Book recommendation: QFinance: The Ultimate Resource

QFinance: TheUltimate Resource has just been published by Bloomsbury and it's tagline is certainly no under-statement. The enormous tome comes in at over 2,000 pages and looks set to become an essential source of reference for those people working in finance as well as being a fascinating source of information for others who have an interest in economics more generally. It has contributions from some 300 of the world's leading financial practitioners, visionaries, writers and educators on contemporary financial issues which couldn't be more relevant in the current climate. It also contains a comprehensive financial dictionary, over 2,000 business-relevant quotes, biographies of many leading economists and digests of some of the best financial reads. Oh, and that's not forgetting profiles of over a hundred countries and numerous different sectors as well as over 300 'how to' guides covering the everyday challenges facing the finance professional. The Bloomsbury website has more information on the book and also how to buy it for a discounted price of £125 (RRP £150).
