I needed this book for my course, checked on amazon and £12 cheaper than uni bookshop, clicked & purchased a new copy. Book arrived without any access code to my accounting lab (despite the book being written and making full reference to MAL) I had to purchase this separately from publishers for £25.
Not happy the book states it comes with code but when you scroll down the page on Amazon it states not with access code, so don't make the same costly mistake as me

Although the theory and application is great, I can't help but find myself slightly peeved at the emphasis on social responsibility and normative values - which frankly has no place in a book about a (reasonably) objective science. This slightly diluted the discussion. That being said, this book is highly applicable and accessible for all age groups.

Hi
Brought this as part of my MBA syllabus. This doesnt come with the myacountinglab.com access so suggest
future buyers to look other options. Had to buy separately the website access which will cost you GBP 25.00

Book is great and no other issues.

Happy Learning..!!
