Kerry Back has created a masterful introduction to asset pricing and portfolio choice. The coverage of topics is comprehensive, starting in a single-period setting and then moving naturally to dynamic models in both discrete and continuous time. The numerous challenging exercises are yet another
big strength. In short, an impressive achievement.

-- Robert F. Stambaugh, Miller Anderson & Sherrerd Professor of Finance, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

Kerry Back offers us a rigorous, but accessible treatment of the asset pricing theory concepts that every doctoral student in finance should learn. A distinguished scholar in the field provides a presentation that is clear yet concise.

-- Eduardo Schwartz, California Chair in Real Estate and Land Economics, UCLA Anderson School of Management

Asset Pricing and Portfolio Choice Theory Kerry Back has given us a comprehensive, rigorous and at the same time elegant and self-contained treatment of the important developments in this vast literature. It will be useful to graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in economics,
finance, financial engineering, and management science as well as interested practitioners.
