That said, its written in clear language and offers a broadbrush overview of basic finance. I think it spends a bit too much time on stocks and other financial instruments for an actual businessperson -- I mean, who of us actually buys or sells these things for our company?
The best part was the description of the financial ratios. These you'll use everyday and I'll keep the book after the class is done for this reason.
I read this book twice, but some things just didn't click.
And he was terrible at the whole 'teaching' thing. He said "most students fail their first time and then have to retake it, and end up doing well."
Right. Whatever, maybe I just suck at business, but I consider myself pretty smart.
This book definitely needs to be coupled with a competent professor.
