Product Description

Product Description

For undergraduate and graduate courses in derivatives, options and futures, financial engineering, financial mathematics, and risk management.

Bridge the gap between theory and practice. 

This title is a Pearson Global Edition.  The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

Designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice, this introductory text on the futures and options markets is ideal for those with a limited background in mathematics.

The eighth edition has been updated and improved—featuring a new chapter on securitization and the credit crisis, and increased discussion on the way commodity prices are modeled and commodity derivatives valued.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Derivatives 21 Jun 2011
By Daniel
Format:Paperback
As I will be working with derivatives soon, I wanted to read a book that gives an overview of the relevant books. This book is exactly what I was looking for. It discusses the instruments with just the right amount of mathematical detail and provides many examples so readers can make sure that they have understood the topic. I also like the fact that each chapter provides a list for further reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books in the market 6 Feb 2014
By SanDan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book: Excellent, 5 stars
Packing and Cover: 2 stars

I have worked through the book previously. I therefore knew the content and quality. It is an excellent book. The treatment of derivatives are appropriate. Personally, I thought there isn't a great deal of mathematical treatment, which may help the readers, who are not mathematically extensively inclined.

Packing and covers: I should have opened the packing, in time, to check for any damages. It was too late to return and seek a replacement as the back cover and binding sides of the book are damaged and torn. It is not a big deal, though I would have still loved a replacement. I would expect the seller/amazon to exercise care while packing and sending paperback books. Perhaps, amazon/sellers may want to consider entertaining replacement requests for an extended period of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good condition 9 Dec 2013
By B. M.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thank you for the expedient service. Book was as advertised. Good condition. Used for a course I am taking and fulfilled my expectations. Some of the methods in the book are a bit different than those normally used.

Bought the Kindle edition, but have been unable to read it yet because for some bizarre reason the author chose to limit the type of devices this book could be read on. So no IPhone, No Android, and no Kindle Cloud reader (the only 3 devices Im allowed to use at work).
This makes this purchase an extraordinary failure, despite my desperate need to read this book (necessary reading in my new contract)
Bad, silly inconsiderate author

4.0 out of 5 stars Misprint of pages and old software 20 Jan 2012
By Michael
Format:Paperback
It was a dissappointing experience to find out that the section for Variance Swaps and VIX was misprinted.

If the 8th edition should complete the recent updates as J. Hull is referring to, I think it is in the interest of the audience to see that upgrading also applies to the software to go with the book. Particularly, for Mac users who happen to have the Office applications updated on their machine will not be able to make use of the Excel GeoDeriv CD-Rom. Software does not run the macros!

Otherwise, the content of the book is a great guidance to what the cover stands for; even for readers who do not have pre-learning experience in financial maths. All stars for the content and the author. Remaining is to the publisher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewing a used copy 9 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, its in an acceptable condition. It was an Indian peninsula edition, the cd was unused. I am happy with it except the paper quality which is due its original printing I guess.
