Reviews for Management Accounting for Beginners

'A very clear, readable and concise introduction to accounting which would suit both students of the subject and also non-specialists who want to get a quick grasp of the territory.' - David Wornham, Principal Lecturer, The University of the West of England, UK 'This book explains concepts of management accounting and financial management, from the first principles, with a clear approach and with strong emphasis on the applications to financial managers, yet without lacking in academic rigour and depth. It is particularly suitable for those with limited financial and accounting expertise that through very well designed activities and examples will achieve an impressive level of knowledge and analysis in the subject.' - Vasco Vendrame, Senior Lecturer, The University of the West of England, UK 'A very welcome, concise and easy to read contribution to accounting literature that makes core accounting concepts understandable in a straightforward way.' - Michael Davies, Senior Lecturer, University of West of England, UK
