Editorial Reviews

Very comprehensive and informative. The book covers all of the topics that I normally teach my undergraduate students. In my opinion, this would be a useful tool for a classroom setting. Additionally, the book will assist someone who is considering starting an investment/relations company, or a creative business owner to dig deeper into the world of financial management.

This book fills an important void for managers responsible for corporations and non-profits. It begins by opening access to finance to people with no experience in finance and moves steadily on to present well-developed business tools for decision making in complex organizations with significant revenues and budgets. I highly recommend this book.

- Drew Hession-Kunz, Senior Lecturer, Finance Department, Boston College


I think the book would be a good primer or assigned text for those enrolled in a college or AP Finance course, as it introduces financial concepts in basic terms. The illustrations and flow charts are a plus, as they will help students navigate the book and visualize applications of the lessons therein.

- Carl Lew, School Librarian, The Park School


In your self-learning series, I am using Business Strategy and Financial Management as supplemental textbooks next semester.

- Jared Reynolds, Associate Dean, Kelley College of Business


The book is well structured and covers the core financial concepts that are essential for any business student to know. The concepts are explained in an easy-to-understand manner, and the examples and content is translated well into end-of-chapter practice problems. I would definitely recommend this book to both finance and non-finance majors.
