Top Customer Reviews
I must say that I had expected to find a host of glowing reviews for The Definitive Guide to Managing the Numbers here on Amazon. When I arrived, I was amazed to see that one reviewer had given the book a one star rating AND had written a fairly abusive comment. In my opinion, The Definitive Guide to Managing the Numbers is an excellent purchase.
I was so baffled by the other reviewer's opinion that I searched his name on the Amazon site, to see if there were any other books to which he had taken such a strong disliking. Unfortunately, his only other review was for a Playstation game called Grand Theft Auto (which he described as "Awesome, Awesome, Awesome"). Perhaps the publishers of Managing The Numbers should add a footnote to their description of the book, which says "Rated 12 years and above"...
In my opinion, Managing the Numbers is fantastic value for competent readers. I recommend it highly.
I have already ordered The Definitive Business Plan, and I look forward to Mr Stutely's next business guide... Please keep up the good work!
It consciously avoids the sterile academic debates and focusses clearly on value added ideas and initiatives. The 10 questions sections are incredible powerful.
I am a qualified accountant wIth several years exprience of financial management, and like others, I am baffled by the single negative review! Perhaps he was looking for an academic textbook? This is great!
