Packed with valuable information.

It started my mind thinking about how I organize and plan for the person who does my accounting though and gave me a better understanding of what all goes into that work. I will say this is an easy read, nothing overly technical or hard to understand, so a great stepping off guide into the world of startups, LLC, etc.

A premier book.

I would love to say this book is very good for the person who needs to learn Financial Accounting or someone that wants to be more familiar with the accounting done within their business and how it all starts to work. I do not think this is a book that can possibly cover all that one needs to know about accounting for a small business, and honestly, we hire out for big accounting tasks

This book is a must read to educate yourself

If you are looking to learn Financial Accounting from basics, this book would be a great starting point. It is easy to read and covers a lot of basic information. Once you have read it, I would suggest looking more into your niche and seeing the laws on taxes.

Nice Starting book to learn Financial Accounting.

The author described financial accounting terms well and when you are finished with this book you should have a middle level understanding of how to manage financial accounting of your own. I also like that it explains it very easily. I am an audibly learner and this helps me to understand by actually listening the data.

This book scratches a very broad surface.

I like this audible because it came with a top and easy to follow tips that you can do to test whether or not you have booked the information presented. If you feel the same way I do about financial accounting you probably won’t retain everything right away and will really appreciate having access to these tools to get a quick and dirty reminder of what you need to know.

This book offers you a quick synopsis

I found this book to be very useful, though I still found it to be a bit dull and unclear at times and that’s probably just because of my tepid relationship with all things related to math in general. The book offers you a quick synopsis of the typical financial accounting jargon and very basic need-to-know math behind it. As many other critics point out, you perhaps won’t be able to successfully do your own accounting using just this book. But you will begin to understand the basics and get the since that it’s not as hard as you might think it is to keep track of your small business money.

The book has tons of great ideas.

The audible is very good but still I don't believe that this will be the last book to help you understand the financial accounting. Accounting is one of those things that you cannot unfortunately understand and could cover in a book. There are just so numerous varying and refinement that will take issue from business organization to business organization. The book has tons of good data if you are not associate with dissimilar accounting processes.

Financial Accounting, a way to live a life.

After listening to this book. I thought I should highlight features and drawbacks that I would want to know about as a buyer, not hype the product for the manufacturer. The author’s effort is admirable and I would like to recommend it to every financial accountant.
