    "Well written and easy to understand."
    Any additional comments?

    This audible is well written and greatly narrated in a very easy to listening manner, it may essentially be a little to abridged. Inordinate for someone with no knowledge of accounting but not so much if you are looking to enlarge on what you already know.

    "Really clear and concise."
    Any additional comments?

    This is quick, clear, inordinate book. Would recommend for anyone as a reminder or a primer. Certainly just about all of the subjects in any intro to accounting class are shielded in this book and are described in far simpler terms than an audible.

    Listened it in one sitting. Unspoiled synopsis for those who have distress with bigger textbooks. Simple concepts that you can research more thoroughly away, if desired. Accounting is not hard!

    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.

    "Good luck"

    One opinion, do not learn everything by heart, it's worthless. You never learn everything in managerial accounting. Practice the book as a source of your everyday needs. Good luck.
