Well narrated. Very clear.

Some mistakes weren't edited out. Narrator stumbles a few times. Errors and corrections, along with the phrase "Take two", still present.

A prescribed book

A lot of examples, various detail as well as a large amount of detail, and even illustrated examples. Some non-college textbooks don't have as many balance sheet examples, which are abundant in Accounting Principles-2008. I used this book in college, and I am so sorry that I ever got rid of it. This was a helpful and every explanatory book.

Super!!!

The value of this book is that it breaks down accounting fundamentals to the irreducible minimum. Using this book, one can learn the fundamentals well and then everything that builds on that will be a lot easier.

Packed with great information

Great book. Very simple explanations, but the book contains enough detail to increase your knowledge level about the subject. Great for small business owners who have no clue about the books. It is also good as a refresher for seasoned businessmen and women.

Very detailed book.

Even though business owners may not be accountants, they must become knowledgeable in accounting to be successful. Small business owners need to get a grasp of their companies books and not just their checkbooks.
