Format: Hardcover
Guide to Financial, by Marc Levinson (former Finance Editor of the Economist) is an excellent introduction to the financial markets. Levinson provides a practical, concise, readable examination of the topic, which is useful for the novice financier. I would highly recommend this book for finance or economics graduates, wishing to pursue a career in finance/banking. It will arm you with very useful finance knowledge you won’t have gained in the classroom. The book examines the where, when, why, what and how of bond, money, foreign exchange, equity, financial futures, commodities, securitisation, options and derivatives markets.

definitely recommended. Gives a clear and comprehensive overview of financial markets and products - nicely written rather being full of formulas... so explains concepts very well. Good buy!

... if you're looking for an introductory/ beginners' guide to financial markets.

This book is essentially an overview of financial markets, but it can be particularly unintelligible and assumes that you already have at least an intermediate/ graduate level understanding of this subject.

I'm currently in the throes of finishing a degree in Economics, and I found this book to be confusing, frustrating and, as a consequence of it not explaining key-concepts well, utterly tedious. If I hadn't studied economics at the level that I have, then I would have been completely lost.

I didn't rate it 1 star because it doesn't explicitly say that this guide is for beginners. Unless you have a good grasp of the subject material already and are wishing to merely consolidate your knowledge and understanding, then avoid this book.

My advice would be to use Wikipedia or Khan Academy, if you're interested in learning about financial markets from scratch, as both elucidate this subject far more than this book, and they're free resources.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides a great overview of the workings of the financial markets. It is accessible to beginners on the subject, while still providing quite a bit of detail. Ideal for anyone who wants a "snapshot" of today's financial markets!
