"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This book provides an excellent, basic primer in international accounting. It is easily read by anyone with a basic understanding of business and finance and/or accounting. The authors provide numerous examples of international financial reporting, taken from actual financial statements and annual reports.
Here are my gripes:
a) The authors do not concentrate on the essential. Particularly painful for me were chapters 3 and 4. There were so many long narratives that touched on insignificant things. See page 132: What changed in accounting when Mexico declared independence from Spain? Instead, information of relevance is missing. For example the accounting for pension liabilities in other countries should have been examined closer.
b) Explanations are complicated and long.
c) One is unnecessarily burdened with references to what happened in the past. Who cares what regulation was passed in 1965 when it is no longer in effect today. Such references may be appropriate for a research paper, but not for a textbook. When we get out in the real world, it will be more important to know what rules are in effect at this point.
Overall, it was a drag studying from this book week by week. Isn't there anything better out there on international accounting?
