Say goodbye to scratching your head in confusion!

This accounting audiobook could be the answer you're looking for....

This audiobook is intended for people who want to know something about the fundamentals of financial accounting without becoming an accountant. Many people are in this position: small business owners, employers, employees, stockholders, investors, and many, many more. Most of these folks do not need a deep understanding of accounting; they just need to learn what accounting is and how they should be using it. Just as important, they need to understand what accountants are talking about in their reports. They must learn the vocabulary and the most important terms. If you are one of those, you have found the right book for you.

We will examine this subject in some detail, discussing accounting fundamentals, the various areas where accounting professionals work, and the information they produce. We will also examine the measures and ratios that accountants use to analyze an organization's performance and the important relationship between time and money. The fact that information is the product of accounting will remain foremost in this book.

Here are just some of the topics that are discussed within this audiobook:

  • Accounting is Different From Bookkeeping
  • Understanding the Vocabulary
  • Accounting Reports: The Income Statement
  • The Balance Sheet
  • The Cash Flow Statement
  • The Accounting Equation
  • The CPA and Public Accounting
  • Jobs in Accounting: Financial Accounting
  • Tax Accounting

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.

Good Explanations

This book is being explained in a helpful voice with good direction and background for each area covered. This is not by any means a direct step by step because every business has different needs and accounting but it covers the basics for many different aspects so you can get a good start and-and know when to adjust if necessary.

This Author is good

This book can teach you some basic terms and concepts, but if you don't have a good background in bookkeeping you may want to look further for a detailed "how to" book. It really is a simple, straightforward easy to understand the book.

Good One

I think this is a good book for newer businesses. It helps understand the different aspects of accounting. The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is the fact that the layout is kinda weird sometimes, and sometimes I feel like it is more advanced than beginners. But I guess everyone is on different levels in their understandings of accounting terms.

Worth Listening

This book includes so many tips to make accounting easy and includes definitions of common accounting terms, which was a great to help to me as an accounting newbie. I used the tips and tricks I learned to help my uncle with accounting for his self-owned construction company, and we both are thrilled.

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 For Your Business

It is important to determine how to set up for any kind of business. This is not something I am good at, and it explains things at a basic level. If you are looking for a book to start out with basic accounting, this is your book. It goes through terms and abbreviations, what they stand for and mean. It gives you examples, which helps to clarify any mistaken ideas.

Very easy to listen. It is certainly great for beginners. Audio chapters are small and to the fact. It is simple and interesting. The author was better and super focused and committed.

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!

I am not an accountant but now I feel that I am. If you want to know how accounting entries are completed and how financial declarations are connected, then this book can help you.
