    Reviews

    "This is an excellent book that introduces financial asset pricing theory as a natural extension of microeconomic and general equilibrium theory. The exposition of classic and recent results is clear, thorough and accessible to any economist or graduate student who has a good grounding in microeconomic theory. Having mastered this material the reader is well equipped to tackle the many variations of asset pricing models in the literature." --Frank Milne, Queen’s University, Professor of Economics and Finance "This book is ideally suited to students wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the basic concepts of financial economics beyond those presented in a typical MBA program without having to deal with unnecessary mathematical details. The exposition is superb and enriching of intuition. The book, written by two of the professions leading experts, is unique." -- Rajnish Mehra, Professor of Finance, University of California, Santa Barbara
