From the Inside Flap:

If you are a manager, a regulator, or an investor in today's financial world, you must know how to make financial decisions and account for risk in order to make sound financial decisions and effectively serve investors, creditors, and tax authorities.

Mastering Corporate Finance Essentials is directed at those who make corporate investment decisions as well as those affected by such decisions. It explains traditional ways that business opportunities are evaluated. The text also introduces new methods borrowed from the derivatives securities markets to account for risk and to structure business decisions to avoid some risks and take advantage of opportunities.

Each chapter builds on material learned in previous chapters. Chapter One is designed to allow you to quickly learn present value techniques, while Chapter Two reviews the statistics used in corporate finance. Chapter Three summarizes several important theories that provide a basis for assessing risk and determining what rate to use in valuing cash flows with the tools presented in Chapter One. In Chapter Four, the author synthesizes material from each earlier chapter to show how to value more complex projects and make related investment decisions. Chapter Five introduces additional tools to evaluate risk and handle the uncertainty of forecasted cash flows. Finally, Chapter 6 extends traditional financial tools to value risk and opportunities with real option analysis.

Throughout the book, difficult topics are explained in clear and simple language. Numerous examples assist you in understanding the material by demonstrating how to perform each analysis. The text also offers advice on how to build financial models within Excel. And although the book is intended to cover just the essentials, numerous stand-alone insets dig into deeper issues and may present more quantitative topics. Whatever your current level of expertise, Mastering Corporate Finance Essentials is an ideal reference to round out your understanding of business financial results.
