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.

Stay away from the audio version

Would you try another book from Richard A. Lambert and/or Kaleo Griffith?

Yes, but probably not another audio one.


Would you ever listen to anything by Richard A. Lambert again?

Very unlikely.


Any additional comments?

This book might be just fine, it seems to have some insightful information; however, it is horrible in audio form.

They give a lot of examples of financial reports and how to interpret them. Normally this would be great; but, they read the numbers in the tables row-by-row, column-by-column. Some of these tables take a couple of minutes to get through. It is very tedious and doesn't help you understand what they are talking about. I don't think anyone could absorb information like this. Would be much better if they had just said, "see the attached PDF."

This is one of the few audio-books that I just couldn't finish.
