If you like short stories then you are in for a treat. Lloyd writes with sensitivity and compassion, even while her stories are sinister. Her characters are desperate and haunting. Her language is rich, textured and nuanced.

Some examples of her beautiful writing:

"The moon was hanging in the a moist, red grape."
"...he'd a funny hatched face as if he had fallen asleep on a candlewick bedspread"
"...the water was dark, all its facets sombre, slate grey and rippling"

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid book, 29 Dec 2013
I am an MBA student at LBS. Bhimani taught the course and his book has been splendid. The book explains concepts and backs up explanations with examples from modern organisations like Starbucks, Renault, Facebook etc

Each chapter goes into real detail which accountancy students would appreciate. For me as an MBA student i could easily decide on how much depth i wanted on individual topics.

I recommend this book to anyone studying for an exam or who just wants to understand accounting concepts to use at work.
STRATEGIC FINANCE - Achieving High Corporate Perfo&hellip by Alnoor Bhimani
I really enjoyed this book because the language was simple and easy to understand. The author explains difficult concepts using case studies and illustrations which made it interesting eg Zara,Facebook,Mercedes and amazon. I hate numbers and have never been able to grasp financial concepts, but i read a chapter of this book every night and after a week i challenged the accountant where i work and he was surprised! It also explains management issues from a finance point of view which was fascinating. I found it really useful and highly recommend this to anyone who has to deal with financial and management issues.
