Brealey/Myers’ Principles of Corporate Finance is the worldwide leading text that describes the theory and practice of corporate finance. Throughout the book the authors show how managers use financial theory to solve practical problems and as a way of learning how to respond to change by showing not just how but why companies and management act as they do. The text is comprehensive, authoritative, and modern and yet the material is presented at a common sense level. The discussions and illustrations are unique due to the depth of detail blended with a distinct sense of humor for which the book is well known and highly regarded. This text is a valued reference for thousands of practicing financial managers.
This book is amazing. Finance is kind of an obtuse subject. And several books make it a point to talk mumbo jumbo and way over complicate the material. This is not that kind of book. It is very well laid out and simply presents the subject in common sense relatable concepts and then builds on that. I have used the concepts and they are very well received by managers to justify capital expenditures. Phenomenal finance book.
