The world of accounting can be intimidating. Whether you're a manager, business owner or aspiring entrepreneur, you've likely found yourself needing to know basic accounting . . . but baffled by complicated accounting books.

Using the world of a child's lemonade stand to teach the basics of managing your finances, this book makes a dry subject fun and understandable. As you run your stand, you'll begin to understand and apply financial terms and concepts like assets, liabilities, earnings, inventory and notes payable, plus:

--Interactive format gives you hands-on experience
--Color-coded charts and worksheets help you remember key terms
--Step-by-step process takes you from novice to expert with ease
--Fun story format speeds retention of essential concepts
--Designed to apply what you learn to the real world

    Gets to the point!

    This is a short book for learning accounting fast. It gets right to the point and is a good reference book. It shows you the basics. To go deeper into accounting I recommend Financial Statement Analysis and Security Valuation by Penman which is also a great book.

    Great book horrible nook book!

    This book is fantastic however the illustrations are horrible on the nook! You can not make out the charts that are presented because they are blurry and unreadable. If this was fixed it would be a 5 star.

    The Best Fundamental Accounting Book Ever

    Before I read this book I didn't know a thing about accounting or record keeping. I had read a few other books on accounting but never managed to get past chapter 1! But 'The Accounting Game' is different. It uses a practical scenario to take you through the world of finance, which many people fear (my head use to spin). It teaches you the concepts, not just the boring details. I highly-highly recommend it for all.
