Позже (в 2008) изданная под названием 'Corporate Finance: An Introduction', эта книга была доступна на авторском сайте для комментариев и предварительного знакомства с материалом (Preview).Про книгу
A First direction in Finance является первым такого рода пособием, с простым и кратким подходом к изложению основ финансового курса в доступных терминах. В нем использованы простые числовые примеры для пояснения всех основных финансовых концепций (и формул).
Текст может быть использован в качестве полного курса, или как дополнение к традиционным учебникам по финансам.
Первые отзывы студентов были очень положительны в обоих случаях.
Несмотря на то, что это пособие подходит для самообучения, первоначальная цель его разработки была дополнить обучение в классах начального высшего образования и аспирантуры. Автор рассчитывал втиснуть материал в размер "напряженного" семестра или более размеренных 2-х семестров. Содержание:

If you put too high a value on your project, you might take a project that you could buy cheaper elsewhere. Value is easier relative. Note how value is defined in relative terms. This is because it is easier to determine whether your project is better, worse, or similar to its best alternatives than it is to put an absolute value on your project. The closer the alternatives, the easier it is to put a value on your project.

13) . Now, what constant two one-year interest rates (r ) would give you a two-year rate of return of r0,2 = 50%? 25%. Instead, you need to solve (1 + r ) · (1 + r ) = (1 + r )2 = 1 + 50% . 47% 1 + r0,t − 1 = r Turn around the formula to compute individual holding rates. 15) . 47%) ≈ (1+50%). 8%, what is the one-month interest rate? 16) 12 r = but you already knew this. Interestingly, compounding works even over fractional time periods. 4695% . 5 )2 = (1 + r0,1 ) . 18) You can determine fractional interest rate via compounding, too.
