From the Back Cover

Unique in approach, this book provides a balanced, cohesive integration of management and accounting. It teaches how a business manager uses management accounting information to solve problems and manage activities within an organization. Accounting majors aspiring to become management accountants learn how to design and operate information systems that create value for their organizations. The entire book blends contemporary theory and the latest research in management accounting with practical applications and actual company experiences. It contains many new, current company experiences and case examples that depict how actual businesses are applying the concepts discussed — e.g., Microsoft's Windows '95. This book shows how managerial accounting information is used in the decision making process in manufacturing, service, and government/not-for-profit organizations. It offers a business management rather than an accounting perspective throughout, and explores managerial concerns beyond the common boundaries of product costing .Uses extensive examples drawn from real-world organizations.

I've just completed my managerial accounting course with an "A" grade DESPITE having been assigned this text. These authors, like many accounting authors, don't know how to use language to convey the concepts they're attempting to get across. (Does that mean they're "numbers people" who can't use language correctly to develop ideas?? Perhaps!!!) Even more so, the way they choose to conceptually develop managerial accounting theory is somewhat farcical. If you've been assigned this text from your instructor, RUN OUT NOW AND INVESTIGATE OTHER MANAGERIAL ACCOUNTING TEXTS TO USE IN CONJUCTION WITH IT. (Try "Managerial Accounting" Weygandt, Kieso and Kimmel) The problem with "Management Accounting" is that it has little precision in describing the main issues of managerial accounting and wants to be an Operations Management text or Management text rather than an authentic Managerial Accounting text. As students, let's vote with our wallets and tell these accounting authors to get a 2nd degree in English so that they can actually convey to us the ideas they're attempting to convey!!! Tell your professor he/she needs to wake up and change texts! The book was written for people who really don't want to actually learn Managerial Accounting theory, but want to pretend to have learned it. It can't describe the critical concepts in enough detail for you to get a good grip on the material - and it's conceptual development of the theory is confusing. Switch it!

My MBA program used this book. I found the book easy to read and liked its consideration of behavioral issues usually ignored in other books. The book covers new and important topics in management accounting (activity-based costing, balanced scorecard, JIT, target costing, kaizen costing, environmental costing and benchmarking). A companion book (Readings in Management Accounting) has lots of articles describing applications of material presented in the textbook.

My gosh, I have never read such a poorly written book! Wasn't there an editor at Prentice Hall to have, at least, reviewed this book prior of it going out to print? The poor grammar usage, the garble & ambiguity of explaing the concepts; it truly lacks direction...where are the solutions to the problem exercises?
I consider myself a strong avid reader, but I have found myself re-reading a page or two before pressing on.
If this is a required textbook for your accounting class, I highly suggest investing in a good supplemental study guide to aid you with this book. Good luck!!

Read this book for one of my MBA courses. Found it a good read. Coming from a Financial Management course I was leery about this course and its textbook, but the text helped me a lot.
