5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive book on corporate bonds 5 Feb 2006
This is a book which you will keep on your desk as permanent reference guide. This book is particularly comprehensive as it starts out explaining the basics of what makes a bond and how a yield curve is constructed and then moves on to explaining different types of corporate bond markets as well as structured products. Well worth the investment!
Choudhry's keeps a colloquial writing style even when he explains more complex subjects which makes the book an easy read. This book is for anyone who either wants to get started to understand the corporate bond world or for investors who want to broaden and deepen their knowledge of the ever growing fixed income markets.
The reader will benefit from Choudhry's extensive practical knowledge of the fixed income universe as well as from clear theoretical explanations of the underlying maths.
