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.

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!
