Editorial Reviews


"...Tavakoli uses her broad professional experience to examine the CDO market in simple and clear language."

"Tavakoli...does what she can to address this market's growing pains in...this intriguing book"
--Hedge World

"Janet Tavakoli warned the world this disaster was coming well in advance. Now she explains it again for those who did not listen before as well as why it is not over yet. You need to read this book to understand the biggest credit bubble in world history."
--Jim Rogers, author of A Bull in China, Hot Commodities, Adventure Capitalist, and Investment Biker,

"Janet Tavakoli's new book provides an insider view into the opaque world of structured finance and collateralized debt obligations. With its clear explanations of numerous structured-finance innovations, I expect this book to become the 'Rosetta Stone' for deciphering these markets. This book is a service to the investment community."
--Hilary Till, Cofounder, Premia Capital Management, LLC

"Janet Tavakoli explains the complex world of structured finance with unusual flair and colorful anecdotes from securitization's front lines. An indispensable and up-to-date guide for anyone seeking greater understanding of the CDO market."
--Charles C. Henneman, CFA, Head, Educational Programs and Events, CFA Institute

"Janet Tavakoli has been able to dissect, with a brisk style, the intricacies of many structured products. Not only does she explain in a clear and insightful manner how certain things work, but more important, why others do not work!"
--Arturo Cifuentes, PhD, Managing Director, R.W. Pressprich & Co.

"Stan O'Neal, Marcus Ospel, and more than a few other bold-face names in finance might still have jobs if they'd taken the trouble to read this book. Janet Tavakoli takes the complexities of today's derivatives markets and makes them both comprehensible and digestible for everybody from the practitioner to the interested observer."
--Greg Newton, Founding Publisher, MAR/Hedge

"Janet Tavakoli is exceptional in having worked extensively both in mortgage securitization and structured credit at major financial institutions. In this clearly written book, she shares her in-depth knowledge of structuring, valuation, and risk management of structured products. This book is a must read for regulators and risk managers to keep up with the latest developments in structured finance."
--Joseph Masri, PhD, Barclays Global Investors, Regional Director, Professional Risk Managers' International Association (PRMIA)
