Anyone counting on the other books is struggling harder with Quickbooks than those of us who were smart enough to buy this book. Kathy Ivens writes as if she knows you, and knows exactly the questions you have.
Her hints and tips about setting up the software are pure genius. She explains the bookkeeping theories behind every suggestion she makes.
This book is replete with real-life bookkeeping tasks and the best way to perform them - and why you should perform them that way. When she gives choices about doing transactions, she explains exactly what the ramifications are of each choice - so you can make decisions based on your own business, and your own bookkeeping needs.
This is a brilliant example of how to write a book about using software.
This book does the best job of explaining Quickbooks and how it works, and what it does, and why it does it that way, and how to make it do things a different way if what you want to track in your bookkeeping is a little different.
The author not only knows Quickbooks, she knows accounting, and best of all, she understands how small businesses work. She knows that we don't all follow the same formula. By the time you finish reading a couple of sets of instructions in this book, you understand how much more flexible Quickbooks is than you thought (or than the authors of other books understand).
Buy this book and you'll have exactly the books and reports you need. Mrs. Ivens is an amazing writer.
The next best thing about the book is all the tricks to get the software to do things exactly the way you need it to. If you're not a bookkeeper (and most small business owners aren't), some things aren't self-explanatory, such as how do I handle sales tax in more than one state. Not only does this book show you how to set up your books to handle these problems, but the writer walks you through the steps, explaining why you do it the way you do it.This is a bookkeeping education in addition to learning the ins and outs of Quickbooks.
Her writing is clear as crystal and very conversational, so it's a pleasure to read the book. My accountant loved the fact that she explained what QuickBooks is doing in the background with the General Ledger when you create transactions. He went out and bought himself a copy, and is now recommending it to all his clients.
This book, filled with great tricks to get more out of Quickbooks, is also a good basic primer on understanding bookkeeping. This is the only book you need if you're running a business with Quickbooks - you can throw away the books that came with the software.
