This short, readable book (roughly 225 pages cover-to-cover) is written by an accounting professional who has shared his expertise with students and business people around the world. The 12 chapters are logically presented and offer easy-to-digest examples to bring the material to life.
Each chapter also has a glossary of terms that can help make accounting jargon understandable to non-accounting folks who work in the business world. So if concepts such as: balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, GAAP rules, accounting ratios and interpreting financial statements make your eyes glaze over — but you realize that you need to understand the basics of accounting — this is probably the book for you.
