9780273675402: Finance in a Nutshell: A no-nonsense companion to the tools and techniques of finance

No other book is a comprehensive toolkit of financial issues, instructive, and so easy to read, all at the same time – this is an easy-to-read guide to the hard-to-understand stuff of business finance.

  •  The author regularly gives talks, seminars, and courses for executives and is very aware of their lack of understanding (or their inability to remember) simple but key financial concepts and tools. He is continually asked to recommend a simple book that helps them to refresh key financial concepts and tools. 
  • Self-contained: Other than some elementary algebra, no other previous knowledge will be necessary to understand the concepts discussed.
  • Comprehensive: It will contain most or all topics, concepts, and tools that executives can easily forget, find hard to understand, and/or would like to know more about.
  • Simple and easy to read: Many well-educated executives have all but forgotten their finance and are regularly put off by books that are far more academic than they need. This book will be written in a simple and conversational style.
  • Concise with short chapters throughout: This is critical as many executives are put off by long books or never ending chapters.
  • Essential elementary theory and many real-world examples. All concepts and tools will be illustrated with catchy and factual examples.
  • Excel: Spreadsheets have become an inseparable part of working in Finance and this book will show readers how to use Excel to simplify their work.
  • Test Yourself: problems with worked numerical solutions throughout.

“Javier Estrada delivers the essential concepts and tools of modern finance clearly and concisely.  Estrada avoids abstract symbolism and jargon, and instead relies on insightful, practical examples, making this the perfect book for practitioners who seek an efficient and engaging learning experience.   My advice: buy this book and keep it close at hand!”

Mark Kritzman, President & CEO, Windham Capital Management, LLC

 

“With Finance in a Nutshell, Javier Estrada has succeeded in several difficult tasks: to make an investment and corporate finance guide concise and useful; conceptually comprehensive and correct, but also written in a readable and engaging style.  Academics, as well as practitioners, will want to refer to this book and recommend it to others.

Edward I. Altman, Max L. Heine Professor of Finance, NYU Stern School of Business

 

“Professor Estrada has written a summary of basic financial topics that should appeal to all levels of students and practitioners.  It is concise and readable, but still manages to address the key issues in finance in a manner that is both useful and insightful.  As a former academic and current practitioner of finance, I will use this book and recommend it to my colleagues.”

 Jack D. Glen,Lead Portfolio Officer, Corporate Portfolio Management Department, International Finance Corporation (IFC)

 

 

"This is a valuable companion for the practising manager and student.  In one brief volume we have a succinct presentation of the important tools and concepts of modern finance.  The discussion is direct and practical.  Estrada is to be commended for translating deep economic ideas into terms that are immediately usable, compelling, and valuable."
Robert F. Bruner, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, University of Virginia

 

"In exceptionally clear and concise language, Javier Estrada explains the concepts of modern finance. Each chapter is up-to-date, well-presented and contains useful problem sets. I recommend this book to practitioners and students alike."

George Hoguet, CFA, FRM Global Investment Strategist, State Street Global Advisors

 

“This is a compact handbook of the key concepts that we teach in finance. You can dip into any chapter for a quick briefing or a fast refresher. This is corporate finance served in bite-sized and digestible portions.”
