It should be out-of-print or something and then Prentice-Hall found it cheaper to photocopy and bind it, rather then issuing a new edition. Amazon.com should let customers know this in advance.
The book content is great as the other reviewers have said, but I'm about to see a book with worse print quality than the one Amazon sent me.
I wish I have bought a used book, printed 15 years ago, for US$ 40.
It covers the CAPM model for example, but doesn't go into enough detail so that a reader can really get a good grasp of the model. Also, it shies away from using proper mathematical analysis of some models (as with many other American textbooks) which will give a naive reader a false sense of security.
Otherwise a great book, it's breadth and readability is excellent - would love an update sometime :)
