5Finance for Non-financial Managers Review
By tim rusch
Mr. Siciliano does a great job of explaining very complicated and sometimes dry subject matter in a understandable and easy way. Dare I say he even makes it fun, with his sense of humor too. For example, he uses a hypothetical example throughout the book called the Wonder Widget Company. You might know that the balance sheet contains both assets and liabilities? But at the bottom of the assets is a catchall category called, "cleverly", Other Assets! In another section, in Chapter 12, The Annual Budget, he titled "Tools for Telling the Future: Budgets, Forecasts, Projections, and Tea Leaves"! Of course this is serious subject matter, but Gene Siciliano writes with a flair and whether this is required reading for class or you are looking for an edge in understanding accounting reports, I would highly recommend this book.

5Good book - gives good reminder on basic finance
By arno
Interesting book.. for the price it is a good to have! It gave me some reminders on basic finance / accounting.. I work in a financial related field but not as a financial expert so it was a good way to understand some basic principle. Very nice. For the price, you can't really go wrong.

4Great Educational Book
By Le Kevin Smith
This book has been very informative, I would recommend it for anyone how wants a good understanding the how and why of finance. If you are looking for detailed accounting and higher levels of accounting techniques this is NOT the book for you.
