Incomplete

This is terrible. It makes references to things that you need to be able to see in order to follow. Without the book its nearly useless. I've tried, I can't find the book anywhere. The only book I've found is Accounting for Dummies 4th edition which is seemingly completely different from this version. What a waste of money this was.

all Fluff

Most of the dummies series that I have read or listened to before had much more information in them. This entire book seemed like the introduction to the information that I am looking for. I am looking for basic accounting with small business applications.
This was a vague intro to accounting.

Rare real review here

So, the big problem lately on audible is the massive volume of fake reviews. So many accounting books have exactly 100 reviews, all perfect 5 star ratings, all submitted on the same day. A variant is all reviews still posted same day, but all are solid 4 star rating, so that at a glance you think the reviews are legit. At least, until you read the broken English. As for this book, I’ve been trying to find a decent intro to accounting book and had to settle for the ‘dummy’ franchise because I knew it would probably be decent... and it was. Too short, mildly helpful, if you have a credit to spare you might as well get it.

Solid resource for an overview of Accounting

Good overview for those needing a macro view of accounting. Touches a wide breadth of topics and areas. Definitely worth 3 hours of your time. I was looking for resources for our operations team to better understand accounting. This is a good fit!

be better at introducing a topic

there is no clear demarcation of topics, so hard to determine context, so it might need a few more headings
