    Good starting book for who does not have any finance background. Example and flow of the book is easy for reader to understand. After reading it, I have better understanding the actions my plant manager and director took before. Problem to point our for this book: 1. Examples in the book may not be suitable for all type of reader. 2. Chapter review questions were not enough to cover the knowledge. 3. There are still typo in the book in 3rd edition. 4.

    I have never been a number guy but recently I have been serious about learning more about finances . As the book says words are the language of love and numbers are the language of money. I've read, Trading Bases about sports and numbers, I read Moneyball and now, Finance for Nonfinancial managers. My takeaway is that once you know the formulas and rules of financial reports is not too complicated. You learn about budgets, income statements, and cash flow statements. The reasons I gave it only 4 I have never been a number guy but recently I have been serious about learning more about finances .

The reasons I gave it only 4 stars is because more examples of finances for non-business issues like buying a car, or doing a family budget, etc. and the other reason I didn't give it a 5 stars is I personally like summary chapters where you tie everything up and sometimes going further and break it down in a summary type of way. I recommend it for anybody who sleep walks through budget,meetings. I took the online test and if you pass and will get a certificate.

    The author does a good job of making a stale subject like Accounting interesting.

    A great introduction to finance for non-numbers people. Although you would definitely need to go back and make notes on some of this material. Canadian readers would benefit from realistic Canadian version of the figures. *By the way, not too boring as far as finance books go. The authors are even funny at times.

    It was boring (no shit), but taught me what all the basic accounting concepts like the matching principle, materiality, assets/liabilities/equity, etc means, and how to read balance sheets, and income statements. Tedious shit, but worth knowing.

    Easy to read book, cute examples, has little quizzes at the end of each chapter. Only for people (like me) who don't know anything about accounting and want to learn the basics

    Despite the topic, the author did a good job of keeping the information interesting. However, there were quite a few typos that made the information confusing at times.
