Many introductory Corporate Finance textbooks tout their engaging, real-world examples, but they often fail to hold students' interest. A Novel Introduction to Corporate Finance offers a unique, innovative, and refreshing contrast. Structured as a work of literary fiction, the book successfully uses a compelling narrative to tell the “story” of corporate finance.

Would you try another book from Jonathan Manley Godbey and Jason Mehl and/or David Baker?

Absolutely, just not in an audio book format.

How could the performance have been better?

The performer could have had true variation between the characters' voices. He used two voices throughout, which can be generalized as follows:

1. Male character
2. Any female character regardless of age, or any male character age 25 or younger.

It actually made it fairly difficult to keep track of the characters.

Any additional comments?

The audiobook is useless without any sort of visual companion for the charts, formulas, and and "homework" sections. Instead, the performer reads all of these sections, and if you're at the level for which this publication was intended and exclusively relying on the audiobook, I can't imagine actually grasping the topics being illustrated.
