From the Paper:

"Most investors want to earn the highest possible yield and growth rate with the lowest possible risk. But maximum profit and low risk are not compatible attributes. As a bond investor, they must be aware of relationship between the risk and potential reward, or opportunity. Risk in its many forms will determine whether an investment is appropriate or not and will it earn the yield you wanted. The different kinds of bond risk are: (1) interest rate risk, (2) default risk, (3) business risk, (4) marketability risk, (5) inflation risk, and (6) event risk."
