Educational but Redundant

This book is a wonderful way to build one background knowledge about investment banking and about investing. I was a little bit annoyed at how redundant the chapters were. Perhaps that way by design, because these types of Dummy books are not meant to be read from cover to cover.

Overall, I'm glad I read it. I feel more knowledgeable for sure.

The case study towards one of the latter chapters is very helpful. The history of investment banking was interesting and the history of the classic estimate will make a great conversation.

Helped supplement my CFA curriculum

I was looking for something to listen to to give additional color to my CFA readings. It was actually really useful to combine these resources. The only problem with the audio version is the reader would read out the entire link to websites (says "h-t-t-p-colon-slash-slash-w-w-w-dot"). Meanwhile I think every knows how to get to Google finance without the description

Good

Solid. Straight forward. Not a lot of behind the curtain looks into the industry, but still thorough.

Integrering and helpful start

While a little detailed at times, this book is a good place to start familiarizing oneself with the most important things within the investment banking industry.

A phenomenal book.

I have really enjoyed it. The area of the investment banking wasn't my strong side After listening this book I know what I need to know about that matter. I am sure thus book is for professional bankers and investors to remind them why they are here and what they should fo to accomplish the fundamental goal of the investment banking. Thank you very much to the authors. A great job.
