this seems to be another great success by the dummies series
I have not read the book but I am familiar with the series. To me it seems to be a very good book. My advice: do not listen to those who give this book a low rating
not so exciting
This book is quite disappointing, and I (someone with no accounting background) find it boring and too easy--the manual for an accounting software seems more exciting than this. I feel there is little about accounting in this book; rather, I find a huge section praising what accountants do. I think if numbers give you a headache and you abhor math, you may consider laboring through this book. Otherwise, try something else.
Not for you if your looking for a bookkeeping treatise.
This book is great (I mean great) if you need to understand what is profit, whats in a balance sheet, how to understand it, whats in an income statement. What are assets, etc, etc. This book will open your eyes. Like others have said its not about double entry bookkeeping, or how to prepare your balance sheet. Find that elsewhere. This book addresses what the numbers mean and how to follow them to come to conclusions and how to use that information.
Let me put it this way. If you have a small business, or are put into a position where you need to manage money for a business, or need to buy a business. This book will help you if your not accountant savy.
Its a great book, and is very well written. Another five star success for the dummies series.
