(This book is about corporate finance with focus on how companies invest in real assets and how they raise the money to pay for these investments. It's very important because capital management decisions may determine the shape a business is in 10, 20, or more years ahead. Also, a firm's success or failure depends in part on its ability to find the capital that it needs. Financial decisions are rarely cut and dried, and the financial markets in which companies operate are changing rapidly. Good managers can usually copy with routine problems, but only the best managers can respond to change. To handle new problems, you need more than rules of thumb, you need to understand why companies and financial markets behave as they do. Once you have a consistent framework for making financial decisions, complex problems become more manageable and this book provides that framework.)
