This book is probably one of the more interesting financial accounting books out there, but what I found was that all information necessary to pass the class is available for free off of the textbook website which does not require proof of purchase to use! Try watching the narrated slides for each chapter (especially the later chapters) you'll be impressed by the content depth. There are also extensive multiple choice tests, videos etc available for every chapter. don't buy the book, use the website!
This link should work, the website is a really hard to find otherwise. But why would they make it easy?
Update
Ok well apparantly Amazon doesn't want me to share this link, so do a google search for "LIbby 6e financial accounting mhhe" The online resource center for the 6e can still be accesed freely while the 7e is now password protected,

This is a good beginner's book as it provides the basics you need to introduce yourself to the subject. I needed it for a class but it can serve as a good reference guide as well.

This text book provided case by case for each chapter. It really like a good book, explaining the concepts along the way. It could have been more fun if they have had bundled with "free" 10-Ks of notably USA corporations that are good, bad, and ugly.
It have been used by one of the top ten accounting school in the USA.

Buy it so Libby could get rich.

Amazing book, I learned so much from this book. It was hard for me to understand things at first, but when I did after a lot of hard work and focus, I was amazed at the kind of system that is set up at the financial and managerial levels of accounting and how useful it is to have set up for companies.

This is a great introduction accounting book for students that aren't familiar with all the accounting terms and language. The authors did a great job in making this book student friendly.
