5.0 out of 5 stars Pike and Neale 21 Dec 2005
Format:Paperback
This book is simply the best book ever written. I purchased it for my second yr Accountancy & Finance degree, and i prefer it over the recommended text in the 3rd year. It provides plenty of information put to the reader in a very understable way. The case studies and examples not only help the reader to understand the subject, but it also gives a starting point for further research into companies, when it comes to essay writing! I WISH PIKE AND NEALE WERE MY LECTURES BECAUSE THEIR WRITING GIVES RISE TO COMMON SENSE UNDERSTANDING!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Corporate Finance and Investment by Pike, R. and Neale, B. 5 Aug 2005
By Elijah Chingosho - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The authors of "Corporate Finance and Investment", Richard Pike and Bill Neale produced a high quality textbook on corporate finance which is an excellent companion for those people delving into the subject. The simple and practical style used by the authors make the book suitable for a wide range of audiences including finance/accounting or business practitioners, students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Readers will benefit from extensive examples and illustrations on the application of concepts pertaining to finance and investments. The authors clearly show the relationship between corporate finance and strategic management. The theory is carefully blended with practice that, I as a practitioner, can clearly see how I can apply the concepts that I would have read. Although I am based in Kenya, I find the book very relevant and useful to the local environment.
