    This book is a good place to start for the aspiring futures trader. It tries to answer the questions on why you should trade futures, what the nature of the futures market consists of, the mechanics of futures trading, and the main reasons for price behavior. The book covers both the fundamental valuations due to supply and demand and the aspects of technical trading the futures charts. The books reviews spreads, option contracts for futures and the money management necessary for traders to stay in the futures trading game. The book shows the studies that try to determine who wins in the futures trading game and why. The book does a great job of going through each futures market and explains what exactly is being traded, the basics about that futures contracts market and the size of the contracts and the means for which they are deliverable by. Very interesting and informative book.

    This is the definitive book on learning about the futures markets. One guy said that the futures market is the fastest game in town. And indeed it is a fast paced game. The authors go into the BASICS OF THE GAME, PLAYING THE GAME AND TRADING, LOSERS AND WINNERS, BROKERS and CHOOSING THE GAME AND IT'S MARKETS. The authors go quite in-depth in regards to explaining all of the different markets and the things which effect them. I would encourage any aspiring want-a-be futures trader get this book.

    I bought the second edition, in paperback in 2000. It was good enough that I used it, as well as a specific book regarding regulations, to pass the Series 3 (Futures) licensing exam. Of the six dozen books about futures that I bought several years later, none came close to the quality and presentation of the information found in the second edition. Unfortunately the book disappeared, and when I wanted to clarify some information that I couldn't quite remember, I bought this, the third edition. But I'm finding it disjointed, sometimes clumsy, and no longer a 'bible' for futures. Charts and tables have been updated (now they are just a decade old), and I think financials have new material, but I don't have the feeling that the author/editor has the grasp and knowledge of the previous authors. It's like the author/editor calls this the third edition for sales reasons, but it should be considered (just) another book about futures. I'm disappointed, and will probably sell this and buy the second edition again.

    Awesome book. The part on risk management is worth the price of admission alone

    All traders need this on their shelf. Good to have for reference.

    I am a long time futures investor and I have several books on the subject. This book: "The Futures Game" is superb. It is complete and the only one to consult.

    From the table of contents, you'd think this is the best book about futures you could get. "Traders Notes"? Too bad, no real insights from real traders. Can you read this book and understand the importance of calculating different hedges; why a speculator should care what hedges are common for different contracts (so one can interpret the news); how to interpret contango for different contracts? This is a large book (well over 600 pages) that looks like it was written simply by collecting introductory articles from a number of sources.
