I have a mathematics background along with an undergrad degree in business, so you understand I am not financially illiterate. This is the WORST financial text I've ever seen. The examples are often unclear, there is no in-depth explanation of key concepts. As other reviewers have noted, I learned more from YouTube and the rest of the internet. The examples that ARE provided are not step-by-step, detailed, or explanatory. They are straightforward, you figure out where the numbers came from, so the "examples" are more accurately described as additional problems with answer provided. You must reverse engineer and discover for yourself from where data was gleaned. It is literally the least understandable and followable text I've ever had (3 schools, Bachelor, 2 Masters)! These outdated editions exist and still are used apparently because nothing significant is changed in new editions except the price (according to other reviews and research). I would avoid this text like the plague and do the same for a course requiring it, if possible.
As other reviewers have noted, the book is a jumble. I can't find my way through chapters logically, let alone see the logical flow of the book as a whole. It claims to have electronic links to things like spreadsheets and does not. All the links are dead. The publisher's website promises tons of content, and there's virtually nothing, and what is there is just fluff, not of any real use.

And finally, the book is not updated in any meaningful way since the 8th edition (I compared it in the library). Literally all they did was tweak the number in the problem section so you don't get the same answers. Every word of the text is verbatim, except for some very minor changes (they refer to different baseball players' salaries, or sales of expensive art auction items). So they published a "new" edition not cause there's new information, or to update the content in keeping with the 2008-present recession, or anything else of academic merit. The changes are basically cosmetic, in order to sell more books. Putting out a new edition was not just unnecessary, it was evil.

As for the Kindle execution...first, no page numbers. All books of this sort need literal page numbers, so that kindle users can follow along with the rest of the class. then, they only let you use it on two devices. One of the beauties of Kindle books is that you can bounce from device to device; your phone, your iPad, your laptop, your desktop and home and work, your Kindle, the new Kindle you had to buy because the old one got stolen, the new Kindle you bought because the newer models just came get my drift. NOT with this book! You're limited to two devices. TWO! Utterly ridiculous.

In sum, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. If you have to, plead to get a used copy of the 8th edition, you'll learn every bit as much. What might be missing can be found on the web. Teachers...if you must assign it to students, at least have the courtesy to let students us an older edition, since the 8th is exactly the same book.
Pray, pray, pray that your professor doesn't select this book. My main issue is that each chapter has a series of problems to test you on the concepts found in that chapter. However, the book only provides you with a few answers to these problems. For example, in my current chapter, there are 38 end of chapter problems. Answers to only 6 of them are provided in the answer key. Spend 40 minutes working out the answer to problem 15? Great, you have NO idea whether you got it right because it's not one of the 6 answers provided. I have spent a lot of time dealing with McGraw-Hill on whether a solutions key actually exists and even they're not sure.

Also, be forewarned if your professor is using Connect for this textbook because it will be a waste of your money to buy it used or rent as you'll need to purchase a seperate access key to Connect and you get the text in e form with the Connect key. Don't pay for it twice like I had to.
Not my kinda textbook. In talking to my instructor, it seems that this book is the gold standard for intro finance texts, and if that's the case, it's too bad. I didn't feel I learned much from it. Almost zero worked problems within the chapters, yet they toss you into the deep end at the end of the chapter with the problem sets.
Personally, I learn a lot by studying and working through examples and seeing worked-problem solutions. They provide some example problems
here and there but they're usually on the order of "you should check our answers for practice." Well, what if your answers are wrong?! I should add, the supplemental materials of the text are not very helpful (powerpoint slides/lecture outlines.) Just read the text, work whatever assigned problems your instructor gives you, and hope for the best on the tests. Thankfully our professor just gave multiple choice open-book tests so everyone got an A or B on every test.

It is a pretty basic text. The authors explain things ok usually, but their writing style is borderline archaic and they often take the long route in explaining important concepts. Their discussion of bond pricing and TVM (time value of money) needs improvement. So does their discussion of present value of dividends, in which they take a very loopy numerical approach that is far too hard to understand - I got most of the test questions wrong on this topic. They also refer to Sarbanes-Oxley as "Sarbox" - nobody else calls it anything except SOX. I took Intermediate Accounting before I took Finance, and we used the Kieso, et al. textbook, which was pretty darned difficult but better than this text as far as explanations of TVM and other topics.

I am alarmed to see that a new copy of this book sold for over $200. It has over 20 chapters but they are all short and the information within this book is definitely not worth such a high pricetag. Actually, I rented this book for the course because the cost was far more than I was willing to pay.
