This item is good condition and I've made a mistake for the previous comment. However, the cover of the book which I bought is different from the display one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Update to a Classic Text 9 April 2007
By C. Ang - Published on Amazon.com
It took a while before this 4th edition came out. The 2nd and 3rd editions were pretty good, and the 4th ed still contains a lot of the old material. Clearly, this says something about finance theory - but it updates a lot of the empirical results and includes some new/relevant topics. I would have to agree that this book is probably a little shallow for the Ph.D. level, but most Ph.D. corporate finance courses probably would use papers rather than texts. Hence, that's where your actual derivations and the actual author's thought comes from. On the other hand, this book takes a very good approach and the authors are very respected in the field. In terms of a more advanced MBA text, I think that this is the best book available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 9 May 2007
By Max Frisch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had this book for a PhD class in finance and have very few good words to say. The derivations should have been omitted: rarely is anything followed from the beginning to the end; the excerpts that are provided do not give much additional insight. Abundant typos in the formulas. In addition, the context of the models is often poorly presented and I was often left wondering what the situation or some assumptions are. Overall, relatively poorly written.

The book does give an overview of a lot of papers and as long as it is viewed as a starting point to read the papers it is acceptable. Still, the presentation is very fragmented and frustrating, creating a strong desire to read the original papers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, with room for improvement 3 Feb 2011
By Arsene Lupin - Published on Amazon.com
A perfect book to acquaint students with basic principles of finance theory emphasizing the theory of the firm's investment and financing decisions. To accomplish this goal, this textbook focus on basic concepts of decision making under risk, market efficiency, asset pricing, capital structure and dividend policy. This book is definitely for both a master and PhD levels. I used it in MBA Finance, and it did the trick. Please notice this book has a solution manual sold separately.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor printing quality, lots of typos 22 Aug 2011
By Amin Vassefi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is considered poor quality even in a 3rd world country! Several pages are badly copied and misplaced in a manner that parts of the text have droped out of the page! The pages have little margin, and are low quality black and white copies of an original. It looks so cheap. The book has lots and lots of typos, the worse part is, most of them are in formulas and mathematical areas where precision is of key importance to ones ability to comprehend. Overally, I'm dissatissfied, might say dissapointed. $180? For this piece of low quality copy offset mess?

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip it! 16 Sep 2012
By Cam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My favorite part of this book is how the end of the chapter questions will ask you about concepts that were not even discussed. Badly written and confusing and cheap. If your professor uses this book consider switching classes!
