Given the importance of clear communication and understanding in the financial markets, it is indeed timely and relevant to have the second edition of Professor Rechtschaffen's book available now.

His book encourages the reader to apply the lessons learned during the financial crisis to market opportunities and regulation today. Alan's reasonable approach is a valuable guide to anyone who might have an interest in capital market trading activities. (Ben S. Bernanke)

iCapital Markets, Derivatives and the Law: Evolution After Crisisr is a remarkable and extremely useful instrument in the hands of professionals to understand the legal and business considerations of derivatives transactions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex Made Simple 11 Feb. 2010
By Ozzie Malone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In Capital Market, Derivatives, and the Law, Professor Alan Rechtschaffen takes a complicated but important topic and makes it understandable to the average reader. Our financial regulators -- and everyone else -- need to have it on their bookshelves.
3.0 out of 5 stars Look for the new edition 23 Dec. 2013
By Lawrence Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was, briefly, a very useful introduction to an enormously complex subject. I particularly like the way the author explains the field of derivatives within the context of the broader financial system. But it is badly out of date, having been published before the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, which of course has profoundly reshaped the derivatives markets. I understand that a new edition is in the works and I eagerly look forward to it.

In the mean time, the published have no business still peddling this edition, particularly at the ridiculous price they are charging. In fact I don't understand the pricing strategy at all. No rational buyer would purchase a personal copy at this price (I bought a used copy), so their only market will be libraries that have no choice.

But for the book's datedness and the pricing strategy, I would have been tempted to give the book 4 or 5 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 16 Oct. 2009
By MBH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have heard this author speak on numerous occasions; he has a gift for presenting complicated material in a clear, concise and entertaining fashion. This book demonstrates his ability to transmit information extends to the printed page as well. A fundamental text for anyone trying to make sense of the often confusing instruments at play in today's financial markets.
