A good book for degree students studying financial accounting at a fairly basic level, this book provides a sound basis for further study into the subject. The layout is inviting and user friendly with a well written dialogue throughout stating clearly the facts and concepts behind financial accounting. This book follows on nicely from the financial aspects of Accounting: An Introduction by McLaney and Attrill explaining further the practices involved and is a good companion for a second year module to an Accounting/Business orientated degree program. Overall a good textbook for the serious user and well worth a look.

This is probably one of the best books on financial accounting. It clearly explains, step by step the WHY of financial transactions and, hence, increases your understanding about this material. Each chapter ends with a lot of exercises.
Buy it together with its student solutions manual (if you can find it) because all the solutions of the exercises are there. I really can recommend it to everybody who wants to understand the world of financial accounting

We use "Introduction to Financial Accounting" in our first year Financial Accounting course. I really like the book. Visually clear and appealing, clear language, good examples, good structure. The book truly belongs to a new generation of F&A books that make an effort to demonstrate how and why F&A is interesting. It points out connections and background info. In my opinion a well-written and interesting introduction.
