Featured Book: Personal Finance and Investments

Written by Keith Readhead, this book is the ideal course book for the growing number of options in personal finance and money management, explaining the investment and financing strategies available to individual investors and including various case studies and exercises.
 

In this book, the author draws from finance, psychology, economics, and other disciplines in business and the social sciences, recognizing that personal finance and investments are subjects of study in their own right rather than merely branches of another discipline.

Considerable attention is given to topics which are either ignored or given very little attention in other texts. These include:

  • the psychology of investment decision-making
  • stock market bubbles and crashes
  • property investment
  • the use of derivatives in investment management
  • regulation of investments business.

Packed with over one hundred exercises, examples and exhibits and a helpful glossary of key terms, this book helps readers grasp the relevant principles of money management. It avoids non-essential mathematics and provides a novel new approach to the study of personal finance and investments.

The book also comes with a supporting website that includes two updated chapters, a new article featuring a behavioural model of the dot com, further exercises, a full glossary and a regularly updated blog from the author.
