From the Back Cover
One of the exciting developments in finance over the last 20 years has been the growth of derivatives markets. In many situations, both hedgers and speculators find it more attractive to trade a derivative on an asset than to trade the asset itself. Some derivatives are traded on exchanges. Others are traded by financial institutions, fund managers, and corporations in the over-the-counter market, or added to new issues of debt and equity securities. Much of this book is concerned with the valuation of derivatives. The aim is to present a unifying framework within all derivatives-not just options or futures-can be valued.

Now, in my professional life, it is one of the books sitting on my desk. I use it regularly and have to sometimes fight colleagues to get it back!
For the ones who want to get deeper in theoretical backgrounds, Shreve's "Stochastic Calculus for Finance Volumes 1 & 2" can be used as complimentary to this nice book of Hull, which can optimise the benefit I believe, providing deeper theoretical knowledge in the field. (But especially Volume 2 of Shreve is more a graduate level)
