I like the way the book uses cases to show the additional insights you get by using their approach by comparing it to the results you would get from the case with the traditional approaches. The authors are honest about the complications and difficulties and that helps us better assess the trade-offs.
This is a book that requires some background in traditional cost accounting and then after this book you will want to do more reading study and real-world analysis. It isn't a panacea nor does it try to be. But it sure is interesting and helpful if you care about the subject.
I bought it used through Amazon and paid about $10.00 -- it was promptly delivered in perfect condition.
