Publisher: Thomson South-Western

Baldwin requires users to obtain and analyze live financial statements from publicly-traded firms. Accounting textbooks often use uncomplicated, make believe examples that isolate specific issues to illustrate a specific point. The result is that readers do not learn that real financial statements do not always appear as neat and tidy as those in textbook examples.
