The fixed income markets dwarf the equity markets in size, but receive far less media attention. This book takes the reader on a logical tour of the what and why, from a definition of money itself to reasons for the explosion in the use of dreaded "derivative contracts". Simple explanations, real-life examples and a more than superficial treatment make this the definitive introduction to the subject.

As someone who knew next to nothing about financial markets but was frantically preparing for various interviews in said sector, this book was a godsend! Surprisingly slim, written in a colloquial and friendly tone yet efficient and concise : this book serves as an excellent overview of some of the key concepts and key players in finance and explains how they all fit together. A few years on, this is often the book I recommend to friends / relatives who want to know a bit about what I do!
