"Professor Gatti offers the reader an original viewpoint combining rigorous theory with constant reference to market best practices." -- Roberto Albisetti, IFC World Bank Group and University of Genoa

"Gatti's book provides comprehensive and coherent coverage of project finance, including  transaction structures, the institutional environment, and  financial analysis.  Its presentation of practical examples and cases makes it a great teaching tool."  -- Raymond Hill, Emory University

"A good read as well as an excellent reference book, Project Finance in Theory and Practice is very valuable as it is successfully pitched to be useful to readers of all levels of education and experience and explains the roles and objectives of the different parties very clearly. The book can be used both for training and as a guide to best practices." -- Alexander S. Moczarski, President and Chief Executive Officer - Guy Carpenter - Marsh & McLennan Group

 Project finance is a long-established technique for non recourse financing which is extremely relevant today, with more and more infrastructure and other large projects being developed. Professor Gatti and the other contributors use practical concepts and very relevant case studies to clearly explain Project Financing to its readers. It is a must read and a reference book for professionals and practitioners.  -- Jean Pierre Mustier, UniCredit Deputy General Manager and Head of CIB Division
