Review:

'If you want to calculate present values, turn on a computer. If you want to understand present values, and also know how to know when a calculated value is likely to disappoint, read this book.' Stewart C. Myers, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

'Recent problems in the financial sector, arising in part from the pursuit of growth without underlying value, should remind us of the importance of understanding the driving forces of value creation. Simon Woolley's Sources of Value approach throws light on this question in a deep yet practical way. The author is a thoughtful and experienced practitioner and his book draws on this to offer insights into the key features of value creating strategies. As well as providing a readily assimilable yet thorough grounding for beginners, Sources of Value contains nuggets which will be appreciated by the most seasoned of practitioners.' John Buchanan, Board member of AstraZeneca, BHPBilliton, Smith & Nephew, and Vodaphone, formally Group CFO, BP

'I firmly believe that a sound grasp of the theoretical underpinnings improves decision making greatly. Simon Woolley's book offers real help here. It brings financial theory to life in a practical way and offers some deep and new insights into the topic of shareholder value creation.' Chris Gibson-Smith, Chairman, London Stock Exchange

Book Description:

An experienced senior practitioner shares the secrets of both the science and the art of financial decision making. The quality of financial decision making explains why some companies succeed whilst others fail. Sources of Value provides an original toolkit that emphasises both technical skills and strategic awareness.
