Title: Accounting for Non-Accountants
Author: David Horner
What’s It About: Cross stitching. . .no it’s about accounting of course. It is a breakdown of accounting principles supposedly written in such a way as to be accessible to those of us who aren’t accountants. I say supposedly because I’ve been exposed to accounting principles via my degree program and I still found this book confusing.
Why Did I Read It?: Professional development. In my current IT capacity I do a lot of reporting for our accounts payable and accounts receivable departments. I was looking for a way to brush up on some concepts to aid in writing those reports.
Favorite idea: The elegant mechanics behind all of the rules allows for a system that self checks for errors. Its pretty ingenious at its core.
