This book is now in its eighth edition. That alone is an indication of its success in meeting the needs of the marketplace. The eighth edition includes material on several of the new an innovative business practices such as the Dutch Auction for Google's initial public offering, why lenders were willing to lend Amazon $350 million just after they reported a loss of $146 million, Dell's breakthrough in working capital practices, Microsoft's cash position of almost $50 Billion. (Microsoft says they need this much cash for potential acquisitions - like maybe they decide to buy a small country).
This particular edition of the book comes with access to the Educational Version of Standard & Poor's Market Insight on-line data resource so you can work with real data that is as current as can be obtained by anyone.
In most of the financial classes I've attended, I am usually left scratching my head when introduced to new concepts because the text is so dense and the examples provided very rarely explain it enough. This textbook is so well-written that, although much of the material builds upon concepts introduced in earlier chapters, reading the earlier chapters isn't entirely required to understand the subject matter: each chapter stands on its own.
Also, Higgins's style is reminiscent of those fine classic textbooks from the mid-20th century, such as Elements of Style by Strunk & White and The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, interjecting dry, and at times belly-laughingly funny, humor into the text.
This book deserves to be a classic.
Excellent content of important financial concepts, always keeping focus on teaching the implications financial analysis can have on managers, executives and companies.
The references to useful URLs, as well as the real life access to S&P Market Insight web are an additional bonus.

I can't fault Amazon for the book, the material was very dry and didn't do a very good job of describing the material. Read morePublished on October 31, 2013 by Rob Carroll
The product was received well before the actual date the seller specified. Also, the seller was great to talk with and very informative.Published on February 25, 2011 by gjennings
For a required text, it's to-the-point, relevant, and at times pretty funny. Well organized for the non-financial decision-maker type.Published on May 13, 2009 by Bryan Smith
