more in this book. I need a copy for my partner. This will definetely help him in his investing strategy but he will also learn how to properly explain covered calls. Lol

If you are just starting out, start here.

You will lose trades but that doesn't make you a looser. You only lose when you don't learn from it.

Bundle of 3 fantastic audiobooks

So I already owned each of the 3 audiobooks in this bundle because I'd purchased each of them over the last few months and listened to them mainly in the car/at the gym.

And each one of them is FANTASTIC and which is why this bundle is the best deal you'll find... you literally get 3 audiobooks for 1 credit!!!

Financial Eye Opener!!

These books are stuffed with very valuable information about investing. The concepts can be intimidating but the books explains them very well. I know a little about it but these books show a whole different view of how you can make money trading options. These books explain detailed strategies for instance the 4 pillars of trading (establish trade blueprint, sphere of confidence, risk management and loss as a necessity). I liked the way the author related trading back to the relatable concept of losing weight. Both are processes that will not be perfect but you have to keep at it. But out of all of the gold in these books the one thing that stood out and I haven’t seen in another financial book is the importance and relevance of mental health in the world of financial management. Powerful!! I would say more but you really need to buy the books for yourself.

Great read for beginners!

Before listening to these audio books, I knew very little about trading options. Now, I feel confident that I can trade using any of the 3 options described and make money! The investing strategies are explained in a concise, comprehensive manner. There are practical methods on how to apply these strategies and the reasoning why to do so. If you are exploring the possibility of trading options, I highly recommend listening to this set of audio books.

Great starter collection for options trader's

I really enjoyed the books. They have all the basic information to get started in options trading. The narrator was great. I have listened to them all several times and learn more and more with each listen. There is a chapter in all the books that is just copy and pasted from one to the other. That is the only thing I did not like. Seems like lazy writing to me. Overall wonderful collection.

exceeded my expectations

I'm just really happy with this book. From my previous experience, I feel this book teaches very safe strategies and risk management and has good tips on avoiding scams from gurus. It even quotes a from one of my favorite books by Darren Hardy called The Compound Effect, which makes me happy.

Full of solid, practical advice!

Whether you are a beginner or have a little more than some experience in this field - you will most certainly not be disappointed!

As a total newbie I was super impressed with the mind blowing simplicity of language and respect of the author towards the reader right from the start. The topics were explained using real examples, simple terms and effortless writing style.

The books are very well organised, to the point, full of useful advice explained step by step and, I cannot emphasise this enough, does not patronize you at all. Fantastic content, tons of information, I will definitely be listening to it more than once though, in order to fully grasp and apply the knowledge within.

Overall, the books are clearly very well researched, very informative and full of real life examples, relating to CURRENT market, providing unlimited value for someone like myself, only just entering the world of trading.

Last but not least, I’m very impressed with the way the books are organised and executed, as well as narrated - a super easy listen, great job Mark Greenberg!

Solid 5 stars in all three categories.

Thank you Freeman Publications!
Quite interested in having a look at what else is available on your bookshelf!

The trinity of stock investing!

Oh man, what I can I say. I thought Covered Calls for Beginners was eye opening, listening to all three of the books was mind-blowing. I've been undercutting my own portfolio all along. Options trading is not for anyone but the risks are much more mitigated if you are informed. The book is not an easy listen by any means for people who are new to options but it's definitely worth it if you want to expand your portfolio and improve the performance and return of your investment.

Everything I needed to know

As a novice with a basic knowledge of the stock market, these books have given me the insight into options trading I was looking for. 
The author has done a fantastic job covering a massive amount of complex material in an easy-to-follow and non-intimidating language. The material is well organized, with lots of examples and step-by-step guidance. 
I highly recommend these books. They have made me confident that with options trading, I can create extra income, not quick money through risky investments but consistent returns that are safe and secure.

Perfect for a newbie like me!

Freeman Publications does it again!

This trilogy is packed with some serious punch! Undoubtedly, it took me some time to work my way through it all, but on completion, I am super impressed and SO glad I bought this audiobook bundle.

