Make simple sense of complex financial information!

The high-profile accounting scandals of recent years have made one thing clear: You can't know too much about the company for which you work. What are the numbers? Where do you find them? How do they affect you and your staff?

  • The essential concepts of finance, so you can askintelligent questions and understand the answers
  • Vital statements and reports, with sections on pro forma financial statements and expensing of stock options
  • The auditing process--what is measured, how it'smeasured, and how you can help ensure accuracy and completeness

With chapter-ending quizzes and an online final exam, The McGraw-Hill 36-Hour Course: Finance for Nonfinancial Managers serves as a virtual professor, providing the curriculum you need to crunch the numbers like a pro!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend 30 Jan 2012
By Laurel M. Stavros - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently transitioned out of the military into a corporate job and had no experience with P&L and no financial background but was expected to pick financial terms and concepts up right off the bat. I took an MBA course in finance and accounting to help me out but the information didn't really land as I had no business context with which to understand the information. This book really dumbed down a lot of the information and gave me exactly what I needed to understand the financial statements and budget issues within my company. I highly recommend!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource 28 Feb 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great resource for those in business or in business source. I borrowed this text from our corporate library to use a complimebntary text for an MBA program. I decided to purchase my own copy so the book didn't get too worn.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Longer In Print 5 July 2011
By Laura Anderson - Published on
This book is very useful and handy to have about, however it is now out of print and there is no substitution for it, according to the McGraw Hill rep that I spoke to today, so if you don't already have this book and want it, grab it quick, once it's gone, it's gone for good :(

4.0 out of 5 stars It really help me understand the numbers for a financial report 24 Oct 2013
By stingray - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have never been a number guy but recently I have been serious about learning more about finances . As the book says words are the language of love and numbers are the language of money. I've read, Trading Bases about sports and numbers, I read Moneyball and now, Finance for Nonfinancial managers.
My takeaway is that once you know the formulas and rules of financial reports is not too complicated. You learn about budgets, income statements, and cash flow statements. The reasons I gave it only 4 stars is because more examples of finances for non-business issues like buying a car, or doing a family budget, etc. and the other reason I didn't give it a 5 stars is I personally like summary chapters where you tie everything up and sometimes going further and break it down in a summary type of way.
I recommend it for anybody who sleep walks through budget,meetings. I took the online test and if you pass and will get a certificate.
