Offering a brief introduction to corporate finance, this text covers core financial management topics and avoids unnecessary mathematics. Emphasis is on the concepts, logic, and intuition underlying financial decision-making. This text utilizes a financial balance sheet framework throughout in order to help students visualize how financial decision-making affects other areas of the firm (e.g. marketing, human resources, operations, etc.). This framework is coupled with a decided emphasis on a dominating theme of valuation. It includes capstone chapters designed to allow students to reflect upon the conceptual schemes they have mastered.

I found the writing style, use of illustrations, logical conceptual building and overall presentation to be very interesting and even enjoyable. Hickman, Hunter, and Byrd have put more meat into the sandwich compared to other competitor books.
I believe student ratings of their textbook will go up if the department or faculty adopt this book.
Overall, this is a first-rate text...The applications orientation of this text is among the strongest I have seen.
Chapter 1 was the best introduction to corporate finance I have ever read.
Foundations of Corporate Finance is extraordinarily well-written..a very good book with emphasis on applications, relevance, clarity, and real-world importance.
