I am looking for some basic information on investing and pricing convertible bonds. I have seen some books at Amazon, but very few and many are out of print. "Pricing Of Convertible Bonds" at the sight was a little too complex and involved several hundred pages of algebra and complex spread sheets. If this is what is required, then its a lost cause. I love math and algebra as much as the next guy, but don't have the time or expertise for that kind of investing strategy. Is there a more basic way to use these great investment vehicles?

Question two: Is there a website that gives bond offerings and current prices that include convertibles? My discount broker does not handle them.

Thanks,

J
