Very happy with this, table was great value for me (I work from home so needed a 'desk' and a dining table. Nice and sturdy. Even when there was a problem with the delivery the third party company were very helpful sorting it out for me. Easy to put together too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, too little substance., 11 Jan 2011
This book starts out promisingly enough but the last half is cheap filler. Do yourself a favour and avoid this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you are starting out.., 22 Dec 2008
I bought this book along with another book on derivatives - I'm a developer with little previous experience of the finance markets, but thought this author warranted the effort of my adding a review.

I found this book really useful to get an overview of what happens in the city (and why). Now I can move on to other books which detail actual financial products with an understanding of the bigger picture.

What I really like about this book is the fact that the examples are simple enough to grasp the concept, and that the information given in each chapter builds on previous chapters, so you can see where a concept fits in to the 'workings' of the city.

As a developer who doesn't know the ins and outs of finance, but needs to have an overview in order to his job, this book was fantastic.
