Format:Paperback
Concept of fundamental accounting principals were discussed in length giving pertinent examples. Balance sheet, cash flow and financial statements. Learning the language of acounting is presented in an easy to read format. I have gained good insight into the language of accounting. It's a good book to understand the fundamentals. I recommend to any one who is interested to learn the language of accounting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Key word is review February 2, 2003
Format:Textbook Binding
This realtively short book is a good place to review accounting principles and terminology with excellent examples provided covering Balance sheets, income statements, cash flow reports, etc. This was used as a supplementary text in a course I just completed that was sponsered by a Society of Financial Analysts and used in conjunction with the other material provided by the instructor this book was quite helpful. I will continue to use it as reference. However if you are looking for detailed training in accounting this is NOT the book to choose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended November 27, 2002
Format:Textbook Binding
I am a software engineer who needed to learn the basics of accounting in a hurry. If you know nothing about accounting, this book is for you. It is a small, thin (150pp) book that gives you 'just the facts' with simple real world examples (i.e. why is 7up an asset but Coca Cola is not?)
