Three comprehensive manuscripts in one audiobook. This audiobook is intended for people who want to know something about the fundamentals of bookkeeping and accounting without necessarily becoming a certified bookkeeper or accountant. Many people are in this position; small business owners, employers, employees, business owners, stockholders, investors, and many, many more. Most of these folks do not need a deep understanding of bookkeeping or accounting; they just need to learn what it is and how they should be using it.

I wanted to learn more about bookkeeping, despite having a bookkeeper in order to better understand the financial information in my business.

I'm based in the UK and some of the information was tailored to US markets and businesses. Absolutely fine, but a UK version would be great.

It's very thorough and covers a lot, while also repeating core points to help the reader.

Small note to the audiobook company too, 11:18 into chapter 49, the reader makes a mistake and swears. Not a massive deal but editing should have caught it and I had kids in the car.

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!
