Real Options in Theory and Practice by Graeme Guthrie was published by
Oxford University Press in June 2009. The book, part of the Financial
Management Association Survey and Synthesis Series, aims to be a valuable
asset to practitioners who want to develop their analytical techniques and
also graduate students who will eventually become practitioners. It presents
the building blocks needed to carry out successful real options analysis and
shows how these can be assembled in a way that is appropriate to a wide
variety of problems in business and economics.
