In today’s world where few things except change are assured, a career in a field that is in fact rife with assurances makes considerable sense. As the old saying goes, the only things for sure are death and taxes. With the advances in bio-engineering death may be put off a long time, but taxes will absolutely be here every year. Accountants are the only people who understand taxes (along with much more). So if you want stability and opportunity you might consider a degree in accounting.

If that sounds interesting, then this is the place to begin your search. This is a well thought out compilation of insightful articles that are sure to give you a clear insight into this lucrative field.

If it were easy to be rich and famous everyone would have riches and fame. It’s no secret things worth having require real effort so it should be no surprise when Professor Michael Bitter says: “To be candid, accounting is not an easy discipline for many – hence the reason why accountants are in demand and why career opportunities are so strong.”

Understanding it worth the effort, then the choice is, if it is for you? And if so, how so? This is the starting point to understanding not only that it is worth it, but also, how accounting can fit into your life plan.

Not sure? Of course – for most people reading this book it is a starting point. The good news is it is a well written, easy to read, user friendly book that will help you move toward your final decision. I highly recommend it.

If a student is mathematically inclined but doesn’t know the options available, and chooses not to teach, this book will open their eyes to the many opportunities in the field of accounting. This book, Accounting for the Curious, is a compilation of opinions of many enthusiastic accounting educators, each giving their opinion why accounting is a good field to pursue. Most expound on the fact that all businesses, corporations, private enterprise, government and education need accountants, and accountants are in great demand. Recent graduates can expect to earn good pay right out of college, and an accounting degree can open doors to other fields. Accounting requires good judgment, analytical and technical abilities. This book also talks about scholarships. Accounting is a field of opportunity. This book is a good introduction and should be read by students considering pursuing the field of accounting.

If you are thinking about a major in accounting, or a degree in accounting, this may be the book for you. It's written by experts in the accounting field who tell you what you can do with an accounting degree. You may be surprised, you can do many different things within a given business. You don't have to sit at your desk all day and look at numbers. In fact, many CEOs, heads of corporations, began with accounting degrees.

This is nonsense. A whole lot of words without any substantial meaning. I really did not want to know what certain people in the profession "feel" about accounting. The "truth" this book claims to have is much better found with a single google search. As a PhD candidate I wanted to know about the academic side of accounting and how these professors conducted meaningful research in a field such as accounting. Do not bother with this pamphlet.
