Great book that explains everything soo well. I don't have a financial background but run a small business and needed to learn how to keep the books better and do some financial reporting. This book taught me everything and used lamen terms to explain it all.

A budding entrepreneur needs some knowledge of business finance and operations. This text constitutes a short course on Finance an Accounting Principles. "Financial Intelligence for Entrepreneurs" provides an insightful overview into the meanings of financial numbers while not really delving into the depths of accounting required for a complete analysis. It is useful - especially from a strategic perspective, and it is easy to assimilate. I was able to get through about 80% of the text in a weekend. The last one-third of the text consists of a "Toolbox" of spreadsheet examples and methods to apply in analyzing your own company - or potential investments. I underlined and highlighted extensively and expect to re-read parts until the ideas are mastered.

I deeply appreciate the ease with which the authors of this book explain every subject. Finance can be complicated, but gratefully there are still people willing to translate difficult topics that make sense to the common folk.

Concise & clarifying introduction /on the subject. Notwithstanding & given that accounting principles are not overly logical for science trained readers, I would have welcomed a bit more explaining on the reasons why accounting has a tendency to use such seemingly complicated methods to simple numerical exercises.

Very very nice explained! Better than a lot university courses! This book is mainly aimed to non financial people, however people who has financial background can learn too. Normally financial books are boring, this one is short and you will definitely learn. It focus on the main ratios you need to know, and will tell you what the numbers mean.

I'm in the industry, and have found so many books overcomplicate things for people who DON'T have an accounting degree. This is the best I've seen in terms of accuracy and simplification.

I do small business consulting and teach a college level entrepreneurial finance course. This book delivers EXACTLY what it says it will. It is my go to guide for teaching and does a great job highlighting the intelligence part!

I am not an entrepreneur, but I work for a very small start-up with increasing business responsibilities from marketing to finance, which is out of my area of expertise (life science). This book is really great in helping an individual develop a solid foundation for understanding and applying the financial knowledge within this book. The author's writing style is engaging and the exercises at the end of the book were useful. Overall, pleased with the book!

Awesome book, very easy to read. I’m glad this book was recommended to me, it explains a lot of business concepts that most people don’t know.
