Rave Reviews for the First Edition...
"Total Business Budgeting is aptly titled. Everyone concerned about budgeting and how to implement or improve the process should have this volume on hand. Rachlin?s liberal use of helpful forms is particularly clever." ?Michael W. Curran President and CEO Decision Sciences Corporation, St. Louis, Missouri

"Total Business Budgeting is well thought out and comprehensive. It simplifies the budgeting process by providing the content in an easy-to-read format. This is the only budgeting book I will ever need." ?Thomas Farrell Director of Business Development, Ernst & Young LLP

"Total Business Budgeting goes beyond presenting a set of basic budgeting guidelines and applications?along with helpful exhibits and forms?for all segments of business operations. A valuable compendium of underlying techniques associated with each business segment is also included in brief, easy-to-read format. Rachlin?s book provides a guide for budgeting and a take-off point for more specialization and more complex situations." ?Serge L. Wind Portfolio Analysis and Special Projects Finance Director Lucent Technologies, Inc.
