Format: Paperback
The AICPA's "The Inside Track to Careers in Accounting" did not meet my expectations. Although it is a great guide for those starting in the accounting profession at the undergraduate level, it does not provide any content on mid career professionals wishing to make a transition into public accounting. There is an increasing trend of persons 25-30 going back to school to receive an MBA with a specialization in accounting. Though they have professional work experience it is hard to understand where these individuals fall within the career track. Everyone has a unique situation of course but I would have preferred the book to be written for more than just those who started there career in accounting or perhaps at least give some what-if scenarios on the increasing trend. More and more professionals will enter the accounting career track when they enter MBA education because the Accounting profession is one of the most secure professions in a troubled economy. Accountants are always in demand. I keep up with the AICPA material as well as other accounting journals, articles, etc. and I have yet to see any author discuss this trend. Overall, great read for one who has received or is going to relieve an undergraduate degree in accounting, but not a great read for anyone without that profile.

Format: Paperback
As a college senior, this book offered some valuable insight in a well organized and easy-to-read format. It discusses pertinent information (e.g. work life, job outlook, salary information, etc.) relating to the different sectors of accounting like public, private, governmental, nonprofit, and corporate accounting. It also tacks on some useful, interesting interviews with some fairly high ranking individuals that enables you to get a better understanding of what the real world expects/thinks.

That being said, the book does not delve very deeply into any particular area. Understandably, at ~347 pages, it only offers a glimpse into an incredibly complex industry. Therefore, I would recommend this book (although I got it from my library, I didn't pay anything for it) to anyone in my position (college level or below) but I think anyone who has been in the industry for any period of time may not find this as useful. Either way, it's a very approachable read.

I really loved this book. I love accounting and real state. I was really lucky to have chance to read this book. The unique part of this book is the main author Stan Ross. Mr. Ross: accountant who specialized in real state industry. He was able to give me insight in to both career path. Loved it. Thank you Mr. Ross.
