Not for you if your looking for a bookkeeping treatise.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Accounting For Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback)) (Paperback)This book is great (I mean great) if you need to understand what is profit, whats in a balance sheet, how to understand it, whats in an income statement. What are assets, etc, etc. This book will open your eyes. Like others have said its not about double entry bookkeeping, or how to prepare your balance sheet. Find that elsewhere. This book addresses what the numbers mean and how to follow them to come to conclusions and how to use that information.
Let me put it this way. If you have a small business, or are put into a position where you need to manage money for a business, or need to buy a business. This book will help you if your not accountant savy.
Its a great book, and is very well written. Another five star success for the dummies series.
