"The Manager’s Guide to Financial Statement Analysis opens the door for both financial and nonfinancial managers to develop a framework for understanding a company’s true financial performance. The Manager’s Guide goes the extra step by providing the reader with the skills necessary to communicate the impact of a firm’s financial measures in a nontraditional, easy-to-understand manner. It is this combination of understanding and effective communication that allows the manager to then improve a firm through the use of financial information."Christopher D. Flick, Investment Manager, The Vanguard Group

Glusman, Chief Engineer, Comanche Helicopter Program, Boeing Rotorcraft Program Management Center

In our current business environment people must uderstand financial terms and be able to communicate them in a quantitative and qualitative manner. So why is it that the principles of finance and strategy are understood by few ? Perhaps it is because current finance texts overlook the need for comprehensive financial understanding. Alternatively, 'The Manager's Guide to Fianancial Statement and Analysis', by Dr. Barsky and Dr. Jablonsky, has created a financial guide that enables all to understand finance. This Guide discusses strategies for growth and provides tools for uncovering an organization's strategy for growth. The text discusses margin management, asset management, return on assets and financial management through the strategic profit model. It is rare when you find a book that discusses not only the big picture of business but also provides tools for readily understanding the details to grasp the big picture. If you enjoy learning about business, 'The Manager's Guide to Fianancial Statement and Analysis' should be a core holding in your private library. The buy and hold strategy definately applies here.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
