identical to 10th edition 11 Oct 2013
By ravil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The text in this book is 99% identical to its 10th edition. Buy 10th edition instead. Many errors in exercises of accompanying materials.

prerequisites 6 Oct 2013
By B. Simone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
By reading some negative reviews of this book on "concise" format/edition I would have felt discouraged to get it. At the same time I do understand that some of the readers could have no choice due to requirement of some classes.
I have so far read the first 2 chapters from the Kindle sample and I will shortly buy the full book.
I'd like to talk to the potential readers that are looking at this book not because they are forced to get it but because they are genuinely interested in it. I believe the authors are implying that the reader has knowledge of accounting. On the first or second chapter they mention "balance sheet" and I could follow easily because I did study programming for accounting at high school. Chapter 7 is about risk and it introduces variance and standard deviation: here as well my background should help since I have studied statistics at the university.
I would say that depending on educational background this book will end up being easier or harder to the reader. I'd say that a good background in math could help a lot even without previous knowledge of accounting or statistics. Either way, I repeat, you would need to know a bit of accounting (balance sheets, profit and loss, etc.). This can be achieved with simple searches on the internet: for example wiki on terms such as Financial_accounting and Double-entry_accounting_system.
Finally here some specific comments about the Kindle edition vs a regular paper edition. At first I found reading experience a bit awkward since I was accustomed to regular "entertainment" books with simple/plain layout. The original layout of this book is quite rich with charts, graphs. etc. and eventually I came to realize that overall the transposition from paper to electronic was well done. It could and it will improve with future editions however it is not something for which I would remove one star from the overall rate.
I found my good way to read it on my 7" device but I believe a 10" will offer a better experience.
I think I will go for the regular/full instead of "concise" edition since I understand there should be up updated coverage about risk with government bonds, specifically by reporting the recent example of Greece.

Leaves you scratching your head 24 April 2014
By K. Gentsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This textbook was required for one of my MBA courses in Financial Management. It seems to speak at an intermediate level, assuming that the reader already understands a great deal about finance (which I do not). It does not break down HOW to get from point A to point C or D. In fact, it barely explains how to get from point A to point B. Throughout the text, there are significant areas where the reader is left to figure out on their own how to solve a problem. I conferred with my other classmates to find out if I was missing something. It seems that this text is meant for the more advanced finance student. Good luck!

Very Dry 16 Sep 2013
By Jim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Not a lot of applicable real life cases. Very straightforward material presented in dry fashion. Even the updated edition had very current events, almost no mention of current financial challenges firms face in the post-recession era.
This is one of the better finance texts I've come across 1 Dec 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the better finance texts I've come across. It still is a finance text though, so I can't really say that it's in any way enjoyable.
