As a complete newbie here, could anyone suggest a good first book on investment banking for me? Without too many equations to befuddle me (although I work with equations all day).

Heres my background: +PhD in mechanical engineering +Masters in mechanical engineering +Bachelors in mechanical engineering

+Research focuses on non-linear partial differential equations and fluid flow.

Just one book?!

Look for Benjamin Grahams' The Intelligent Investor.

He is cited as one of Warren Buffetts greatest influences, and he seems a fairly successful guy!
