Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The imperatives of modern business mean that, sooner or later, every executive will have to get to grips with finance. Its terms, its tools, its techniques.


Corporate finance touches every aspect of your business: from deciding which capital expenditure projects are worthy of backing for tomorrow, to the immediate and daily challenge of managing business units for shareholder value. Finance is the framework for corporate decisions and the language of corporate decision-makers.  Fluency in finance will serve you and your business well.


The Handbook of Corporate Finance is the authoritative, comprehensive and crystal-clear companion to business finance.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jason Quintana on March 16, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding introductory text in corporate finance for a non business school audience. Prof. Arnold writes this for the experienced manager who has a general understanding of basic accounting, but does not have any background in academic finance. It is also a very good text for those entering an MBA program, and are nervous about the introductory finance course. It is written in a practical manner so that concepts like net present value, internal rate of return and "value creation" are explained with clear English, and math (while present) is kept to a minimum.

A small minority of the content is specific to the United Kingdom. Those in the United States (like myself) should still find this information useful, but specific details about bank financing in Britain, and mergers and acquisitions in "The City" are clearly U.K. specific.

This is an excellent book for those who are looking to teach themselves corporate finance. Because of its down to earth non-textbook style approach a focused read of this book will provide the reader with an equivalent conceptual understanding similar to those who have taken an introductory course in finance at a business school. You won't know all of the math, but you will understand the conceptual content just as well, and possibly better.
