I have used Tuckman's book for teaching for 5 years now. I thought 2nd edition was great, but the updated 3rd edition is even better. The authors managed to give a balanced intro into FI markets, very suitable for anyone who is just being introduced to these markets as a student or as a junior professional. At the same time, the book goes in depth discussing some very interesting cases and shows practical applicaitons. I am in general not a fan of Fabozzi's handbooks because they are too simplistic and superficial. This book dives into deeper discussions but still offers a transaction-oriented view - which is what I believe is most valuable for those learning FI. This is a MUST read

The 3rd Edition of Bruce Tuckman's "Fixed Income Securities" is outstanding. The Introduction gives the best overview of today's fixed income market I have ever read. Part 1 to Part 3 is classic with updated examples. These three parts have educated a whole generation of MBAs and "quants." The new chapters in Part 4, on CDS and mortgage-backed securities, are extremely relevant.

The authors successfully bridge theory and practice. If you want to have just one book on Fixed Income, this is the one.

Better than the Fabozzi books in the market. Practical and very useful. Good for those not mathematically inclined.A must read for those involved in the Fixed Income markets.

Includes relevant topics for practitioners. It is comprehensive enough, with useful tools and avoiding extensive matemathical developments. Fair price vrs similar books. Recommended.

Great content but the Kindle edition is poorly done due to misaligned and improperly sized block equations and numbering, inline equations sticking out, punctuation surrounding equations occasionally overflowing to a separate line etc - definitely not an eye candy. Appears same in cloud reader and on the iPad. I wonder why couldn't they just make a PDF from the source TeX file of the book.

This book is very illustrative in explaining examples of hard theories and formulas. Explanations in pages 260-262 feel moving because they seem to be rooted in the writers' deep understanding of fixed income market.

Tuckman and Serrat are extremely intelligent and have written a great book here. I have not gotten through all of it but this book explains the securities and markets throughout the world well.

Very good read, exactly what I was looking for. Focus on non-math concepts (but equally, if not more, important).
