Accounting Demystified: A Self Teaching Guide

By Leita A. Hart, CPA
Buy Now  » 
Editorial note: Buy this book if you like smiley faces, chapter-end quizzes and generous white space on every page to help you forget the tedium of learning accounting terms. This book is one of the few beginner books that acknowledge that accounting is not always a black and white number crunching exercise. Often business founders and their accounting advisors work in grey areas. They have to make important judgment calls that will influence a company's financial results (positive or negative), ability to raise capital down the road from lenders and investors, and ability to receive an 'unqualified opinion' from auditors. If you don't know what unqualified opinion means and you expect to borrow money from banks, it's time to do some reading!
