4.0 out of 5 stars IFRS book Review 5 Aug. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the book, but did not just take a look at the edition, which is a bit old (2006) considering the changes that have taken place and the recent developments in IFRS, the book was in very good condition.

I would recommend all my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book!!! 24 Mar. 2006
By Mag Norman Strobl - Published on
This is the first book that really explains IFRS very well. The examples are understandable, it's comprehensive and helps on nearly every issue that might arise when dealing with IFRS.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not value for money 18 Dec. 2007
By Manish C. Iyer - Published on
The book looks to be a summary of the original IFRS text issued by IASB with elementary questions and examples and that too very few. I expected comprehensive disclosure examples and lots of multiple chaoice questions from elementary to highest level. IFRS being a disclosure based standard, the book should contain comprehensive disclosure examples for all permutations and combinations to the maximum possible extent
