Format: Hardcover
This was the course textbook for my paper at the University of Otago, ACCT302 Accounting Performance Management. I was looking for a kindle version, or a preview of the book on google books (which I could not find) and I relegated to reading the hardcopy provided by my university's library under reserve section. I am used to reading journal articles, factual approaches, sound frameworks and structured approaches to problems and clear definitions.

I find the explanations to be so basic that the average competent commerce student would have already known and understood. I require in depth explanation and analysis in specific areas instead of a broad overview touching briefly on multiple factors (that other textbooks and course curriculum explained far better, and often in contradiction to the statements listed) without explaining the nuances. As oft said, the devil is in the details. Examples are dated, isolated and not investigated in depth pertaining to the environmental circumstances the firm is in and the proper attribution of success to respective efforts (or factors). The economy and business strategy have changed rapidly in the past two decades from 1990s to 2000s and now, 2010s.

This book comes out as writing too broadly about too much, too simplistic for a 300 level paper (3rd year study in Uni). It does not possess strong conceptual foundation, making it a poor read for people trying to learn about Management Accounting. I can only see myself consulting more authoritative journal articles and textbooks on the keywords & terms raised in this textbook.

This may be the problem with attempting to teach "Management" in general. If you have to get this textbook for your course at University, get a second hand one. It is NOT worth the first hand price. If you're looking to learn more about aspects of Management Accounting, forget this book entirely. It is a waste of time and there are better books out there.

This text offers a very up-to-date elaboration of the various control techniques that managers may use and their strengths and weaknesses. It is an excellent tool for managers who are considering improvements in procedures to more fairly incentivize and motivate within the organization, and as holistically as possible.

When the seller says the condition of the book is good, I usually expect that it really looks good. As far as I can tell, this book is at least owned by 3 people. How can I tell? The book is highlighted by two different color highlighters and a pencil. Well, it is ok to use highlighter. BUT, do not highlight ENTIRE PARAGRAPH FOR EVERY PAGE. The reason that I did not return the book is that I have to do the homework in the book every week and that it is wasting time to buy another one. Well, actually, I do not want to rate this book, but amazon emails me. So, just go buy international version, cost much less.

If you're into Management Control Systems textbooks, I'm sure you'll love this. Seriously though, it's above-average for a textbook, and I've enjoyed it.
