The book can be read from cover to cover but the sheer number of good practical ideas means that that most readers would be unlikely to do this. They are more likely to read Part 1, get excited (or worried) about the things that they haven't done and rush out to take action. Alasdair literally showers the reader with ideas, all of which can save money, reduce confusion and increase business control in both financial and operational areas. It would be very difficult to complete the book without saving money, increasing control and removing potential risks.
Financial control is not an exciting subject but this book makes it readable, practical and accessible.
The book is also no respecter of convention, debunking a lot of popular myths and practices along the way. But in doing so, the author always gives hard-hitting practical reasons.
Apart from the systems section, which is a reference work containing a wealth of structural detail, the book is an easy read whether you read cover-to-cover or just dip into individual topics, each topic being self-contained.
At several hundred pages this is a very comprehensive work; not only is it invaluable for financial managers, but it is also absorbing and instructive reading for all managers and directors who are seeking to run a profitable business. I can thoroughly recommend it to any business manager or director, and to any professional advisor.
