This book includes notes from all of the finance courses I took during my Finance Ph.D. studies: Investments, Event Studies, Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance, Financial Institutions, Asset Pricing, Market Microstructure, and numerous special topics. In my opinion this is the only book available that includes such a comprehensive list of topics.
After leaving my notes dormant for years I decided to assemble them into this book and make them available to you. I believe the core theories and principles of finance are covered quite well in this first edition text. If you would like to supplement these comprehensive finance notes with focused econometrics notes consider my other book, Applied Finance and General Statistical Analysis.
