Who wrote these other reviews?

I was excited to find a book with such good reviews for people without a background in accounting. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed because there was no explanation of basic accounting terms that led into a discussion on the topic. I wish I could tell you what the beginning chapters were about but I can't as I was lost right from the start.

Excellent for you if no accounting back

The book is a superb start for those who are not accounting related. It debates about the basics of accounting in a way easily understandable to all.

Thorough but designed for US markets

I wanted to learn more about bookkeeping, despite having a bookkeeper in order to better understand the financial information in my business.

I'm based in the UK and some of the information was tailored to US markets and businesses. Absolutely fine, but a UK version would be great.

It's very thorough and covers a lot, while also repeating core points to help the reader.

Small note to the audiobook company too, 11:18 into chapter 49, the reader makes a mistake and swears. Not a massive deal but editing should have caught it and I had kids in the car.

I liked this book

I liked this book, it did teach me a lot. The book is broken down into to several chapters outlines get the importance of pre planning for your taxes. I have owned a small business previously and it did not survive, some of that was due to the lack of pre planning on my part.
