I've read three books on this subject - Silberger's 10 Day MBA, Finance on a Beermat and this one. Initially I thought it was overly wordy, but after persisting I realised how valuable it is. It is the best of the three I cite. It clearly guides you through all the key concepts, reiterating and reinforcing information as the book progresses, plus using representative examples, particularly for three accounting reports. It is a well thumbed tome for me now. To give you an example of how much it has helped, I went to see my accountant recently to discuss setting up a new business, her comment was 'you really seem to know your stuff, if you talk to investors like that you'll be in a good position to inspire their confidence and get their cash'

.... probably dont mix too well. I'm OK at maths but the concept of accountancy was a bit of a mystery to me until I read this book. It has helped me understand the basics of accounting. That was in fairness all I wanted it to do, so I deem it a success as a book. For people that just want a basic level of understanding this is a good buy.

As with most "DUMMIES" books, this one gives you a good overview of the topic and a basic level of understanding of the subject. Recommended.

Colleagues had handed me books on accounting before, which I failed to get to grips with. I have always struggled with getting to grips with the numerical side of what I do for a living. REcently, however, I found myself having no choice to get better at it. Frankly I was desperate and while I'm not the kind of person who thinks of myself as a 'dummy', I hoped that this book would be a miracle pill. Thankfully, it has been really good. The authors clearly lay out the principles and pack the book with simple answers. I also enjoyed the fact that there are plenty of tips rather than a mass of prose (which is what the other books I'd seen before were like). Great effort: someone should give these authors a medal!

I downloaded this to iPad version of Kindle. The text is good an informative, and I would agree with other positive reviews on that.

However, the examples do not appear. Equations and balance sheet calculations are referenced in the text, but there is no sign of them on the screen, making it fairly useless as a learning exercise....

UPDATE - Amazon have removed the Kindle version from the store until this is sorted. I have now downloaded from iBooks and it is great.

Understanding Business Accounting

I bought this for my daughter who is doing business A level. Everything you need to know is here in an easy to read and understand format. My daughter uses it all the time and keeps saying things like 'this book is great' and 'I don't know what I would have done without this book' Her grades in assignemnts are all A's but she does put the time in to get them. A very useful book for students of buiness.

I have used other books by Colin Barrow et al and they have always been well written and covered the subject matter well. I have great respect for the Dummies series as a whole being a lecturer myself.

In summary a very useful business book which is well written and all the terms are explained with examples, buy with confidence.
