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.

Couldn't finish

What disappointed you about Financial Literacy for Managers?

This book is probably just fine to read. However I don't think that it lends itself well to an audiobook format.

Any additional comments?

It is pretty rare that I can't finish a book. I've listen to thousands and this is been one of the few that I abandoned early on. It's not that the book doesn't have good information; it does. It just really isn't suited to be an audiobook.

Informative but is prob best bought in hard copy

As a accountant in training I know most of the stuff in this book and it roughly follows the training syllabus. The only thing is that it offers examples which can be difficult to follow in audio format. I found myself zoning out in thought and missing the start of new chapters!

An excellent audio book

I am going to listen that again and again. I like it pretty much. Another step to get better in financial accounting and an analysis of financial statements.
