This book is a distillation of ideas taught in undergraduate-level courses in investments and corporate finance, aimed at the general reader. It saves the reader the effort of enrolling in two college courses to otherwise gain all this information. The author has a PhD in Finance and writes in a succinct 'just the facts' style. In condensing all this information to its bare essentials, he creates pages which must be read slowly to be fully understood. Nevertheless there is no other book on the market that I am aware of which serves this unique purpose. More academics need to write for the general investor. This book makes a valuable contribution.
