Publisher's Summary

Say goodbye to scratching your head in confusion!
This accounting audiobook could be the answer you're looking for....
This audiobook is intended for people who want to know something about the fundamentals of financial accounting without becoming an accountant. Many people are in this position: small business owners, employers, employees, stockholders, investors, and many, many more. Most of these folks do not need a deep understanding of accounting; they just need to learn what accounting is and how they should be using it. Just as important, they need to understand what accountants are talking about in their reports. They must learn the vocabulary and the most important terms. If you are one of those, you have found the right book for you.
We will examine this subject in some detail, discussing accounting fundamentals, the various areas where accounting professionals work, and the information they produce. We will also examine the measures and ratios that accountants use to analyze an organization's performance and the important relationship between time and money. The fact that information is the product of accounting will remain foremost in this book.
Here are just some of the topics that are discussed within this audiobook:

Accounting is Different From Bookkeeping
Understanding the Vocabulary
Accounting Reports: The Income Statement
The Balance Sheet
The Cash Flow Statement
The Accounting Equation
The CPA and Public Accounting
Jobs in Accounting: Financial Accounting
Tax Accounting

And much, much more

Detailed Enough

This book covers all the way from startup to tax season. It isn't overly detailed but covers most everything you need to know to make sure you are doing appropriate accounting for your business.

Good Explanations

This book is being explained in a helpful voice with good direction and background for each area covered. This is not by any means a direct step by step because every business has different needs and accounting but it covers the basics for many different aspects so you can get a good start and-and know when to adjust if necessary.

A well written audible for us.

Any additional comments?

Indeed, it is very well written book. Concise with admirable examples. The author apparently has an aptitude for illumination complex perceptions with a minimal use of words.

Good title and good descriptions.

Any additional comments?

This book does precisely what it's patrician, I am an accountant and notwithstanding my drive for accounting it has gotten very confusing this book untangled the mental knot in my head for each aspect that it covers.
