Summary

Bodie, Kane, and Marcusí Investments sets the standard for graduate/MBA investments textbooks. It blends practical and theoretical coverage, while maintaining an appropriate rigor and a clear writing style. Its unifying theme is that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes.

The text places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts. It is also the only graduate Investments text to offer an online homework management system, McGraw-Hillís Connect Finance.

wonderful textbook March 10, 2011

Good textbook, I'm still reading it but throughout what I've read I can say that this textbook has clear writing style and is very helpful and useful for those who study financial investment. This investment textbook places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts. Having found this book, I'll never need another on the subject. Reading this book is like listening to a wise mentor.
