8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Nuwan Perera on 16 Oct. 2008
Format: Hardcover
This book presents a very straight forward and a practical approach in explaining complicated financial concepts. One salient difference of this book, when compared to other Corporate Finance books is that, the author draws very good practical examples at various stages when explaining the actual use of financial concepts.

My motivation for buying this book was two fold.

Firstly I wanted to refresh the subject matter I learned under Financial Management of the MBA program I followed sometime back. Although at the moment I am not very much involved in Finance related activities, in future it is likely that my job scope will involve Finance to a greater extent. The simplicity of explanations and the practical insights suggest that you do NOT need to have followed an MBA to understand the concepts.

Secondly the decision to buy this book was fairly swift. This is because I was already reading one of the books co-authored by the same author John Tennent which is "Guide to Financial Modeling" which is yet another down right practical guide to financial modeling.

This book strikes a very rare balance between Simplicity (In Explaining), Practicality and Comprehensiveness of the subject matter covered. In my opinion this book fills up a much needed void in the field of Financial Management.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sally Bigwood on 7 Jan. 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is highly practical, comprehensive and comprehensible book on financial management for non-finance managers. I happened to find it on the bookshelf of my local Waterstone's Book Shop a couple of years ago and although £20 is a lot to pay I've found it worth every penny. It has improved my understanding of what accountants do, the challenges they face and how they can help you add value to the organisation.
The author writes with ease and confidence about a subject he knows well. The book is well organised and looking up specific issues or topics is easy. The non-finance person has no trouble following the author's points yet never feels patronised. There is a ten-page glossary.
Chapter 3 'The Role of the Finance Department' has proved particularly useful to me. (Personally, I'd make all financial directors read it; so many of them seem to have forgotten the role of their department, if they ever knew.) Relevant sections in this chapter include "What managers need to know", "Designing management information" and "Working with finance". The author goes into some detail on how to make financial information readable. It's rare to find such ideas in finance books - possibly one reason why many accountants cannot communicate with stakeholders, but are first rate at adding up columns of numbers.
This is an excellent book, useful to anyone working with accountants or other finance people.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rob Leonard on 25 Jun. 2008
Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed reading this book. I have been looking for a really practical finance book for years and at last I have found one. On a day to day basis I have to manage budgets, create forescasts etc. The book has provided me with a some insights that I have been able to put into practice straight away. However, occasionally I have deal with other potentially more complex areas such as submitting business cases and wrestling with product costs and the book covers these as well and has really helped. I like the focus on "real world" issues and examples. The book is easy to read and understand even when it is covering the more complex topics. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to really understand finance to be effective in their job.

Excellent primer on financial management. John Tennent makes financial management and accounting accesible with excellent examples and a clarity of communication that makes even, usually difficult concepts, easy to understand.
Excellent overview of financial management 9 April 2013
By Dan Rohleder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is written at a base level, allowing for non-financial students to comprehend the topics discussed. It covers a large area and does not delve too deep into any one area. A great overview.
