Reviews of How Finance Works 

1. Rating 4/5

I am practically sure this is the primary spontaneous audit I have ever written in my life about anything I’ve at any point purchased. Ever! I feel fortunate to have perused this book. I’ve generally been scared by finance and how hard it is to discover a genuine CFO for my organizations. All things considered, for the not so distant future, because of this book, I have a feeling that I presently am enabled to fill that supernatural job/range of abilities myself. I genuinely accept this $20 book will spare me a huge number of dollars over a mind-blowing remainder. Furthermore, as a result of how intriguing he makes Finance (I kid you not), I don’t know that I wouldn’t rather fill the CFO job myself and contract a CEO.
I wish I would’ve known so much stuff years back. It would have spared me quite a lot more cash by not contracting an inappropriate CFO and losing my first business all the while. I realize this audit appears to be phony due to how wonderful I think this book is, however, I guarantee you, it’s 100% genuine. However, In rundown, this book caused finance to go from scaring to persuasive. If you believe you’re not a numbers individual or that finance isn’t for you, read this book before you abandon it. Your perspective will open up tremendously. I’m getting one of these books for each individual in my authority group. Without it, you’re playing the game with one hand tied behind your back.
However, Highly Recommended!

2. Rating 5/5

This is an incredible and testing book for somebody without a foundation in finance. However, I truly like that it moves toward the theme from the comprehensive view viewpoint, that it is crammed with intuitive areas and open doors for learning and practice by the peruser; and that it depicts the significant essentials of finance as far as the fundamental clashes between positions (ex/stock buyback versus profits versus putting resources into positive NPV ventures, which would it be a good idea for me to do as CEO?)
I prescribe this to anybody needing to comprehend the major money related ideas and language, particularly those without monetary foundations.

Inside this book:

For many, finance is cloaked in mystery and quite intimidating. This unfortunate outcome is no coincidence. Many in finance like to shroud what they do to intimidate outsiders. But if you want to progress in your career, you’ll need to engage deeply in finance—it is the language of business, the lifeblood of the economy, and increasingly a dominant force in capitalism. So neglecting finance and hoping to survive meetings by thoughtfully nodding your head is an increasingly untenable choice.
Fortunately, you can learn the central intuitions of finance without mastering the intricacies of spreadsheet modeling or the pricing of derivatives. This book aims to provide you with the most central intuitions of finance so that you will never find finance intimidating again. Mastering the intuitions won’t make you a financial engineer—there are likely more than enough of those. Instead, internalizing these intuitions will provide the foundation for addressing financial issues with confidence and curiosity for the rest of your life.
The book emerged from my efforts to teach finance to MBA students, law students, executives, and undergraduates with a wide variety of backgrounds. During the last two decades of teaching, I’ve emphasized diagrams, graphs, and real-world examples over equations and Mickey Mouse numerical examples to preserve relevance while also shearing off unneeded complexity. In the process, I’ve found that it’s possible to maintain rigor without being overly precise. I’ll try to do the same in the pages that follow.
