“This is an excellent text which tackles the real issues of accounting analysis and valuation. The conversion to IFRS has been done well. The key strengths are the high level of explanation and the use of real life examples, as well as the fact that the text tackles real problems of forecasting, analysis and valuation in a way which no other text I know does.”
Simon Pallett, University of Newcastle
“All needed modifications have been comprehensively and excellently done. These modifications are appropriate, making the book attractive for European readers.”
Lakshmanan Shivakumar, London Business School
“What makes this book attractive for my course is that it continues where other textbooks stop: it focuses on the link between accounting figures and corporate strategy.”
Ignace de Beelde, Ghent University
“I think that the new edition has succeeded in creating an alternative for PHB for European students. While keeping the original text intact, the authors have managed to give it a European tone.”
