Overview

The tenth edition builds on the success of past editions to provide an up-to-date survey of the entire finance discipline. It provides a valuable overview of the major financial concepts of the disciplines as well as a solid foundation upon which future courses in finance can build. Whereas most survey-style introductory texts still tend to emphasize corporate finance, this book's key strengths are balanced coverage between three major fields of finance - institutions, investments, financial management - and an integrated perspective on the interrelationships among them. As an introductory survey, the book is written with a "user-friendly" focus conveys basic knowledge, concepts and terms - leaving the finer points, discussions of theory and complicated topics, for more advanced course work.
