Aswath Damodaran is nationally recognized for his teaching approach, using theory and the models that flow from it to understand, analyze and solve problems. He treats corporate finance as a living discipline by making it much more applied than other textbooks. Throughout the text, real companies and real data are used in examples and exercises.

I'm in awe over just how bad this book is. This is BY FAR the worst text book I've ever had to work with. The whole reason I'm online right now is because I'm trying to look up an explanation for one of the examples in the book that is impossible to follow. The problem with this book is that it doesn't give you the steps to duplicate its answers. If it would just show me how to do it, I can solve it. If you are a professor considering this book for your course, PLEASE DON"T.
