    Must have book

    I am a MBA student, and from my perspective this book teaches concepts that you can apply in your day to day life. One needs some mathematical background to fully understand the concepts. There are some errors in the first edition so don't be surprised if the text book answers do not match yours. This book has covered lot of fundamentals about stocks, bonds ,portfolios, amortization, present values, risks etc. in a very easy to understand language with many good examples. I highly recommend this book for both business and non business users.
