    IF you're in business and somehow have never in any form been exposed to basic financials, this is probably a decent book to consider. HOWEVER, anyone who has received even most basic business education should not expect any unique insight or new territory to be covered. It's written for easy consumption (which definitely has merit, given the subject matter), but failed to help me as the reader understand anything I didn't already grasp.

    This book is proof that it is possible to write a concise college textbook that gets the job done without up-charging students for bells and whistles that won't help them learn better. Solid coverage of financial statement analysis and calculating net present value of estimated future cash flows. More college textbooks need to be written and published this way.

    Not the worst book I have had to read as an assignment towards a MBA. The less than 200 pages and clear, concise writing makes for easier absorption. Even though the book lacks quantity, it does not lack quality in terms of the type of information provided. I have certainly read worse!

    This book was interesting and had a lot of useful information. I listened to it on audiobook, which is probably not the ideal way to delve into the information given the large quantity of financial reports included. Overall, a quick read with great info. Should have grabbed a paper copy.

    This had some really good information. The first half was great but the last chunk was a little rough, we probably could have cut that part out but the rest was very informative.

    This book focused on 3 areas: Balance Sheet, Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement. I knew listening to an Accounting Text on audio would be a challenge - They do have some of the pages of the book on PDF available for download. The narrator is excellent and the topic is definitely "dumbed down" for "accounting-phobes" but better visuals would definitely drive this home better. I think I will pull down on kindle and reread.

    For me, a very dry read. It was informative, though. I can appreciate a down-to-earth view on accounting. Though I knew what a balance sheet was, for example, I was not aware of the logic behind it (nor how to derive it without the help of a software such as Quickbooks). I am glad I read the book, though in all honesty I cannot say I enjoyed it.
