This review is from: Financial Times Guide to How the Stock Market Really Works (5th Edition) (Financial Times Guides) (Paperback)it is a good book , I am an accounting student and my college textbook has a chapter on bonds and securities but does not really explain it so after I read this book I understood how bonds and shares work in the real world, it is mainly designed for UK readers but it is very useful for american readers as well. It is very helpful for new investors and anybody who does not know much about the financial market. There are a few very good study cases in this book which explain how investments might go wrong. I DO recommend this book !!