As a complete newbie I've gained a lot of valuable knowledge and insight into the finance world! I feel more confident, something I was lacking before listening to these books. I now have a much better understanding about covered calls, something I was really struggling to get my head around.

The author shares all the information in an easy-to-follow, easy-to-understand format. I REALLY enjoyed the simple and effective tips and tricks of the trade, which these books provide in bucket loads! Things like... the 10 effective ways to master the mental side of trading (thank goodness I've now got my mind right!) and the three non-negotiable trading rules.

I'm so pleased I've discovered Freeman Publishers!

So excited to put these strategies to work!

I've been trading options for the past year or so, without much consistency. I think the problem was that I didn't have the correct strategies in place and in all seriousness, just wasn't educated enough. Most of my focus was on simple calls and puts. After listening this audiobook, I'm excited to add these strategies to my trading plan (especially trading iron condors). This book gives the perfect introduction to options, how to mitigate risk (cannot stress enough how important trading psychology is), and provides ideas to generate cash flow. I especially liked the quizzes that tested my understanding. If you're looking to get started trading options, this series of books will provide a great introduction without being intimidating.

Much Food For Thought!

I can’t remember when I last felt so pumped and motivated. Now I know exactly which stocks to sell and which AI disruptor to buy. I’ve had a good old squizz at some guru portfolios – super interesting, I might add – and I’ve learned about a true keeper of a dividend stock. The video content alone is so good, I can’t wait to give my current broker the third degree!
And these were just the free bonuses that enable you to cut right to the chase. Whoop! Whoop! No need for that broker fee!
I have to admit the bonuses kept me occupied for several hours before I even got around to the actual audiobook, which packs a punch. And then some. Money-printing is rife. Terrifyingly so. How do you choose stocks that will rise in price? Is there a way to leverage your investments without incurring debt? Why, yes there is. Can you accumulate capital gains with buy-and-hold investments? Indeed you can. What about options?
Oh nooooo, not options. The ‘option’ word makes me flinch in much the same way that ‘here, take a look at this technical chart pattern’ does but within in few sentences, I’m reassured by the soothing tones of the narrator who makes everything sound so simple and easy.
There’s no complicated jargon, an instant turn-off for me. I love the breezy writing style and enjoyed the personal stories of everyday people who made it big, such as one chap who bought all the rights to the first use of every olive press in his district – sheer genius but so simple you wonder how you never thought of that yourself.
Well, now you can think of something even better. Well, that's exactly what I'm going to be doing - putting my dreams to work with some solid advice from Freeman Publishers. This one gets full marks from me!

Perfect for complete beginners like me

Great strategies described in a non-intimidating, beginner friendly way!
Sure, the trio of books is more than packed with information!!! But it all makes great sense as you go along. For me, taking notes has been helpful. It starts with the covered calls, and then moves onto more advanced concepts like credit spreads and iron condors.
As a beginner, I especially appreciated the chapters about avoiding trading scams, the non-negotiables, debunking the myths, or the 10 ways to master your trading mindset, as my mindset has definitely not been strong enough and that's a big challenge.
There is just so much value in every chapter! I'm sure if I had the time I'd be listing them all on here.
100% recommend to anyone, I just know I'll be referring back to this for a long time to come!

No-nonsense, actionable insights!

I've bought, read, and listened to a LOT of options strategy books and so I wasn't expecting much that I haven't seen elsewhere, but I picked up this bundle to see if there were any golden nuggets... These 3 books beat everything else I've read to date by a country mile! It's no-nonsense, applicable, and highly informative. Recommend to anyone who's serious about making extra income.

Incredibly detailed yet easy to implement

Wow, what a trilogy, I cannot recommend this series enough. Before listening to these books I was a complete beginner, I knew nothing about economics and didn’t properly understand the financial effects of Covid. However, now I feel extremely confident to evaluate and buy options on my own, as these books gave easy step-by-step instructions and information.

The best part about these books is the specific examples, the author doesn’t hold back any secrets, which is rare when it comes to trading on the stock market.

Additionally, there is a wealth of bonus material that I never realised was there before purchasing this book. There are 7 free resources including two video series, which really helped me as I am more of a visual learner.

Highly recommend listening, and I can't wait to explore more of your books.
