by Timothy Gallagher
Revised in August, 2009. 640 pages. ISBN 1-930-78978-5
by Timothy J. Gallagher Ph.D. (Colorado State University). Key characteristics are: coverage of recent financial crises/recession (its causes and implications for future decisions in financial management), coverage of systematic risk and "too big to fail" concepts; focus on value - what creates it, what destroys it, how value is measured, and how value and risk are related; and Gallagher's strong "real-world connection." Complete ancillary package includes instructor's manual, solutions manual, downloadable spreadsheets, and a test bank on CD.
