This is a textbook, it does not get into the details of authoritative literature, but it does explain the concepts. I bought it to get a better grasp on pension disclosures, so I have not read the whole book. But I like what I have read and have used it to gain a better understanding. The glossary in the back should be very helpful to students or new employees who do not have government accounting experience. An idea for the next edition might be a case study on a GASB. Focus on how to implement it and/or how to audit for compliance with it.
