Summary

Since its release in 2006, Financial Intelligence has become a favorite among managers who need a guided tour through the numbers, helping them to understand not only what the numbers really mean but also why they matter. This new, completely updated edition brings the numbers up to date and continues to teach the basics of finance to managers who need to use financial data to drive their business. It also addresses issues that have become even more important in recent years, including questions around the financial crisis and those around broader financial and accounting literacy.

Accessible, jargon-free, and filled with entertaining stories of real companies, Financial Intelligence gives nonfinancial managers the confidence to understand the nuance beyond the numbers to help bring everyday work to a new level.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great... just hang in there

Essential for management & leaders to understand. First 8 chapters include too much justification for why the book is important. After that, the stories & examples are fascinating & informative.

Apt book title!

I enjoyed listening to this book, it lived up to its title! If you're a non-finance person in industry, an aspiring entrepreneur, an investor or just a regular person seeking to understand the mysterious world of business accounting and what all those terms mean - this book is for you.

You need to listen with the pdf documents

This is not an easy listening book.
You need to listen with the pdf documents at the same time. Treat this book like a lecture, by listening chapters by chapters attentively and taking notes.

over explained

took entirely to long to overly explain ever simple concept. made it hard to concentrate on the difficult ones. Became very tedious after 2 hours, almost impossible to finish the book.

pretty good

my goal was to listen to this in the background as I worked and pick up on even 20% of what was said. I plan to do this again at some point and I think that overall it is worthwhile. :-) this would probably also be handy if you sat down and actually paused every so often to make sure you understand each part very well.

great general corporate finance overview

gives the layman a sound foundation for financial knowledge within the business world. Many of the ideas in this book are also applicable to the investor if you take the time to apply your learning to investment analysis.
