5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook used by Stanford and Harvard business schools for their core finance class 11 Dec 2013
By Victor Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
An extremely well-written, up-to-date textbook. The authors explain the material step by step, clearly and logically. The presentation is attractive, with excellent use of color, diagrams, and boxes that explain concepts and common mistakes to avoid. The authors have also gone out of their way to keep the text up-to-date and relevant, and inserted many examples of how the material is used in the real world. The authors also conduct interviews with notable financial practitioners to understand how they apply financial thinking in major applications. Special attention is given to addressing the recent global financial crisis and the ongoing sovereign debt crisis. This is an outstanding textbook written by professors at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. It is used for the core finance classes at Stanford GSB and Harvard Business School, and deserves to be the standard text for the subject.
