Students of Finance and Business will greatly benefit from this comprehensive book by John C. Hull and Sankarshan Basu that presents a clear picture of the derivatives market.

Summary Of The Book

The seventh edition of Options, Futures And Other Derivatives (With CD) is packed with revised and updated information on the derivatives market. The book offers a crisp introduction to options markets and futures.

Since the study of derivatives requires plenty of mathematics and because all the readers might not have a solid mathematical background, the authors have tried to strike a balance between essential and non-essential mathematics and present many numerical problems for better and thorough understanding.

The book is tailored for beginners and no prior knowledge of options markets and futures is required.

The seventh edition of the book is new and improved and contains a variety of newly introduced topics. For instance, it discusses a lot of issues pertaining to the Indian market. Other topics covered include credit derivatives, swaps, Greek letters, binomial trees, volatility smiles, and interest rate futures.

The CD that comes with this edition is an added bonus and lets the users create useful applications in a few simple steps.

The numerical examples and practice questions help in easily understanding the concepts that have been explained. The minimal text in the book offers extensive knowledge and information in the form of theory. The book also features real life accounts and sound logical reasoning.

Options, Futures And Other Derivatives (With CD) was published in 2009 by Pearson.

The Definitive Guide to Derivatives.

I used this book in my second semester for a paper on Derivatives in the MA Financial Economics program I am enrolled in.

The prerequisites for reading this book are minimal and the approach of the author is definitive with clear and simple examples along with rigorous and comprehensive back-questions.

The back-questions will go a long way in drilling the concepts deep into your brain as the subject can be quite challenging and confusing if only the text is read.

Everythin about derivatives in this

As someone says, this is 'Geeta' of Derivatives. Rightly so.
The real world example of various incidents is a key point which makes the reading quite interesting.
It enhances the knowledge so much that a reader can become successful trader as well. :-)

A good book to understand Derivatives

The book is very well presented. The basics of most of the money market instruments are explained and which is followed by detailing of the derivatives and their pricing. It gives some insights into risk modelling and reasonable understanding of Stochastic Finance models.

Kotler of Options and other Derivatives

What Philips Kotler is to marketing, I regard This Book of John C Hull to be in the same bracket for options, futures and other derivatives.

There are only few differences between the 7th and 8th edition and the price is a bargain for 7th edition as i did a compare on all the other E-book sites. Have been reading Hull from its sixth edition stage and the seventh edition ha...
