Great book for beginners.

Any additional comments?

Great book. It is only 2 and half hours but, boy does it give a lot of information. I have found this book to be a great means in my training of accounting. It's easy to understand and lots of fun to read. The end of the book also has some online resources and I have tried one the author's blog.

Good book like an accounting class book.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend to everyone taking accounting classes these days. This abridges the substantial for easier preoccupation but can be too vague. This is a great supplement and can be an impartial if you just want rudimentary information to help you speak to CPA's. It will not do the trick if you are looking to learn how to do accounting on your own.

Four stars in all because,

Any additional comments?

The book is good and well described the topic like a teacher. But in my view its a bit lengthy as a junky professor in college or university stretches its lecture. It can be sum up in maximum two hours but its touching four hours. No time to listen it again and again.

This audible is my assistant now.

Any additional comments?

This book is eccentric, if used in the proper framework. This book assisted me put positive descriptions or perceptions of accounting finance into viewpoint, that were primarily problematic to understand in a logical manner.

Fantastic book... But...

So, threw quarters of the way through, the narrator uses is an expletive, along the lines of "Have I f***ed up?" and continues on. I'm not sure that was meant to be in the final edit.

Anyway, fantastic book overall, full of relevant and useful information, some or it irrelevant depending upon company formation however, if you are studying an accounting or finance degree I'd highly recommend.

As described

Even though I totally hate accounting, this book was pretty great. The writers do an excellent job giving examples and also have indirect stories of groups that link to what you're learning.
Works perfectly with my coursework.

I am very happy with this purchase

The best part was all the practice likely at the end of the book. If you require any accounting book from well-known writers that is well written, I'd suggest this book for you. Honestly, a lot of the concepts are essential in this book and so it will probably help you further.

Acceptable

Although this Audiobook is great! Very well-written and simple to follow. Accounting can be a very bland subject but this book puts it into terms that the college student can understand. Highly recommend.

This is a good choice

It is wonderful! Seeing as I am taking this class for college it is more difficult than Accounting back in high school. Definitely, do the practice problems.if you're looking for the presentation to the standard college financial accounting class, this is a good choice. Arrived quickly and again, the phenomenal price for this level of instruction and organization.
