Detailed Enough

This book covers all the way from startup to tax season. It isn't overly detailed but covers most everything you need to know to make sure you are doing appropriate accounting for your business.

Incredibly Helpful

I found this book incredibly helpful! I Learned so many things that I hadn’t even thought of. A must-read for anyone starting out with their own small business. It was a decent to listen too. It was very easy to follow along with and written in a simple and easy to read format. I was able to get through it relatively quickly. A topic like this could very easily be boring and difficult to follow, but this book keeps it upbeat and light. For someone who has never had anything to do with accounting.

Good but not great references in this audible.

Any additional comments?

Although this book has assisted me to grip the gap in accounting. But still not enough as I was expecting from it. I'm currently learning my first Accounting session and I was so disordered with the information and now I'm getting a better understanding of the material!

Its one of the great book.

Any additional comments?

Very simple descriptions, but the book holds enough detail to upsurge your knowledge level about the issue.
Seems great for small business holders who have no hint about the books. It is also decent as a refresher for experienced businessmen and women.

A perfect companion for any accountant.

Any additional comments?

The book is minor in height and only 135 minutes and I listen to it in one sitting. which makes it a fanciful acquaintance when you’re on the go or in the office wanting to examine a company’s three-monthly or yearly report on the fly. It's a 5 star if used in the means of a companion to a further in depth and time intense book with examples and case studies.
