Book Description

27 May 2003
Benefit-Cost Analysis offers the perfect introduction to benefit–cost analysis. The book closely integrates the theory and practice of benefit–cost analysis using a spreadsheet framework. The spreadsheet model is constructed in a truly original way which contributes to transparency, provides a check on the accuracy of the analysis, and facilitates sensitivity, risk and alternative scenario assessment. A case study incorporating the various issues is progressively developed on a spreadsheet with the links between each stage thoroughly explained. The complete case study spreadsheet can serve as a template for the reader's own appraisal of projects in the field. In addition to the worked examples in the text some exercises are appended at the end of each chapter. For further information please visit

2.0 out of 5 stars Has Excel-related topics, but a mess to read 16 Feb 2011
By Gadgester - Published on
I had to buy this book for a CBA course and I must say it's quite disappoining. The instructor picked the book because it has Excel-related topics such as examples and exercises and case studies, but the book itself is poorly written and organized. The heading style, for example, does not define the hierarchy of topics well, and the writing is a mixture of theory and examples, making it difficult for a student to pick out the important points such as "rules" or "principles."

What prompted me to write this review, as a matter of fact, is the mess that's surrounding the examples using the @RISK software, in chap. 9. They give you an example, "risk example 1," and show you the steps to using @RISK, but then in fig. 9.6(d), they present results from example 2 which has yet to be presented. Just annoying.

This book could have been a very useful and practical text had it been better organized and undergone professional editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pragmatic-useful Book. 2 Mar 2010
By Hector Quiteno - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a professor of benefit - cost analysis in El Salvador, Central America. Most of the materials in the field are expensive or too techical and complicated for an intensive-introductory course at the master level (I Teach in the Finance area). I find this book very easy to understand, concepts and examples are developed accross the book for a continuing presentation of ideas and the cases are clearly written. Calculations of shadow prices are very simple, a pragmatic appproach that I find very useful for those not interested in becoming scientists in the field, but professionals who know the COMPLETE process of evaluating a project and its impacts from both the private and public perspectives. It would be good to consider translation into spanish, as there are very few books available in our language, most of them complex as I described before.

3.0 out of 5 stars Punctuality 14 Sep 2007
By Sarah - Published on
It was delivered faster than expected. Good service and delivery. Somehow, I was surprised to find that my 1st order frm Bargainbook was processed as somehow it was out of stock at the time and I made new order. Well, both orders came to me, unexpectedly frm Bargain Bookstore.
