This was an extremely helpful book for understanding how to read a balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement. How to analyze this data to see where your business is in trouble, where you should invest, and how to project your goals for the coming year in a trackable, actionable way. Recommended.

I'd always assumed that financial reports were best left to CPAs, that they were simply too complex to be understood by a layman. I found it not only useful, but I also really got into it and wanted to start looking at everyone's financials to see if I could help them improve their business with my new knowledge.
Anyway, I think this book is immensely useful for self-employed people and small business owners. You'll learn not only about the Balance Sheet, Income Statement, and Cash Flow statement

This is a great book for non-accountant business owners. It explains what reports you should look at and what you should look for in them. It explains how to watch your business over time.

There are plenty of small business that go out of business while showing a profit. Learn to keep your eyes on your cash flow.
