This is a good introduction into the subject matter. I need to brush up on my knowledge for an upcoming venture and this book allows me to be on speaking terms with my corporate finance partners quickly. It's a pity the publisher won't sell me the answers to the questions in the back. Then again publishers aren't known for their marketing and selling skills.

Good, applicable information that is approachable and applicable to anything you are working on regarding corporate finance. It is a textbook, so it is quite long and a bit dry, but the information in it is well researched and valuable.

Finance is a pretty dry subject but this book manages to be pretty darn engaging for a complicated subject. Everything is clearly explained and the book flows very well.

Fantastic book on finance. It has everything you need, including a dose of reality and scepticism about some of the theories it explains.

I learned that finance is not a good topic to discuss from 1-4 on Sat. in the summer.
