Complete Idiot's Guide™ to Economics,
Economics touches every part of our lives. Our jobs and livelihoods, our purchase and investment decisions, our choice of where and in what to live, even the way we vote—all depend to some extent on economics.

The Essentials of Finance and Accounting for Nonfinancial Managers
This indispensable book demystifies the role that accounting and finance play in a corporation and demonstrates how financial decisions are manifestations of company goals.

Dark Side of Valuation
The book is structured around the valuations of five technology firms—Motorola, Cisco, Amazon.com, Ariba, and Rediff.com. The first three are household names but represent three different points in the technology spectrum. Motorola is an old technology firm with substantial investments in existing assets. It is also a firm that has fallen on hard times in the last few years, largely as a consequence of poor investments and strategic choices. Cisco is one of the great success stories of the 1990s, but a great deal of the market value of the firm reflects expectations about the future.
Investment Fables: Exposing the Myths of 'Can't Miss' Investment Strategies
Investing is full of stories that sound good when they are told but don't hold up under close scrutiny. Consider a few: Buy stock in good companies and the returns will surely follow. Buy after bad news. Buy after good news. Stocks always win in the long term. Follow the insiders. Buy stocks with big dividends. Buy stocks that have gone down the most. Go with stocks that have gone up the most. What makes these stories alluring is that there is a kernel of truth to each one of these stories but none of them is foolproof. You will examine these and other investment sales pitches in this book, consider the potential downside with each, and study how you might be able to modify each one to reduce downside risk.
