Praise for Real Options Analysis Course
"Dr. Mun's latest book is a logical extension of the theory and application presented in Real Options Analysis. More specifically, the Real Options Analysis Course presents numerous real options examples and provides the reader with step-by-step problem-solving techniques. After having read the book, readers will better understand the underlying theory and the opportunities for applying real option theory in corporate decision-making."
-Chris D. Treharne, President, Gibraltar Business Appraisals, Inc.
"This text provides an excellent follow up to Dr. Mun's first book, Real Options Analysis.

-Charles T. Hardy, PhD, Chief Financial Officer & Director of Business Development, Panorama Research, Inc.
