Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is an excellent text which tackles the real issues of accounting analysis and valuation. The conversion to IFRS has been done well. The key strengths are the high level of explanation and the use of real life examples, as well as the fact that the text tackles real problems of forecasting, analysis and valuation in a way which no other text I know does.”

Simon Pallett, University of Newcastle

“All needed modifications have been comprehensively and excellently done. These modifications are appropriate, making the book attractive for European readers.”

Lakshmanan Shivakumar, London Business School

“What makes this book attractive for my course is that it continues where other textbooks stop: it focuses on the link between accounting figures and corporate strategy.”

Ignace de Beelde, Ghent University

“I think that the new edition has succeeded in creating an alternative for PHB for European students. While keeping the original text intact, the authors have managed to give it a European tone.”

Sanjay W. Bissessur, University of Amsterdam Business School

This is a review of the Kindle edition of the textbook rather than the content of the book itself. The Kindle edition does NOT include the cases, even though it's offered as a digital copy of the printed version that DOES include the cases.

Amazon's customer service was very helpful and prompt in issuing a refund for the Kindle copy. So, overall, two stars for the error in offering the Kindle book as equivalent to the printed version, and five stars to Customer Service for their assistance.

This is the one book from my MBA course that I still refer back to 5 years later. The cases from Krishna Palepu are particularly good.

This book does a good job of explaining basic valuation techniques and financial statement analysis in the text. The best part about this book are the cases from Palepu that are very similar if not the same as the Palepu Harvard Business School cases. They apply the material from the chapter very well and you can learn a lot from each case. What's great is that they aren't made up companies, but real ones like UPS, Krispy Kreme, and others that have either had success, failures, or just different situations that you can look at that apply concepts in the book to real life situations about those concepts. Very interesting and if your teacher says to buy this for a course it will aid you well.
