"The book's clarity and comprehensive coverage make it one of the best practitioners' guides to valuation." —Financial Times
In the global economy of the 1990s, investors move their money quickly and easily around the world in search of the greatest return. As such it's essential for today's business graduates to understand the importance of measuring, managing, and maximizing shareholder value. Valuation illustrates how to take advantage of the American tradition of maximizing shareholder value, demonstrates how value-based management contributes to improved strategic thinking, and shows how managers at any level can create value for their companies.
