From the Publisher
"... introduces the concepts of finances from an engineering standpoint, and attempts to clarify where the two areas fit together... written by an engineer for an engineer... unlike most books which attempt to bridge the gap the examples are not limited to one particular area"
Manufacturing Engineer

"It explains the way companies maintain cash flow and operate in financial terms, and goes on to outline the tools required to manage the finances of a company."
