Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The text is in straight forward terms for easy comprehension and relevant to recent current events in the financial markets world wide. Besides using the book as a textbook for a university course, it is a good read to understand or verfiy what my financial advisor has trying to tell me all these years.

Ps. I found numerous typo errors (5 found) mostly in formalae which took time to confirm.
