This audiobook is intended for people who want to know something about the fundamentals of financial accounting without becoming an accountant. Many people are in this position: small business owners, employers, employees, stockholders, investors, and many, many more. Most of these folks do not need a deep understanding of accounting; they just need to learn what accounting is and how they should be using it. Just as important, they need to understand what accountants are talking about in their reports. They must learn the vocabulary and the most important terms. If you are one of those, you have found the right book for you.

We will examine this subject in some detail, discussing accounting fundamentals, the various areas where accounting professionals work, and the information they produce. We will also examine the measures and ratios that accountants use to analyze an organization's performance and the important relationship between time and money. The fact that information is the product of accounting will remain foremost in this book.

Here are just some of the topics that are discussed within this audiobook:

  • Accounting is Different From Bookkeeping

    Indeed, it is very well written book. Concise with admirable examples. The author apparently has an aptitude for illumination complex perceptions with a minimal use of words.

    Very easy to listen. It is certainly great for beginners. Audio chapters are small and to the fact. It is simple and interesting. The author was better and super focused and committed.

    As somebody who had not ever taken an accounting class, I was confronted with an accounting-related employment test! I passed the test and am now in the second round of interviews for the job.

    This book is free of waffle and adopts no past knowledge of accounting. I have not ever seen another discussion on accounting that covers this much material this briefly yet thoroughly.

    This is an exceptional means if you want to revive your knowledge or need an easy way of sympathetic accounting thoughts before you start the main accounting course. He breaks it down in very easy, relevant verbal and I listen it in a little over an hour!

    "Its one of the great book."
    Any additional comments?

    Very simple descriptions, but the book holds enough detail to upsurge your knowledge level about the issue.
    Seems great for small business holders who have no hint about the books. It is also decent as a refresher for experienced businessmen and women.

    "Detailed Enough "

    This book covers all the way from startup to tax season. It isn't overly detailed but covers most everything you need to know to make sure you are doing appropriate accounting for your business.

    "Good Explanations "

    This book is being explained in a helpful voice with good direction and background for each area covered. This is not by any means a direct step by step because every business has different needs and accounting but it covers the basics for many different aspects so you can get a good start and-and know when to adjust if necessary.

    "This Author is good "

    This book can teach you some basic terms and concepts, but if you don't have a good background in bookkeeping you may want to look further for a detailed "how to" book. It really is a simple, straightforward easy to understand the book.

    "Good One "

    I think this is a good book for newer businesses. It helps understand the different aspects of accounting. The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is the fact that the layout is kinda weird sometimes, and sometimes I feel like it is more advanced than beginners. But I guess everyone is on different levels in their understandings of accounting terms.

    "Worth Listening "

    This book includes so many tips to make accounting easy and includes definitions of common accounting terms, which was a great to help to me as an accounting newbie. I used the tips and tricks I learned to help my uncle with accounting for his self-owned construction company, and we both are thrilled.

    "Incredibly Helpful "

    I found this book incredibly helpful! I Learned so many things that I hadn’t even thought of. A must-read for anyone starting out with their own small business. It was a decent to listen too. It was very easy to follow along with and written in a simple and easy to read format. I was able to get through it relatively quickly. A topic like this could very easily be boring and difficult to follow, but this book keeps it upbeat and light. For someone who has never had anything to do with accounting.

    "Good For Your Business "

    It is important to determine how to set up for any kind of business. This is not something I am good at, and it explains things at a basic level. If you are looking for a book to start out with basic accounting, this is your book. It goes through terms and abbreviations, what they stand for and mean. It gives you examples, which helps to clarify any mistaken ideas.

    This book is perfect and proposes tips on running a business and all the financials you may deal with. Not only does it touch on accounting but also helps with payroll, ordering office supplies, keeping business expenses separate from personal, payroll for employees, shipping and receiving and so much more.
