More About the Author

I enjoy translating complex financial and political topics critical to people's everyday life in language that can be easily understood. I do this through my non fiction "how to" books for the Dummies series and the Idiot's Guides. I have more than 25 finance and political books on the market. Prior to writing books, I've worked as a daily newspaper reporter, a magazine editor, a press secretary for a U.S. Congressman and a fund raiser for former President Jimmy Carter, so he can continue his international work through The Carter Center. I earned my MBA at Emory University's Goizueta Business School and my BA at Rutgers University.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book does an excellent job of taking you through the steps of setting up your accounting system. Starting with business structure, then on to developing your chart of accounts, and then teaching you how to work with dual entry accounting for all aspects of your business - sales, expenses, employees and benefits, and taxes. It also teaches you how to close the books monthly, develop financial statements and finanlize your year-end close. Great stuff! Easy to read and understand.

This book was one of the ones recommended to me by a friend who's a CPA. It does a good job of explaining the principles of accounting, but if you use it by itself you'll still have a few questions. I would recommend supplementing it with Alpha Teach Yourself Accounting in 24 Hours, as well as online research.

I didn't find this book helpful at all. I knew nothing about accounting before I read it, and I still know nothing about accounting. I just sat down with the book and some ledger paper and attempted to set up an accounting system for my business. I am completely unable to follow any of the book's instructions and still don't understand some of the book's most basic ideas--like the difference between debits and credits. I don't think this is the book for absolute accounting beginners.

I wasn't impressed with the over-all organization of this book, though almost every accounting issue is approached the overiding narrative is not in a logical order, in my opinion.
