5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook used by Stanford and Harvard business schools for their core finance class

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook used by Stanford and Harvard business schools for their core finance class, December 11, 2013

Victor Huang (Stanford, California) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Corporate Finance (3rd Edition) (Pearson Series in Finance) (Hardcover)
An extremely well-written, up-to-date textbook. The authors explain the material step by step, clearly and logically. The presentation is attractive, with excellent use of color, diagrams, and boxes that explain concepts and common mistakes to avoid. The authors have also gone out of their way to keep the text up-to-date and relevant, and inserted many examples of how the material is used in the real world. The authors also conduct interviews with notable financial practitioners to understand how they apply financial thinking in major applications. Special attention is given to addressing the recent global financial crisis and the ongoing sovereign debt crisis. This is an outstanding textbook written by professors at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. It is used for the core finance classes at Stanford GSB and Harvard Business School, and deserves to be the standard text for the subject.

3.0 out of 5 stars Global Edition vs. Hardback, July 1, 2013
I'm wondering if there are any differences between the global edition of the book and the edition sold in the USA (hardback), besides the obvious-- price & hardback vs. paperback. Content all the same? Thanks!
