3.0 out of 5 stars OK with some Very Good aspects
This book sits uncomfortably between the 'everything you need to know quickly' guides and the specialist regulatory and practice guides. It is full of excellent guidance and example, yet not fully cohesive or necessarily easy to find the key issue that you seek.

This review is from: Corporate Governance (Paperback)
This book sits uncomfortably between the 'everything you need to know quickly' guides and the specialist regulatory and practice guides. It is full of excellent guidance and example, yet not fully cohesive or necessarily easy to find the key issue that you seek. At its best, this volume represents 'the professor in discussion with advanced students who are widely reading elsewhere too' - and valuable for that. I am glad to have read it. It provoked thought and some discussion with colleagues - but I found it ultimately not as useful as the blurb might indicate, nor as useful as I had hoped as a resource to have to hand for reference.

3.0 out of 5 stars Practitioner-oriented textbook, 29 Dec 2011

CorpGov (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Corporate Governance (Paperback)
This book focuses on the USA. It has a more thorough and better coverage than Christine Mallin's 'Corporate Governance' and Jill Solomon's 'Corporate Governance and Accountability', but it is aimed mainly at practitioners. The book's main advantage is the extensive list of case studies. Its main disadvantage is the lack of thorough academic grounding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good practical coverage, 29 May 2013

This review is from: Corporate Governance (Paperback)
I bought this book whilst undertaking an MBA module in corporate governance, mainly for the case studies (contained in chapter 7 of the earlier editions). Disappointingly this chapter is now on line (on Wiley's website, Wiley.com), allowing regular updates to the newer case studies, but tying the reader to a PC or a tablet in order to access them (hence 4 stars rather than 5).
Overall however, the book provides excellent coverage of the governance issues, supported by numerous real life business case studies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great depth of feeling for the subject - that works, 16 Jun 2012
This review is from: Corporate Governance (Paperback)
Some subjects lend themselves to a rigid and highly structured approach. Corporate finance is a case in point. Other subjects like corporate governance require a much more qualitative approach to the subject. Thats how this book approaches and its filled with lots of case history from over the years to the present day that illustrate the problems in managing the agency conflict that lies at the heart of this field.
