The Devil’s Financial Dictionary

We rated this book:


This book has been inspired by an early 20th century work titled “The Devil’s Dictionary” which used wit and extreme skepticism to fashion humorous definitions of theological and related terms. In the same vein this book sharply focuses on investments with a tongue-in-cheek approach of “defining” financial terms. This book’s intent is not only to amuse, but also to educate its readers.

Finance does have its share of technical jargon that could be used to baffle casual investors. While not at the level of Bierce’s “The Devil’s Dictionary”, this work is witty, irreverent, skeptical and humorous – making it an entertaining read for those within and outside the financial industry.
