2.0 out of 5 stars The Search box didn't work in Kindle on this dictionary
I used the search box in Kindle to find the term 'underlying' (as in an underlying stock or asset in derivatives) and it returned a blank - No such term found. And yet the definition of a derivative in the book referred to an 'underlying stock' and an 'underlying financial asset', so why didn't the Kindle search find these terms when I keyed them in?

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor binding that will last about ten minutes so buy if you want lots of loose pages, 10 Sep 2011
