    There is a good side and a bad side

    Here's the good about the book: I used the book for my EMBA class. I have a BS in Accounting, so I found the book easy to understand. It was very good examples using real world examples of Accounting problems. Would recommend it. Here's the bad - several of my fellow students found mistakes in the computations, which really confused me and classmastes and soured my opinion of the book. Imagine that accounting textbook with computation mistakes.
