From the Back Cover:


'Trust me - no other book makes the subject as simple and clear. '

Jamie Reeve, Chairman, The Great Little Trading Company


Accounting principles are actually very simple: it’s the rules and terms to describe them that make it all so difficult. But once you’ve mastered the basics, what seemed so complicated before will become logical and even easy.


Accounts Demystified shows you how. In twelve simple sessions, designed as practical tutorials with worked examples, you’ll be taken right through the basics of accounting – balance sheets, profit and loss accounts, cash flow statements – to more sophisticated analysis and review. By the final session you’ll be fully equipped to tackle even the trickier aspects of accounting with new-found confidence.


Fully updated and now with an accompanying website, this bestselling book is for anyone who wants to be able to understand, digest and talk about numbers, quickly and easily.
