Amazon review of this book: 'This is a fantastic guide to navigating one's way through the Master Agreement. The book is written in clear, concise language which makes it easy for novices to understand, whilst at the same time providing a great deal of information to a more seasoned negotiator. This book is an excellent follow on to the [public] course presented by the "Derivatives Documentation" team. I think this is an investment for ISDA Master Agreement negotiators.'
