Clear, practical, tremendous value

This is one of my favorite audiobooks ever (and I've listened to hundreds). I took financial and managerial accounting classes a few years ago. This worked as a refresher and went beyond that into solid, basic finance topics, very effectively. The information is useful to me for personal finance decisions as well (such as, using discounted value of future cash flows in decision support). Rarely have I found so much useful information so well and so compactly delivered. I will listen to it many times. I hope for more content form this author.

Pleasantly Surprised

What made the experience of listening to Financial Literacy for Managers the most enjoyable?

Great information, enough detail to make it valuable, and not too involved to be cumbersome and boring.

Any additional comments?

I know I will have to listen to this audio book more than once to catch all the information. You need to download the PDF file so you can follow some of the figures, unless you are able to visualize the spoken figures and financial statements, which does require some concentration while you listen. This is definitely not a casual listen, but given the subject, I would not expect it to be.
