This book covers a wide range of topics in surprising detail I wish I had this type of book when I was getting into finance It can serve as an overview for novices, or it can serve as a reference for practitioners I highly recommend this book for anyone coming from another field who is interested in learning about finance, or I recommend it to those who work in the industry and would like to expand their knowledge base. I ve worked in quant research for several years, and have read a lot of books that aimed to do what this one does However, this book covers some very unique and diverse ground, but still hits the narrative and pieces needed to drive the fundamentals. I ll definitely keep this one on the shelf to revisit
