This book is a feast to motivated students of finance and markets. The clinical approach and the authors have a way of cutting to the bone revealing the bare essentials of India's Financial Markets. Their viewing the system through the lens of Financial markets allows them to get rid of superfluous info. The book is in the tradition of TRADING & EXCHANGES by Larry Harris. Their tight packing of information laced with empirical research is worth reading, re reading, chewing and digesting. The mark of a truly lasting book is the fresh insights it provides every time you reopen it. In terms of economy of words and space this book reminds me of PHYSICS by Resnick & Halliday.
