Product Description

From the Back Cover

The first edition of The Internal Auditing Handbook received wide acclaim from readers and became established as one of the definitive publications on internal auditing. There have been a number of significant changes in the practice of internal auditing since publication of the first edition and this thoroughly revised second edition reflects those changes. The second edition provides coverage of the new definition of internal audit issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA). It includes a new set of professional auditing standards and places a greater emphasis on professionalism. The key role of auditors in corporate governance is discussed and a new focus is provided on risk management. The second edition also examines the elevation of the status of the internal auditor from CIA to director of internal auditing and focuses on increased expectations from boards and audit committees. Attention is also given to the increasing competitive environment that exists between the large accounting firms. Another important addition involves the growing interest that is being placed in the self–audit concept.

This new edition of the Internal Auditing Handbook will prove to be an indispensable reference for both new and experienced auditors, as well as business managers, members of audit committees, control and compliance teams, and all those who may have an interest in promoting corporate governance.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is possibly the worst textbook ever published in the English language. Massively overlong, extraordinarily tedious, strewn with numerous spelling and proof-reading errors, endless duplication, reams and reams of text without any bullet-points, paragraphs or diagrams. It frequently just cuts and pastes secondary material in without providing any commentary or context so that the reader can understand the relevance of the material or why he or she should bother to read it. The author frequently name drops other writers, again without explaining who they are or why we should regard them as a competent authority. Most of the business examples in the text seem to have been provided by the Daily Mail.

I can't believe that the UK Institute of Internal Auditors would have this book as their standard textbook for the MIIA course. Students of Internal Auditing would be much better advised to use the Tolley Corporate Governance Handbook, or indeed almost any other book.

...I am of course pleased to find that this book quotes from 'Marketing internal audit' that I wrote for Internal Auditing and Business Risk, and quite properly credits me, but I'd just like to point out that I am, in fact, not a man as stated in the text...
