A Comprehensive Ground-Floor View of Investment Banking
Everything from key terms to advanced strategies
Investment Banking Explained provides a clear overview of this complex industry. It covers the history, key terms, structures, and strategies of investment banking and breaks the business down into its respective specialties--from traders, brokers, and analysts to relationship managers, hedgers, and retirement planners--illustrating how each contributes to the industry as a whole.
Written by a high-level investment-banking veteran, this comprehensive guide examines the operations of the world's most successful firms and their shifting approach to risk. It then travels to capital markets around the world to explain how investment banks are forging their international strategies.
Investment Banking Explained is the first step to gaining a clear and complete understanding of one of the most complicated, rapidly expanding, and critically important industries in the world today.

So I don't really know what purpose this book serves. I had to turn to other books to understand the concepts in this book, and when I came back to this book, I wasn't learning anything new.
If the writer bothered to edit and structure the information properly, build up the info steadily, and update it (most of the info is up-to-date for 2005-7, with some clumsy "bolt-ons" for 2008), then it could make a decent overview of the basics and recent history. As it is, it's a clumsy mess with pockets useful info hidden throughout. Not recommended for beginners: maybe best as a refresh for someone interested in the recent history of IB?
This book is not that well structured and talks more about what happened in the banking world however fails to relate that to specifics of the instruments/counterparties/how it relates to the details involved. Felt like reading case studies with little understanding given of the conclusions drawn from it. If the chapter talks about a topic, it assumes that you already know the basics of it and aware of how the asset class operates (which was not the case in my situation). If you are new to investment banking then this might not be the book for you.
