Great tips and information!!

It is well organized and easy to reference a particular topic. There is much more than I need to know but plenty of what I did need to know. I guess I haven't been doing things wrong, but at least I understand why things were working the way they were.

All the basics to getting your business going

I've been running my own service company for twenty years. I've done all my own bookkeeping. So why would I need this? Because I've done things in a backwards way at times and often wanted to know what the correct procedure is. I skimmed through the first half of the book in an hour, primarily because I was familiar with a lot of the content and stopped to read in more detail, the items that I needed to know more about. Everything is explained in a clear and easy-to-read manner.

This book is a wonderful resource

This book is going over everything from day to day tasks to doing end of month and end of year reports, and finally filing taxes and prepping for a new accounting cycle. I would think this would be perfect for anyone to have on their desk to check on something you aren't sure about.

Deep analysis!!!

Any additional comments?

Bookkeeping may not be fun, and it's rarely pretty, but you simply cannot run a business without it.If you are starting a nonprofit or are starting roles in an accounting function, probably a good overview to get an idea of how things work.

Wonderful Book

Any additional comments?

This book is a wonderful resource for those who are just starting out their own businesses. Not only does it cover our type of business selling goods, but it also covers businesses that offer services, giving us room for expansion. It covers very small sole proprietorship to much bigger corporations. What I found most helpful in this book were the different types of illustrations and graphs that depict a real business situation.

Good Audio Book

Any additional comments?

This is a good audiobook for anyone looking for help with accounting for a small business. I like how it's visual by showing chart examples. The audiobook was very informative, and also a good book. It wasn't a "boring" listen to either like most audiobook like this one. I would recommend this book.
