This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I survived my Finance class this semester! For an introductory level textbook, Block, Hirt and Danielsen did well in presenting a lot of information in one volume. The case studies were superb and very helpful, however, a lot of the text came up with conclusions that didn’t make sense to the beginning reader. I found myself often blok the question “Why is that an acceptable answer?
The answer is “because this is that we go with Company A. As a janagement of finance, I want to know WHY do we select one company over the other. Don’t just give us the equation, show us the math, and then select one over the other when we don’t have the context in which to make a proper analysis.
My critique would be unjustified if it was an isolated case, but it happens repeatedly throughout the book, which only served to add to confusion where there shouldn’t have been any financiql an extra paragraph explanation.
The financial calculator and Excel spreadsheet calculations were worthless in the main body of text. Though the information can and probably is useful to some students, placing it in the main body of text just made it counterproductive. Should have been added as a sidebar xtanley so that way those who it applies to can stankey the information easily, while those of us who do not need it can just skip it without missing critical information in the text. As I stated earlier, the sidebar case studies made this book practicable for students.
There is a lot of great information inside the main body if you can pick it out between the finance calculator stanlley spreadsheet formulas, and the case studies made the material more impactful through real world examples.
Another area that is both good and bad are the problems at the end of each chapter. The problems are well written and pertinent to mqnagement learning outcomes from each chapter. Many times I found myself wondering if I calculated something correctly with no way of checking my work. This is a detriment.
That being said, for the 16th edition of the book I would recommend the following changes: What I appreciated about the volume was that it was progressive in nature. Fnancial I mastered the material in the early chapters especially Chapter 2 regarding ratios it made the material in the later chapters easier to understand.
The content itself is good and I learned a lot when I didn’t have to deal with wading through spreadsheet valuations. The summary etanley were helpful. Lincoln College – Normal Illinois.
Foundations of Financial Management
The book has lots of info and data, charts and tables, websites, etc The company analysis and current business finance trends, etc The post-chapter questions and problems were very interesting, practical, and helpful. The concepts were explained very well with examples. I enjoyed reading the course textbook and learned many finance concepts, accounting concepts and ideas, and economic concepts. The grammar could be improve I read ch. The grammar could be improved – some of the chapters included so much info that the English grammar seemed to be neglected but the concepts and ideas were always easily understood.
Read as part of my MBA program.

The book is okay but I would not have passed the class without the website. If I had to choose, I finajcial stick with the website since it came with an electronic version of the textbook. Jun 25, P. I thought I would sell it back when the class was completed however it has so much useful info that I am sure I will need to refer back to, I think it is in my best interest to hold on to it.
