I dont agree with the previous reviewer at all, compared to other books on the same topic that I looked through (Madura, Moosa, Shapiro etc) I found this one to be really easy to understand and read, the presentation is very good as well. Even though it is comparatively easy to read it does not compromise on the mathematical components, although it is not as rigurous mathematically as Moosa's book 'International Finance'. You dont need extensive prior knowledge of macroeconomics, some basic economics is enough, the first five chapters will introduce the relevant bits.
