Not a technical book for the "numbers" person, but rather a practical guide to accounting and finance, which smoothed the way and made an enjoyable read of what I expected to be a tough assignment. See - although I've always been comfortable with numbers, they bore me!
No monotonous - tedious - drudgery - no Sir! Caplan's book nicely manages to ease the task and lighten the load. I had fully expected to become bogged down in a tedious chore - what a delightful read! Light, fast paced retelling of fame, fate, foibles and perhaps (infamy) - This is one book you simply have to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars useful information Jan. 8 2000
By A Customer
As a banker, I have seen hundreds of small companies struggle with financial information and many fail to get the credit they might otherwise deserve by not being able to present timely and credible information. This book helps even the smallest and least financially sophisticated to grasp the fundamentals of financial control and reporting. It is a must read for any company owner who does not have an in house financial person or uses a computer generated accounting system rather than having a close working relationship with a CPA. It is a rather unexciting area of business, but one that must be mastered if a business is to succeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars general accounting and finance book Feb. 28 2004
This book is more dictionary, than actual hands on. Also this book is geared to the small business owner (schedule C) or possbile S corp. I was looking for more corporate accounting (C Corp). What you learn is all the most popular accounts to set up. If you already have some basic and immed. knowledge, then this book is more a refresher to you. More likely, I would have my future employees read through it. This way they can understand the basics. Overall, not a bad book, though not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally someone who understands May 5 2004
By A Customer
I have been in business for the past ten years and have never truly understood or cared about keeping good records. The book breaks down accounting into real life experiences, finally something that I can understand.
It's a must read for all small business people and would recommend it to anyone considering going into business for themselves
