Accounting Game 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 26 reviews.

This is a short book for learning accounting fast. It gets right to the point and is a good reference book. It shows you the basics. To go deeper into accounting I recommend Financial Statement Analysis and Security Valuation by Penman which is also a great book.

This book is fantastic however the illustrations are horrible on the nook! You can not make out the charts that are presented because they are blurry and unreadable. If this was fixed it would be a 5 star.

I got this book not to learn accounting but as an Instructional Designer to experience the use of simple metaphors for teaching/learning. Topics like accounting that can get little complicated was made interesting and fun to learn using simple ,known idea of lemonade stand.

I recommend purchasing this book for all those who are considering to learn accounting and want it to be practical at the same time without having to mug up concepts. It uses lemonade business daily operations to exhibit to the reader how accounting really works, and what can you expect in your work life when you turn an accountant. I leanred alot.

If you have ever wondered where to get a solid information about accounting which would help you build a solid foundation - your search has stopped here! The illustration this books offers is very simple yet profound and aids you in understanding how the langauge of business works. I very much recommend it.

Before I read this book I didn't know a thing about accounting or record keeping. I had read a few other books on accounting but never managed to get past chapter 1! But 'The Accounting Game' is different. It uses a practical scenario to take you through the world of finance, which many people fear (my head use to spin). It teaches you the concepts, not just the boring details. I highly-highly recommend it for all.
