Product Description

All needed modifications have been comprehensively and excellently
done. These modifications are appropriate, making the book attractive for
European readers. -- Lakshmanan Shivakumar, London Business School

The new edition has succeeded in creating an alternative to PHB
for European students.
-- Sanjay W. Bissessur, University of Amsterdam Business School

This book continues where other textbooks stop: it focuses on the
link between accounting figures and corporate strategy. -- Ignace de Beelde, Ghent University

This is an excellent text...the key strengths are the high level
of explanation and the use of real life examples. -- Simon Pallett, University of Newcastle

Format: Hardcover
This text, unlike many other academic student books actualy takes a 'real world' look at business examples. The cases chosen in the book are a good sample which cover each chapter well. Interest levels are maintained throughout due to this real case approach which allows the reader to learn a few 'home truths' about household companies such as "the Gap". For anyone studying Accounting & Business Analysis this is certainly a title to consider.

Format: Paperback
The book provides a good and broad (though somewhat shallow in certain areas) overview of the accountant rules governing IFRS. The case approach is very entertaining, and it covers almost all the adjustment techniques you will need to balance a company's accounts. However, this is not an introductory book to accounting, and so many concepts are taken for granted (eg consolidation methods, risk analysis, etc).
My recommendation is to definitely buy it, read the cases, and keep it in the your office/study desk drawer. It is a great reference book when you come across strange adjustments in the IFRS balance sheets.

This book is bought for one of my tough postgraduate module,thankfully, I succefully pass it althought it was a low mark. Anyway, thank all the same. This book I believe is suitable for relatively higher learner rather than a beginner.

The book is good, however sometimes it is not very clear, otherwise it does bring valuation on a higher level compared to most of the other literature.
