|Investment Valuation (2nd Edition)||This is the book that is most suited for a classroom text book. It has almost all of the material of the class (barring the more recent updates) and has problems at the end of every chapter. It follows the standard script of valuation, looking at different valuation models with twists.|
|Damodaran on Valuation (2nd edition)||This book provides a quicker review of the basic valuation but the second half of the book is built around dealing with what I call the loose ends of valuation – control, synergy, intangible assets etc. It has no problem sets and is really meant for practitioners who deal with the loose ends on a constant basis.|
|Dark Side of Valuation (2nd edition)||This book covers companies that are difficult to value – young companies, money losing companies, financial service companies, emerging market companies. While it covers the basics of valuation, it is meant more for those who get the basics but want to explore the far corners.|
|The Little Book of Valuation||
If you truly, truly hate to read and are budget constrained, think of this as the Cliff notes version of my longer books.
