From the Back Cover:

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT AND MISMANAGEMENT: History, Findings, and Analysis is designed for academic researchers, legal professionals, and practitioners who are interested in the various issues surrounding both professional and individual investment management. These issues include performance, anomalies, market timing, suitability, and churning, among others. The construct of mismanagement is presented in light of the impact of various costs on investment returns.

"The book starts with a concise, yet informative, history of the primary entities of the investment industry. The first part of the book interestingly points out that many of the industry’s challenges are not particularly new, but have been played out again and again throughout the existence of our financial markets. Against that backdrop, the author then proceeds to lay out the myriad of challenges inherent in today’s environment. The book covers important topics, ranging from mutual funds’ inability to consistently provide value, to the performance of individual investors. As to the problems of suitability and churning, the material clearly leads the reader to understand that these issues are rooted in the traditional method of compensation to brokers. The conflict of interest inherent in this method cannot be resolved until the manner of compensation is revised. This is a good review for the experienced investment professional, as well as an excellent overview for the novice."

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Written by the team who brought you Inside Relational Databases . Bill Marklyn, as the development manager for the first two major releases of Access, oversaw the entire design and so provides an intimate knowledge of the product. Mark Whitehorn designs and builds databases but is best known for his popular and long running database column in the UK s Personal Computer World . These two authors make a perfect team. Bill Marklyn knows the product inside out and Mark Whitehorn makes the information accessible. Neil Fawcett, Group Technical Editor, VNU Business Publications PCW and contributor Mark Whitehorn is that rare combination - an expert in his field, databases, and a fine writer too, with a talent for honing a complex subject down to its essentials. Tamsin Todd - Computers Internet Editor, Accessible Access 2000 assumes that you start with no knowledge of Access or databases and takes you to the point where you can create and use a multi-table database. (For more information, see chapter one). It is written in the highly readable style of the authors previous book; a style that was much appreciated by readers: Inside Relational Databases is excellent. It is clearly and concisely written and full of humorous asides which ease the reader through an otherwise weighty topic. Probably the most engaging technical book I have read. Paul McGowan As a result of ordering and studying your excellent book, Inside Relational Databases , it is now required reading for all my students. This e-mail is simply to say thank you for a superb and understandable publication. I ve learned a lot from it, and I m sure my delegates will too. Ian Wilshaw.
