Accounting made simple but a little bit too simple

This short book will help you understand the basics of financial statements and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. It's a nice introduction but it felt way too light. It doesn't strike the right balance between brevity and usefulness.

It really explain basic accounting concept in under hundred pages. Not too much detail but you will have good overview of the accounting system of a small business.
Nathanael Lee
Very straightforward read that helped me to grasp a fundamental, rudimentary understanding of Accounting. I will need the concepts learned in this book to prepare for Investment Analysis, and this book has provided an exemplary introduction to the basics of Accounting. Would recommend to anyone looking to the world of Accounting or Business-related fields.

I think the book is very convenient for starters who want to know about the basics of accounting. Also, in my case, I am planning on studying accounting and this book has enlightened me. I have gotten to know accounting from the book and i do not find it's content monotonous, which is great, because I was worried. Best recommendations, it won't be a waste of time.

Accounting could never have been explained clearer. This book helped me a whole lot to review my principles of accounting knowledge. The examples are so easy to understand that it will get stuck in your brain. I just love this book.
Hey, there is no such thing as an exciting accounting book for someone not in CPA school, so this is the next best thing; everything you need, and nothing more, so you can read about something else. It has not one chapter, not one sentence, that is not necessary to get the 10-15 high points across that will make you understand the basics of accounting.

The organization, brevity, and end of chapter reviews are a model for anybody else writing about book about a field like accounting where essenti
Helped With The Basics

Simplified the world of accounting as much as is possible with a subject like this. it also managed to not be too dry.

I'm currently pursuing an MBA degree from Texas Tech and am without a business background (environmental science undergrad). This semester I am taking financial and managerial accounting. Since the class will be my first encounter with any sort of accounting, I wanted to prepare myself somewhat. This book was able to provide me with a little knowledge of very basic accounting principles that I feel will be very beneficial for my upcoming class. At least now I won't be going in completely blind.

This book provides a terrific overwiew of accounting. I never took accounting in school, and have been picking up what I can from books over the 20 years of my career as an IT professional. Now that I'm working with SAP software, which has accounting as its core functionality, I felt the need to put together the pieces into a more cohesive holistic view. This concise book was just what I needed. I highly recommend it!
Highly recommended, this book is an excellent introduction to accounting for those who are not very well acquainted with the field. The length makes it less intimidating, and I definitely feel like I'm ready to tackle longer books devoted to the subject. As this book gave a good, brief overview, I feel like with other books I'll be able to skip forward to the key parts without worrying that I'm missing out on the basics.

Bought this book to brush up on my understanding of the Accountancy. It did an excellent job in explaining the Accounting procedures in a way anyone can understand. Recommended to all Non-Business major interested in building knowledge of this information system.
Veronica Lopez
It was helpful in introductory accounting classes. I plan to periodically re-read to refresh my memory.
