    The first few chapters contained 90% of the value of this one.The author describes the way businesses (and seems to me, anyone running an organization, even a government) can extend analytical tools from the financial world to the world at large.Specifically, using Black-Scholes analysis can be used to estimate the total value of projects. Total value takes into account the current economic value (such as the discounted cash flows of the operation) and the value of all real options, such as merger agreements, leveraged buyouts, innovations, etc.Sadly, once he lays out his initial thoughts, the rest of the book seems like padding. Long discussions on the importance of risk, of innovation, and of returns to scale... They were informative, in the same way as catching up with a long lost family member or friend is information, but not as thought provoking.Still, worth the purchase price.
