This is another brilliant book by Fabozzi & Drake. One of the distinguising features is the way the authors present the field of finance in three macro areas: financial markets, corporate finance, and investment management. It’s like having three books in one. They’ve done a great job in producing this financial piece of art by effectively blending technical lexicon with straightfroward explanations relying on a comprehensive and didactic approach. I strongly recommend it for both the seasoned professional seeking to enrich his or her financial knowledge as well as for the beginner looking to create a framework for the study of finance.
I have two observations for the publisher. First, the page quality is not the same as, say, Fabozzi’s Introduction to Securitization (which I also bought in the same purchase order) or other books of the Fabozzi series. Second, the John Wiley logo got printed by mistake in the middle of a page, thus, making a paragraph incomplete. I hope, with due respect, that I did not purchase a trial version of the book as I pre-ordered it one month before release.
