Format: Hardcover
This is the best book by far on the theory of finance. The book covers all the important fundamental concepts and develops them into practical models without going overboard and introducing every possible variation on the model. the style is both conversational and mathematical. It is replete with discussions about the material, but it doesnt gloss over the math. I took professor Luenbergers course at Stanford, and it piqued my interest in finance enough to pursue it professionally. (At the time, I was a masters student in electrical engineering.) I purchased several other books in finance. I dont even know where they are now, every time I have a question or need to build a new model, I go straight to Luenberger. This book is so good, I bought a second copy just as a backup, in case I lose my copy and the book goes out of print.

I attended his courses at Stanford and indeed he's an eminence in the subject, and all his wisdom has been printed in this excellent book. This book provides you with the required tools to fully understand the theory and practical methods for valuation. A plus is the introduction of Real Option valuation concept. It's adequate for advanced undergraduates or mainly for graduate studies in preparation for deeper courses.

It is very difficult to find a book on investments with a clear quantitative background that fits the necessity of advanced students. Luenberger's explanations and exercices are the finest I have ever read. His book is a good step for those who want to keep on studying portfolio analysis, CAPM, asset pricing and stochastic process.
