Additional Product Information:
Foundations of Financial Management has built a loyal following due to its strong real-world emphasis, clear writing style, and step-by-step explanations that simplify difficult concepts. As the field of finance has become much more analytical, the text focuses on the "nuts and bolts" of finance with a clear and thorough treatment of concepts and applications. The authors emphasize decision-oriented approaches rather than the old, descriptive approach. They have also stayed with their basic mission of making sure students can follow their discussions throughout the text. Block, Hirt, and Danielsen have always been devoted to producing a high-quality text by writing the entire book and all the problems themselves. The authors know what works and what doesn't work for students, and they have consistently maintained a product that is responsive to the demands of the marketplace.
