Overview

Let an actual CFO introduce you to today's most important financial management topics within the pages of PRACTICAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT, Seventh Edition. Author William R. Lasher uses his experience as a former, successful CFO to give you an insider's look into the issues and challenges facing financial managers every day. From hidden agendas to decision maker's biases and their effect on the analyses of financial proposals, you will see principles in action in this dynamic text. You will examine the latest developments, including a new discussion on IPOs as a broad topic, and the sale of Facebook stock and its fallout in particular. Dr. Lasher keeps the presentation as relevant and practical as it is engaging with a thorough approach that is ideal for today's business students. He has replaced advanced formulas with everyday math in theory sections, complete with numerous worked-out examples and graphical as well as intuitive presentations. With Thomson ONE—Business School Edition exercise, you even gain research experience using the same financial tool that professional brokers and Wall Street analysts trust every day. Develop the first-hand understanding of financial management you need for future success with PRACTICAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT, Seventh Edition.

    Problem, Problems, Problems

    I had a free trial version of this book and it worked fine. However, when I paid to rent the book; I have not been able to open it. Barnes & Noble offered to refund my money. How is that a help when I have assignments due? I will never rent any other books from Barnes & Noble!
