Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Revolution in Corporate Finance has established itself as a key text for students of corporate finance with wide use on a range of courses. Using seminal articles from the highly regarded Bank of America Journal of Applied Corporate Finance, it gives students real insight into the practical implications of the most recent theoretical advances in the field.

This extensively revised and updated fourth edition contains over two-thirds new material while retaining key original articles from previous editions. The new material highlights important recent developments and adds two new sections devoted to International Finance and International Corporate Governance. It offers, in one volume, coverage of the latest academic thinking, written by leading financial economists in a way that is accessible to students and corporate management. Major contributions cover core topics such as:

  • Market efficiency

  • Real options

  • Capital structure

  • Corporate financing

  • Risk management

  • International finance

  • Corporate governance

and many other key areas. It will continue to be an indispensable and unique teaching and study resource.

Readers looking to expand their understanding beyond the ideas in books like Valuation, Creating Shareholder Value, Quest For Value, etc should have this in the library. The collection provides great brain food for advanced corp fin ideas/debates for both securities analysts and corporations. The downside would be that application of some of the ideas presented would a bit difficult for an analyst (vs a company insider).

Stern and Chew bring together some better than average work into finance. If you have plowed through as many finance texts as I have during undergrad, graduate, and now post-grad work, you know how old this stuff can get. They have managed to bring in good information from a number of sources that didn't put me to sleep and actually taught me a thing or two when I had previously fooled myself into believeing I knew it all. Good book!
