Summary "Finance in a Nutshell deliberately combines essential theory with real-world application, using short, sharp chapters to help you find what you need and focus your attention. That way you can understand fast and implement right away. And since spreadsheets have become an indispensable tool for the business of finance, this book also shows how to implement these techniques in Excel." "Investors, business executives and finance professionals, including investment bankers, portfolio managers, brokers and security analysts, should all find this book a valuable aid to getting up to speed on something real and relevant to their work, and MBA students will find it a helpful companion to the core concepts of Corporate Finance or investments courses."--book jacket.
