Overview

Libby/Libby/Short wrote this text based on their belief that the subject of financial accounting is inherently interesting, but financial accounting textbooks are often not. They believe most financial accounting textbooks fail to demonstrate that accounting is an exciting field of study and one that is important to future careers in business. When writing this text, they considered career relevance as their guide when selecting material, and the need to engage the student as their guide to style, pedagogy, and design. Libby/Libby/Short is the only financial accounting text to successfully implement a real-world, single focus company approach in every chapter. Students and instructors have responded very favorably to the use of focus companies and the real-world financial statements. The companies chosen are engaging and the decision-making focus shows the relevance of financial accounting regardless of whether or not the student has chosen to major in accounting.

Good book for basics

This is a good beginner's book as it provides the basics you need to introduce yourself to the subject. I needed it for a class but it can serve as a good reference guide as well.

Exactly as described and shipped quickly!

This was the exact book i need a great price and was shipped incredibly quickly!

Financial accounting

Don't buy this book as a self-study guide to financial accounting. It is an excellent textbook for a course or, if you have already studied bookkeeping, it is the perfect book to show you how financial accounting information is useful for managerial and investment decisions. The real world emphasis provides a great context. The authors have struck a good balance between acccounting processes and the use of accounting information.The book is a good choice for an accounting course or the perfect next step for self-study after bookeeping but you'll be unhappy with it if you looking for an overly simplistic approach to accounting.

A Great Asset

I used this book for an accounting course. Its very detailed and full of pertinent accounting information.I especially liked the NET TUTOR and CDROM Study Guide. It has helped me score an "A" in my course!

Lucid, intersting and easy to follow

I am an engineer running a small company. Last year I bought an accounting package to keep better track of my business. Though the software is great the accompaning manuals are of no use and their concise introduction to accounting did make matters worse.I have been looking at several accounting manuals but could not find one I could just sit down with and read on my own.Well now I have found it. This manual is easy to read, clear and to the point and the real company examples make it interesting. After reading only two chapter I realized that the information that came with the accounting software put me totally on the wrong track.I can recommend this book, manual very highly.
