Format: Hardcover
As a professor who teaches this topic at both the undergraduate and graduate level, I feel that this text is without a doubt the most cleanly written and well thought-out text there is on this topic. While you might find books out there that are more comprehensive and attempt to cover more material, and ones that might delve into levels of detail and complication in terms of computations, there is simply none better in terms of readability. As a Socratic professor, this is KEY to having my students fully prepared for class.

If you are looking for a "how to" style book with a "preparer emphasis" however, I recommend you look elsewhere to something like Hansen, Noreen or Garrison. The focus on this book is DISTINCTIVELY critical thinking and problem solving concepts, which can be frustrating if you are looking for a "how to manual". Instead, this book focuses on the "why", and does leave more of the "how" to the student and professor than many others.

The book has a very conceptual approach and it's handling of both ethical AND cultural factors involved in the management accounting process is second to none.

For an MBA course looking for a superbly-written book that students can and will read, seeking to blend great conceptual content with the development of critical thinking skills and a true global impact, you simply cannot - and I repeat - cannot beat the new edition of this book - period.

Hard to read, does not have enough sample problems. This text book is for people with an account background as an undergrad. If your undergrad is not accounting, this book does not provide the foundational material that would allow you to read it! To clarify, I did take two undergrad accounting course and to well in both and felt I mastered the material. This book was just to advance and hard to read! Worthless!

Sometimes it's not too clear in explaining the concepts. I would have liked more solutions to problems. There are several typos

Poorly constructed problems and poor grammar throughout the textbook. Typos render some problems useless (on one occasion beginning inventory is stated as 24,000 units when it should clearly be 2,400 for the problem to make sense). The authors did not put enough effort into this.
