Packed with great information

Great book. Very simple explanations, but the book contains enough detail to increase your knowledge level about the subject. Great for small business owners who have no clue about the books. It is also good as a refresher for seasoned businessmen and women.

Very detailed book.

Even though business owners may not be accountants, they must become knowledgeable in accounting to be successful. Small business owners need to get a grasp of their companies books and not just their checkbooks.

very clear, and its quality is quite good

I had used this book before and it was very helpful. But this time it wasn't the book I needed. But it really does break the information down for you.The exercises are extremely helpful.Highly recommend getting the corresponding CD as well.

Any books covering a heavy topic like accounting must be entertaining, informative and layed out properly so that the reader can follow along without too many problems. This book does all that and more, by providing real-life examples and lots of information regarding the application of accounting.
