Beware, the book has around 40 (!) authors, besides somewhat misleading cover statement about four persons (they are only editors). As a result the text is not consistent and uniform, although it has well-written parts like chapter 5 on asset allocation, which is co-authored by William Sharpe. Overall it is useful reference text if you already have enough knowledge of portfolio management process, but not something you will like to read in consecutive order.

For someone wanting a technical textbook, this is very good. For someone who wants more than just a textbook, or just really doesn't have any professional knowledge in the portfolio management field, and wants advise for managing his/her portfolio that is easy to understand and comprehend, this book is not for you.

Book was in excellent condition and shipping was fast.

Bought this book a while back to add to my personal library and completely enjoyed reading the book as well as working all the problems/calculations that came in the study manual (workbook) that can be purchased seperately.

While the book may not be for everyone I completely enjoyed reading the book and working all the calculations. Would recommend the book to others who enjoy reading financial textbooks such as I do. However I would not encourage someone to read it unless they already have a solid understanding of finance otherwise it may be beyond the scope of their comprehension.

Note: This book was purchased for hobby reading since my academic and professional background is finance, however I am not a CFA or plan on sitting for the CFA Exam.
