Outline Review

If you find most accounting guides as complex as accounting itself, you'll love this itty-bitty guide, full of practical techniques that show you how to analyze financial statements, interpret financial data, and measure business performance. On every page, clear text and illustrations cover each aspect of accounting principles and practices, while simple checklists enable you to calculate ratios, identify creative accounting, and make sound financial decisions. And throughout, accessible charts and diagrams explore different options for financial planning and forecasting. Granted, if you're looking for specific or in-depth guidance, you may find this book too general in its approach. But if you're looking for a thumbnail guide to the basics, it'll do just fine.

It's worth mentioning that the book is also part of reference publisher Dorling-Kindersley's Essential Managers series--20 itty-bitty books on business and career topics ranging from communication, leadership, and decision-making to the management of time, budgets, change, meetings, people, projects, and teams. Combining the For Dummies series' talent for breaking down a lot of information into bite-sized bits and sidebars with Dorling-Kindersley's signature, crisp graphics on a gleaming white backdrop, they don't represent the cutting edge of business thinking and they don't necessarily reflect any unique individual perspective.

Instead, it's as though someone collated the best general thinking on these 20 topics and rolled them out into 72 brightly designed and easy-to-read pages, studded along the way with boxed tips, color shots of a multiracial cast of "coworkers" animatedly hashing through the workplace issues of the day, and a self-test of one's skills in the topic at hand on the last few pages of each volume. Again, they're not for anyone looking for in-depth or focused help on any of the subjects they cover, but they're perfect as a quickie general-interest reference... and let's face it, they're so cute, and look so smart in a neat little stack or row, that you'll probably want to buy a whole bunch to give to your entire department or staff. --Timothy Murphy

It's really not that good, but it was worth my time reading it  Aug 6, 2007
This is one of those books I bought in the airport. I'd probably buy it again at an airport, but I wouldn't buy it on a place like this site, where there's a better selection of basic accounting books.

All I wanted was a quick overview of different accounting concepts, and it did give me that.

But, it's really not a very good book. It's very choppy, and I asked a real accountant about a few terms they used in the book, and he said, "I've never heard that term before."

The pictures and illustrations are sometimes unintentionally funny.
If you read only one book on accounting....make it another one  Dec 19, 2006
I write as the manager of a small business who hoped to learn something useful about the money side. Yes, the book is encouragingly small, brightly colored, and beautifully laid out in the usual user-friendly Dorling Kindersley way. Unfortunately, for me, this is where the positive aspect ends. The basics at the beginning of the book were fine - Who Uses Accounts, Defining Key Concepts, and Understanding a Profit and Loss Account. This took me to page 21 (of 69). When I got to balance sheets and cash flow, the information was tightly packed, but I think I just about understood current and fixed assets, and most of what was written about liabilities. As soon as I got to cash flow, the information overload was becoming too much. I was understanding the overall concepts, but there was too much information for the number of words on the page. The detail became too much to absorb. The following sections cover numerous topics in overview - concepts are introduced but there is nothing here to make the information stick.

After reading this, I've come to think that an introduction to accounts needs to present the information much less densely and have plenty of examples and exercises, as well as review. After all, the reason to read a book like this is not because one loves the idea of accounting per se. It is to get something useful or applicable out of it. The back cover blurb says the book will "show you how to", "enable you to", and so on. I don't think the book fulfills this promise. I began this book with a hazy knowledge of accounts. I leave it with hazy knowledge of accounts. DK, I love the design of your books, but more thought needs to be put into the content of this one.
