The core concepts you expect. The new ideas you want. The pedagogy you need to succeed.
Fundamentals of Corporate Finance’s applied perspective cements understanding of the modern-day core principles by equipping students with a problem-solving methodology and profiling real-life financial management practices—all within a clear valuation framework.
The second edition focuses on new topics and includes an increased emphasis on valuation.
This book makes understanding finance easy–I was intimidated by the subject before taking the course and using the textbook, but the examples and explanations were so clear that now I feel confident about my finance skills. Textbooks are always expensive, but this one was actually worth it!
In my honest opinion Fundamentals of Corporate Finance should be read by anyone considering a career in a finance related field. It is a very easy read yet detailed enough to give the reader a thorough understanding on the subject. Having said that, I must say that the only reason I give this book 4 stars is because the additional topics section has terribly written. If I didn’t understand how options worked, I wouldn’t have learned it from this text. The Mergers & Acquisitions section was a chore to read as the author gave reasons for acquiring a company but shot several of those reasons down due to how expensive running a larger firm is. Other than that, the “required” portion of the text is great!
