Whether you′re a manager attempting to get a clear picture of your company′s performance, an investor trying to determine if a business is a sound investment, or a lender who needs to measure an organization′s creditworthiness, the information contained in a financial report is the most valuable source of information at your disposal.

Like its predecessors, this eighth edition steers you painlessly through the basic accounting concepts and provides line–by–line explanations of a financial statement. It shows you how the three parts of a financial report the balance sheet, the income statement, and the cash flow statement fit together and the story they tell.

How to Read a Financial Report is your plain–English guide to sorting out what all those numbers are really saying.
