The author goes on tangents constantly, and seemed to have just discovered what a thesaurus was when he wrote it. There's a difference between writing at a college level and using obscure words to make a sentence lose meaning. I enjoy reading, and I can read for either business or pleasure just as well, but this text makes me dread every chapter assigned. It really needs to decide if it wants to be a math textbook or a "history of finance" one, because it does justice to neither aspects of the subject.
But, as I said, what choice do you have? Get the book, or fail the class.
