I read the review for this in "The 100 Best Business Books of All Time" by Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten (posted in an earlier blog entry).
This easy to read book takes the fundamentals of business and conveys the concepts in simple and clear words. Explains the difference in balance sheets and income statements and much, much more. Gives practical advice on how to deal with business expenses over the long run rather than not knowing how to deal with them or improperly dealing with them in the short run. This book can be great for learning the basics of accounting and how to run a business. Lots of great advice is shared in this relatively short book.
