Book Description

8 Jun 2010 1408017490 978-1408017494 2nd
The new edition of Business Analysis and Valuation builds on the strong success of the first IFRS edition, providing students with the knowledge of how to use financial statement information to assess a firm's financial performance, value, and creditworthiness. The text is primarily aimed at Masters and upper-level undergraduate programs in business and builds a bridge between accounting and finance, therefore making it accessible to both finance and accounting students. The distinctive strengths of this text include a large number of real-world cases used to illustrate theory; the step-by-step analysis methodology, and the extensive discussion of strategy analysis. The presentation of material is based on business analysis before financial analysis, which ensures that financial analysis is approached in a real-world manner and is driven by strategy. The pedagogy is geared toward helping students to develop strong practical skills using current applications and supported by the extra interactive material on the companion website. This new edition retains some of the most popular Harvard cases from the previous edition alongside new Harvard cases and a range of long and short cases on European and international companies written by the adapting author, Erik Peek.

4.0 out of 5 stars Specifc, well written and insightful 8 Feb 2009
The book provides a good and broad (though somewhat shallow in certain areas) overview of the accountant rules governing IFRS. The case approach is very entertaining, and it covers almost all the adjustment techniques you will need to balance a company's accounts. However, this is not an introductory book to accounting, and so many concepts are taken for granted (eg consolidation methods, risk analysis, etc).
My recommendation is to definitely buy it, read the cases, and keep it in the your office/study desk drawer. It is a great reference book when you come across strange adjustments in the IFRS balance sheets.

This text, unlike many other academic student books actualy takes a 'real world' look at business examples. The cases chosen in the book are a good sample which cover each chapter well. Interest levels are maintained throughout due to this real case approach which allows the reader to learn a few 'home truths' about household companies such as "the Gap". For anyone studying Accounting & Business Analysis this is certainly a title to consider.
