Quotations:

“The book provides the reader with information about the current “hot-topics” in finance and has a clear emphasis on the basic principles of financial management without repetition. Furthermore, as simple language is used, the book can be easily understood by students that are not native speakers of English.”

   --Axel-Adam Muller, Lancaster

“..a useful text either as preparation for a second year course, or as a text for a first

   year financial management course that provides a “first sweep” of the major

   financial management topics. Not many texts cover this ground well.”

   -- Brian Wright,  Exeter

“This is the best book I have found so far”

   --Jean Bellemans, Free University of Brussels
