Ideal for students doing courses on Investment Management. Very clearly written and explained. Good index. Plenty of references to other writings in the field.

Format: Hardcover
This is basically a textbook at textbook's price, useful for reference only. Too theoretical and technical to be practical. One wonders how one can apply anything written in it, other than feeling impressed by the book's size and the editors' learning. Read it for pleasure if you dare! Many chapters written by Fabozzi, but very few actually by Markowitz. I feel good having a book edited by a Nobel prizewinner sitting on my shelf among my other investment books (and I have many) but that's about all I can say about it.
