Overview

Investments, 8th edition, by Bodie, Kane, and Marcus keeps the best blend of practical and theoretical coverage while incorporating new and important topics in the world of investments. This text continues the tradition of an appropriate rigor and clear writing style for the MBA investments student. The unifying theme that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are usually priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes, is continued in the 8th edition.

    The classic of the classics

    I am a poor student but never regret buying this book. All I can say is this book is probably the best book I have ever encountered and no word there is redundant. It is extremely clear and in-depth. I can tell that the authors have great understanding of math and finance. It is not for someone who has no knowledge in finance, it is for poeple who has some financial knowledge. Just my humble opinion. Overall, I think this is the only book you need to read carefully in order to understand investment and finance.
