LAP Lambert Academic Publishing The motivation for this book is to bring closer to readers, especially members of the academia, empirical research literature evidence that link different aspects of corporate governance to firm performance especially the much touted subject of independent directors. Great deals of original thought by the author are embodied in the book. However, the book''s major contribution is that it brings together, in an ordered manner for the consumption of due participants to it, knowledge on corporate governance and firm performance which are scattered in various sources that would have been almost impossible for busy people, or people not deliberately committed to a research of the magnitude of a book, to access within a short time frame. The book is laid out in thirteen chapters, with each chapter discussing issues of corporate governance related to firm performance.
