    Highly recommend

    Required to read this book for graduate level accounting course. Is very easy to read and understand. Written by practitioners out in the field. Has lots of great background and discussion on events of the last decade, and the material is presented so that even someone not as financially sophisticated can understand and learn about what transpired. Have learned a lot from this book!
