Have you ever loved a subject but found it painstakingly hard to study because your textbook felt like what you assume would be a remnant from 5 centuries ago, written in hieroglyphs and just so dry and boring?

This textbook is not one of those.

It's a very interesting topic this book deals with indeed, and the authors keep the information and the flow of the text easy to follow (or as easy as it is possible with a Finance textbook), always building on and leading up to more harder theories, formulas etc.
There are loads of examples and practical tasks that help your understanding (and calculation) of the important terms etc., which is great as this helps you understand and apply theory better, when you have to think and use what you've read in practice.
Also a huge plus in my book - if you're lazy (which, let's face it, it happens) there are summaries after each chapter that summarizes the key points of each chapter, it's very neat. And unlike some textbooks where the summaries are very vague, that's not the case here. So if you feel like just reading the summary of a chapter, here you have the opportunity to do so - without feeling like the authors are punishing you for not reading the god damn chapter you were supposed to read.
