Baker's Pro-Guide Lip Balm SPF-15 (Cherry) 3-PACK

This is a great book for both the finance savy and those struggling to get a grip on your company finances. I would highly recommend it for any architect, engineer or graphic design firm; but know that the principles are easily applied to any business. Like a good foundation the authors starts at the beginning and builds to your end goal with each chapter. The most valuable aspect of this book is that the material was presented in a way that is easy to understand, even while watching TV. What would make the book better? I would suggest a section on applying the strategies with QuickBooks. Since the majority of small to medium design firms use QuickBooks for their accounting it would have been really helpful if the book had presented example companies with charts of accounts, budgets, P&L, profit plan, etc using QuickBooks software. Even if your firm is profitable I would recommend reading this book to help you find those subtl;e areas in your business where you can make improvements.

As a busy Architect who did not double major in business, this book not only helped me understand how to really know how my company was (or wasn't) doing financially, it helped me communicate what my Accountant needed to know (he did not double major in Architecture.) I highly recommend this book to all Sole Proprietor Architects who want to know how much money they need to keep the ship floating! Good luck!

I was hoping to find a decent financial book that would really delve into the issues related to financial reporting/benchmarking for a design firm. This book isn't written for the professional accountant who does the books for a design firm: instead it's written for the manger and provides only the most rudimental information about finances. And the cost simply doesn't make it worth the purchase price

This books covers the principles of financial management for design firms or professional service firms. It's a good book but it probably could have been shorter given the content. Some parts, particularly at the beginning are kind of boring. Definitely worth having if you are involved in project finance or manpower for PSFs.
