Financial Accounting: The Impact on Decision Makers / Edition 2

The first edition of Porter/Norton was the most successful new entry into the financial accounting market in twenty years. This third edition holds true to the original vision of teaching the subject from both the preparer and user perspective, but with a revision focused on greater accessibility to the variety of students taught. Two annual reports (Gateway and Ben Jerry¦s) and an annual update program with price stability guarantee highlight the third edition package.
