This book is very thorough on the maths bits, but the text is poorly written and the structure is not always intuitive. It does not have any practice exercises, which takes another star off the rating.

Quantitative Financial Economics: Stocks, Bonds and Foreign Exchange (Financial Economics and Quantitative Analysis Series)This textbook is excellent as an introduction to asset pricing. The book covers many various concepts and is well explained.

Compared to other texts such as Campbell, Lo, MacKinlay - "The Econometrics Of Financial Markets" and Cochrane - "Asset Pricing" this book is more comprehensive on the math part. Of the the other aforementioned texts this is definitely the "easiest" one, yet I do believe this is the true strenght of the book, because it is not written for Ph.d students but advanced ungergrads or graduate students.

The book is excellent as a reference, or brush up before reading the e.g Cochrane Asset Pricing, however many of the concepts is also directly usable.

I can definietly recommed buying this book, if you seek a comprehensive insight to asset pricing theory.

book was delivered in good condition and at a discounted rate from the retail price. Would recommend to people who have one weeks time in hand (for a standard delivery).
