popular for good reason Nov. 26 2010
By Stephen A. Swope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I completed my MBA in 2007 at Ohio State University. The basic course in corporate finance used the 8th edition of this book. My review is based upon that edition plus some of my PhD work at Purdue University.

I appreciated the clarity of the writing. The authors are very transparent about key assumptions, particularly re: the evaluation of long-term investment decisions. This is useful for students at all levels, but it is especially good for beginning students. Beginners do not have to accept the authors' conclusions sheerly upon the basis of their authority; the rationale for preferring Net Present Value (NPV) analysis over alternatives (such as IRR or BCR) is completely demystified.

Based upon my research (in progress as I write this in Fall 2010), there is no unanimity among schools as to which text ought to be used in their MBA programs. About half of the schools from whom I have received a response so far use this textbook. The other half use 1) Berk and Demarzo, 2) Ross, Westerfield, and Jaffee, or 3) Higgins.

While book choices vary among schools, method does not. Every school so far expresses a firm preference for NPV analysis over its alternatives. If you find a book that anchors its analysis in NPV and is clear about its proper use and limitations, that book will serve you well. Brealey, Myers, & Allen do not have the only book in this category, but they have a very good one. Its popularity is warranted.
Textbooks are too expensive to be this bad! Feb. 13 2015
By Maria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is NOT a beginning finance book. All attempts to introduce financial concepts are buried under someone's idea of "casual voice." So deeply buried in fact that maybe the overly-serious and possibly more informative parts of the text were omitted. I'm looking for a different book because I still have to learn the basic concepts. This book was unhelpful - waste of time to read and waste of money.
Best of this class April 25 2013

Format: Hardcover
An excellent book that provides clear explanation supported but useful and east to follow examples. However, this book requires the reader to be familiar with at least basic concepts in finance in order to fully absorb the knowledge it offers. Other than that, it is an terrific finance book ! Highly highly recommended. Another incredible reading on the subject is Corporate Finance by Ivo Welch.

For simple financial concepts to be overloaded with complex and mostly practical examples is a great way to learn it well.
Many books will teach you concepts without real life explanations, leaving readers baffled on how things are applied in the real world.

This book connects the dots.
Overpriced and overcomplicated Sept. 5 2013
By Laurie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Required text for a class. Extremely overcomplicated. I would use investopedia.com to understand the terms and concepts instead. This was by far the most expensive and least useful textbook I used in my MBA program. Other students in the class complained as well.
