The book benefits from a concise approach to the subject, only covering material that the busy manager or executive will need to know; the emphasis is on interpretation and analysis rather than a detailed understanding of finance or accounting sufficiently challenging the reader without being too technical. The text includes excellent pedagogy, namely: learning objectives; self-assessment questions with solutions; step-by-step examples; chapter summaries and numerous diagrams, charts and tables; and real-world case studies with outline and solutions that should help students apply what they learn to the real world of business.
