   Aggravated Me
It was very slow and, at times, repetitive, often speaking in a slow and deliberate manner reminiscent of a child learning how to read. It took me years to fully enjoy every single chapter before giving up reading. I found the pace of the book to be very fast. If you're patient and can tolerate the dumbing down, you can get a lot out of this book, Garton said. I'm not a big fan of watered-down examples, but this was too much. The worksheet in each chapter differs from the workbook in that it relies on information from earlier parts of the book. The book expects you to remember numbers details instead of refreshing the information from previous chapters.
   A good Book
The benefit of this book comes from being able to sit down for a week or so and work slowly and painstakingly through it. It wont make you into an accountant but it will definitely give you a better understanding of accounting practices. I would recommend it to anyone.
   Enjoyable read
This book is a light read, and makes a very dry subject fun to learn about, Easy to do, and enjoyable to read, too. It's a high level book, So don't worry. t expect any real depth, but it gets the basic concepts across easily and is therefore a good book for what it tries to do, it said.
   I wish every text book was written like this! Not only do the authors make it ...
I wish every book was written like this. Not only do the authors make it fun, but they break down accounting so that ANYONE can understand it.
   A Must Read
The seller was timely and the book is great. Opened it to glance at it starting scanning the beginning and could not put it down until I had finished the 1st chapter. Excited to get into the rest of the season, Tunick said. East to understand, fun to read, Raymond said.
   Easy Peasy
Basic accounting is so easy and I love that! Great book for beginners and I would recommend it to even teenagers to learn about the real world and making money. A great book.
   A very nice walk through of the basics of accounting
Good walk through the basics of accounting. I really liked how they started with the very basics and worked up step by step, said Janet Floyd, executive director of music for AOL Europe. Overall, I would recommend it to others.
   Almost good
I am in my second year of earning an associate's in accounting and I bought this book to supplement what we are learning in class. The second issue is that not all answers are listed in the back. The book broke down the terms that it is easy enough for a novice accountant.
   Helpful, if Not a Little Condescending
I did not pay attention to my accounting classes at all. Low B's and a lot of that was dumb luck, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Now that I'm going for a Bachelor, I figured I should work out how to do this stuff. The book is extremely helpful, Simon says. For example, capitalization versus expensing really confused me in school, but I now understand the difference and feel confident that I could go back and improve my grades in college, she said. It's nasty, but I have no problem with it being the way it treats you as a reader. The book reads like they're talking to you like you're a kid running a lemonade stand. If they were to ask, I understand that's the point, but I feel like they could ease off the childish rhetoric a bit when they're in the middle of a question. For me, the book was exceptional and incredibly helpful.
   Excellent book, though has a few printing mistakes
A real nice book, got through all of it, Morgenthau said. Learned some key concepts such as how to roll up the earnings from one week to the next from the balance sheet, learning that the net profit from the income statement always matches the earnings week to date on the balance sheet. Note that the total equity ownership for the book is $15, which is already printed. On page 173 for purchases on the income statement, I cannot find the number 4 for purchases on prior income statements. It appears to me that it should be the number 24 because of the way it was calculated, not 4. It's maddening trying to find the $4 when it's clearly not there. It must be another numerical error in the book. Even with a few numerical errors, it did a fine job with the basics, the compiler said. It would have been helpful to have a mention of debits and credits, but overall a good book, said Dr. Goin.
