The first to answer the need for a briefer finance text, this text consists of eighteen chapters covering the core topics of finance. Nine fundamental axioms of finance are introduced in the first chapter and revisited throughout the text to present an integrated view of finance and aid in problem solving. International finance, ethics, and practical applications are integrated, in-text problems correspond to Disclosure software, and the use of the financial calculator is incorporated.
