Stock Options by Robert Pastore - from an enthusiast

The book Stock Options: An Authoritative Guide to Incentive and Nonqualified Stock Options by Robert R. Pastore, C.P.A. is considered one of the best and most detailed books on evaluating stock options. I would recommend it to anyone seeking an in-depth understanding of how stock options work and their tax consequences.

I've found very little discussion of it on the web in forums or other pages, so I decided to create this page to possibly spur interest.

If you're a fellow enthusiast, know of a good pocket of existing discussion I can link to, or have questions about the book, please reach out.
