I am disappointed.

I'm a quick study on math-type things (as a former MBA student), and I was hoping for things to be explained so I could understand them and use them. Instead, this is more of a prescriptive approach, I just able to understand the points but if a person nothing knows about forensic will not be able to follow you. Keep it a bit simple. (Its my perception, not necessary you should agree with it.)

Great for those who are starting a new business.

If you are already familiar with basic accounting and auditing then, I stress this to you and try to make yourself a pro in this field. You need to understand how the numbers go together and what they mean in a small business or you will end up like the other 80% that fail. This book helps you learn those numbers.

Positive recommendations for everyone.

Especially valuable are the sections on Forensic Accountants and Auditor, since reading and understanding them make a world of difference in being able to make sense of annual reports, retirement benefits, and basically any other stock-related correspondence.

Good introduction to Forensic principles

I found this book to be a decently written on the topic, understandable review of basic Forensic principles. It's written for those with a limited background in Forensic accounting; if you've studied accounting for a while it's a quick review, but probably won't teach you much.

The topic of my life.

For years I have been struggling with this topic. A friend of mine suggested me this book to understand the forensic. The book was written in a manner that was so easy to use and understand in my daily life, that by the time I finished listening to it (and I couldn't put it down-an accounting book?), I felt so much more confident in dealing with my financial people. Good job.

Good book for Accountants. Great service.

As an accountant, very pleased with it. For years I have been struggling with this topic. But not now after listening to this fabulous book. As I have done this I have had to understand more and more about accounting in order to deal with my bankers, my financial advisors and my CPA.

Easy listening for a difficult to read topic

I just discovered this series of books last week. This particular package is the first I have listened to and completed and I am optimistic for the rest. I can highly recommend this one. The subject of audit is not often easy to read about, and undertaking an audit can be quite an excruciatingly stressful endeavour especially when it is not in your daily job description.

However, listening to the subject of audit discussed alongside forensic accounting and in extended context makes it more interesting, and the reasons for doing it, the process and the outcome with the attendant benefits become more tangible. Full marks to the author and the narrators.

Pretty easy to follow.

The topic is no doubt complex but this book is pretty easy to read, follow and understand. Breaks down concepts of Forensic accounting into simple steps. Gives examples and provides additional support at the end too.

Excellent refresher.

If you have had some type of accounting experience before but are rusty, this book is excellent as it easily brings back accounting knowledge which one once possessed. Not very detailed and advanced, but an excellent guide for a refresher course.
