Format: Hardcover
I really disagree with toomuch123's comment. This is the most accessible book I have ever read on this topic. Too many writers attempt to look smart to the reader and do not bother giving the intuition behind the model. This book cannot be compared to Bodie-Kane-Marcus (BKM)'s books or Hull's bible. Skinner's book really fills a gap. It is much more advanced than BKM's books and much more accessible than Hull's bible. The barriers to entry for this book are very low. I agree with the disappointing content of the CD, but it is enough for this intermediate book (and I really do not care getting a floopy disk instead of a CD).

Well, this book is simply over-priced. A 360 pages book selling at 55 quid, hmm.... do you think its better than either than Bodi's Investments or John Hull's Options, Futures and Other Derivatives? NO WAY. I have to say, the most stupid thing is the attachment of a 1.07M CD!!! If files are so small, why do they use a floppy disc? They put it in this way to induce you guys to purchase it, and I'm the victim.
So here comes the best strategy -- photocopy it! It only costs less than 10 pounds, and in you pockets 45 pounds!!!
