Quite unusual for a book concerning the topic of audit to actually be interesting to read. I found the book sufficiently detailed with technical content to provide the reader with an understanding of technical requirements of a statutory audit and also of the need for the internal audit and its impact both internally and externally.

The use of the "plain English" conversion tables enables the reader to understand quite dry, technical audit details (especially the ISAs) with relative ease.

I particularly liked the author's use of varying, but consistent, formats i.e. flowcharts, diagrams and narrative. This will certainly help reinforce the reader's understanding of content without appearing repetitious (very clever!).

Alan Lewin's use of question prompts (often pre-empting my own!) were also extremely useful and should help readers to apply theoretical aspects of audit to practical situations.

Summary:

I would recommend this book to students as a supplement to audit textbooks (not a replacement) and anyone without an accounting or audit background wishing to get an understanding of the statutory audit process, should (as I have) find this book very useful.

Well written and illustrated book, as Auditing can be a difficult subject to study, this book makes it much easier and excellent on explaining the whole process. Would recommend this book and have done to other students in my class.

A great introduction to auditing . I'm studying for a BA in accounting & Finance and found this a great intro? Really easy to read but not extensive enough alone.

Bought this when returning to studying after several years, found it helped me to understand the basics with clear simply examples.
Good clear 'plain english' translations of ISA. If studying at a higher level will only take you so far,.
Overall I was really pleased with the content
