    Book details

Global Financial Accounting and Reporting 3e provides a complete companion to financial accounting that takes management students with no previous knowledge of accounting from the mechanics of how financial records are structured through to being able to understand and analyze published consolidated financial statements.The aim is to place financial reporting in its business context and to make it clear to aspiring managers how accounting is an integral part of understanding an enterprise. To this end this book considers how the conceptual foundations of accounting translate into the financial statements of businesses.

The book is global in its approach. It uses International Financial Reporting Standards as its basis and so reflects the rules followed by nearly all European listed companies and by an ever-increasing number of firms worldwide.

Global Financial Accounting and Reporting is primarily aimed at future users of accounting information such as managers and analysts. It is therefore ideal for use at MBA level. It can also be used on financial accounting modules for business students at the undergraduate level.

Review Text

  • By Sania Ahmed on 20 November 2013

    The writing style is very heavy, the paragraphing is dense and it isn't user-friendly. I'm not very happy with this even though my lecturer recommended it - it's a bit hard to get into. I would prefer an easier to read book as I have no prior knowledge on this topic.

    The book is brand new, but by the time it got to me, it did have its corners a little bent and minor scratches on the front, but its cheaper than anywhere else and it has that new smell :))

    Great for a simpler explanation of topics that other books make too complicated especially for one who is a beginner. Using it for a graduate couse and it's perfect.
