From the Publisher
Unlike other government and not-for-profit (NFP) books, this one is directed at potential users rather than preparers of financial reports. It demonstrates the significance of reported information and shows users (managers, investors, taxpayers, legislators, trustees) how to interpret and analyze accounting information. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
Orlando Science Center (featured on the cover of this text) is not only a highly successful not-for-profit organization, it's also located in the first city to incorporate the latest GASB pronouncements!

Now packaged with a free CD-ROM containing Orlando's comprehensive annula financial report (CARF) for 2000, Granof's Second Edition of GOVERNMENT AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT ACCOUNTING takes a fresh look at the unique features of governmental and not-for-profit accounting. The new edition is also completely revised and updated with:
- The latest GASB pronouncements through Statement No. 36 and Interpretation No. 6
- The new accounting model, which is integrated throughout the text
- Recent updates to the Single Audit Act and Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board pronouncements
You can use the accompanying CD-ROM to search Orlando's CAFR, to obtain hands-on experience in reviewing and analyzing data, and to solve the continuing problem that appears at the end of every chapter in the book.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1. It will ask you questions that were not addressed in the reading or examples. This one ticks me off the most. If a question is presented then it should be covered somewhere in the reading. I am not saying that all questions require examples to be present but at least address a question if asked.
2. It is very wordy, it is full of fluff, to the point where it is easy to get lost in the reading because you have no idea what the book is actually trying to cover.
3. Governmental accounting is a complex subject, so instead of carefully explaining and placing examples, the book will sometimes have examples that go on for pages trying to explain numerous issues. Comprehensive examples are fine at the end of chapters but when someone is trying to get the basics, there is no need to have a huge multistage comprehensive example that has to be deciphered every time you look at it.
4. The book does not do a good job of dividing the material. In one section, scratch that, in one paragraph it will try to cover so many different points that I have to read paragraphs four and five times to pick out the parts that relate to each subject.
