We used this case book in our MBA course for corporate finance. The real cases are exciting. The topics are very broad and ranging from cash budgeting to financial risk management. Most of the cases are supported with good background material like charts and income statements. The book is excellent for class discussions, but not for the ambituous reader who wants to teach himself corporate finance. There are simply no right or wrong answers why there's no solution provided. It's a great book to work with, but deadly boring if you want to read it page by page.

This is definitely the book of classic cases in Finance. Using Harvard case method, it covers a wide range of fundamental issues faced by today's finance executive or CFO. A must for MBA second course in Finance or advanced undergraduate. However, this textbook is lacking in a few pedagogical aspects. Firstly, in every section (key topic), there is no comprehensive chapter of important theories and key concepts (e.g. formulas) for students to brush up before embarking on the cases. Moreover, there are no check figures or guidelines (at the back) on how to tackle the problems. The format of the pages are rather dry and uninviting plus there are so many typo erroes in the financial statements. More importantly in this 1997 edition, the authors have decided to leave out the Carrefour case, which was an excellent example of cash flow management. Lots of important lessons missed out, especially from a multinational which has been very successful in today's global retail hypermarket industry. Our professor had to make photocopies from an earlier edition for our MBA. May be the authors can put back this case in future editions.....

As a student utilizing this text for class, I found it extremely insightful, as well as challenging in content. The book is subdivided in to various topib headings related to corporate finance, everything from debt and equity offerings to derivative risk management. After a chapter introduction outlining and reviewing pertinent academic information, there are several case studies on real companies. The book closes with three case studies which incorporate multiple topics highlighted in the book.
