Abigail Doolittle, Options Insight on Bloomberg Television"Carley Garner is one of the premier voices on trading options and commodity futures. She is as authentic as she is knowledgeable.

Bob-Iaccino-CNBC-Bloomberg-Fox Business News"Carley Garner is a friend of mine, which has precisely zero to do with why I’m writing this. We didn’t start as friends, but we spoke at a trading event together and I was so impressed with her knowledge of markets in general and commodity options specifically, that we become friends. Mainly because I’m constantly asking for her analysis on markets and she’s kind enough to give it to me. Read her latest book, “Trading Commodity Options with Creativity” and you’ll see exactly why I regard her as highly as I do. She’s one of the two best technical and price action analysts I know (the other is my business partner of 15 years) and she knows options, like she created them. This book not only teaches you what options are, but how they work, how futures options are different from stock options (they are) and why they are better in many situations. Carley covers creative strategies that other people know about, but aren’t knowledgeable enough to use, let alone teach, and she covers the gray areas that many other option books don’t even gloss over. If you believe as I do, that the math covering your risk and reward proposition is more important than the math behind the Black-Scholes model, then this book is for you. I highly recommend you read this book. At least twice …."- Bob Iaccino, CEO Co-Founder Path Trading Partners, Co-CIO The Stock Think Tank , Host and Co-founder PureXposure Growth Series

Scott Shellady the Cow Guy"I have 32 years of experience in the finance industry. I have written columns, been an Adjunct Finance Professor, frequently appear on multiple financial news channels and most enjoyably, slugged it out in the hand to hand combat of the real-life trading pits of Chicago and London. I have often thought about writing a book that is straight forward, simple, and full of common sense. It seems that someone has beaten me to the punch. Throughout this book, Carley is able to present things like I would present things. She explains strategies like I would explain strategies. The ideas in this book can often at times be intimidating and confusing – Carley strips away those barriers and gets right down to the brass tacks. Not only does Carley cover commodity options but she leaves no stone unturned in her efforts to give the reader a deep, well-rounded point of view. Take your time, reread a few of the chapters. This book is to be absorbed, not just read. If you walk away with a good understanding of what is presented in this book, you will be ahead of your peers and on very solid footing in the commodity options industry. Truth be told, this book could have been 2 books – maybe 3 books. Carley has given the reader a great bargain with the knowledge she has imparted in this book, all the while raising the bar for any future commodity options trading authors. Congratulations Carley on a job well done."- Scott (The Cow Guy) Shellady

Jim Iuorio, TJM Institutional Services and CNBC Contributor"One of Carley's greatest skills is the ability to make complex topics easy to understand. Trading Commodity Options with Creativity is another example of her skill. Carley's ability is to demystify the sometimes intimidating world of options trading is amazing and valuable to every level of trader. Veteran traders view options as part math and part religion. Once you are indoctrinated into this world you won’t trade without them."-Jim Iuorio, TJM Institutional Services and CNBC contributor.
