I really loved this book and class. I found out that I would really enjoy investment banking. Plus, I also realized how much I like Economics. It has made me excited about getting my Master's. I am looking forward to some more Econ classes next semester.

I finished a course modeled around this book. It's a great primer towards building an understanding of how things are in the financial markets and the role of different stakeholders. But this book particularly shines at clearly illustrating and explaining the housing crisis, probably the best I've understood it.
My only knock against the book is not following up with the proof & derivation of some formulas to see & intuitively process why they make sense.

Not a great textbook layout, and relies a little too heavily on the class using MyEconLab, which my professor chose not to use.

More about Frederic S. Mishkin
“Politicians have often declared that unbridled competition among financial intermediaries promotes failures that will harm the public. Although the evidence that competition does this is extremely weak, it has not stopped the state and federal governments from imposing many restrictive regulations.” 1 likes
“An interest rate is the cost of borrowing or the
price paid for the rental of funds (usually expressed as a percentage of the rental of $100
per year). Many types of interest rates are found in the economy—mortgage interest
rates, car loan rates, and interest rates on many different types of bonds.”
