Fantastic book April 23, 2011

This textbook is very useful for BA students and finance professionals. It demystifies and makes very clear what is the so-called "value creation" and how to make it happen. I highly recommend this textbook for anyone looking to advance their valuation skill set and general corporate finance knowledge. I rate the seller 5 stars and I plan to buy from ecampus again in the future.
