7 internautes sur 8 ont trouvé ce commentaire utile  Par Jean-Baptiste OUDAR sur 4 juin 2007
Format: Broché
This book is a welcome addition to a huge number of publications and exegesis on Sarbanes-Oxley and is a useful guide to its implementation.

However, forget about the word “dummies” in the title: the content is very serious and it is not because the choice of words and examples makes it easy to read that you should stay away! A number of finance executives will indeed find it of an easy access but yet comprehensive enough to check your own control environment.

I have also found this book very interesting as it is providing us with a good tool to explain other key executives and partners at various comities that SOX is not only a matter of technicalities but also a renewed opportunity to work hand in hand to better manage the growth of our structures and make it more sustainable. Happy reading !

The easiest way to learn about SOX 18 octobre 2006
Par Douglas J. Tucker - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The author has somehow found a way to make this incredibly arcane subject interesting and easy to digest. This book, unlike every other SOX book I have seen, is filled with practice tips, checklists and witty commentary and is written in a way that makes the statute and the SEC's rules easy to understand for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. It also provides other key sources of SOX information and is a pleasure to read. She should consider changing the title to "Sarbanes-Oxley for Lawyers, Executives and other Dummies who Don't Have the Time or Patience to Wade Through the Other Dry and Boring Books on the Subject". I highly recommend this book to lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

An Interesting Entry-Level Primer on SarBox 23 février 2006
Par Christopher Byrne - Publié sur
Format: Broché
For some people, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 represents pain and expense. For others it represents opportunity. For almost everybody, it represents confusion, misunderstanding and uncertainty. This statement goes for CEOs, CIOs, staff, and even the outside auditors. So how does one explain it in as straight forward and simply as possible? One place to start would be to hand them a copy of the Jill Gilbert Welytok's Sarbanes-Oxley for Dummies (2006, John Wiley and Sons, 384 Pages, ISBN 0471768464). While not perfect, the book will provide a quick and dirty overview of SarBox, its history, its historical context, what it requires, and more importantly, what it does not require.

The book starts out with the saga of SarBox. The author covers the political environment, loopholes that existed before the legislation, and how the legislation sought to close them. The author also attempts to debunk myths about SarBox. For this reader, the most important myth is that "internal control means data security". The author states up front and for all to hear that SarBox does not specify any specific data security requirements. This is something all auditors and auditees need to hear and accept.

Chapter 2 covers "SOX in 60 Seconds", or what a sales person might call the "elevator pitch". Essentially this is the who, what, where and why. From here, the author goes into more details about how SarBox fits into the context of other securities regulations and laws. An important part of this chapter (Chapter 3) is the discussion why private companies should and do care are about the legislation and rules. In Chapter 4, SarBox and how it ties into specific financial statements such as the income statement and balance sheet. For those unfamiliar with these statements, it is a good quick and dirt overview.

Part II of the book goes into more details about roles and responsibilities under SarBox. This starts out with the auditors, and then the discussion extends to the audit committee, the board of directors, management and employees. The most important point to take home from this section is that in order to play the game, you have to 'know the playbook'. The rules of the game have changed and everyone needs to know the roles and responsibilities.

Part III of the book goes into a detailed overview of controls and audits. An important aspect of this is clearing up confusion about how the definition of controls is distinct in Sections 302 and 404. From here, the author covers what is covered under a 404 audit, how not to live in fear of it, and how it can be leveraged for success.

Part IV of the book, "Software for SOX Techies", is the weakest part of the book for this reader. The author does give some tips about specific tools. However, the tools selected are very narrow in scope. The discussion seems to miss the important point that organizations should look to build a "compliance oriented architecture" as opposed to buying silo-based solutions.

The remaining parts of the book cover the SarBox horizon, the potential legal repercussions (including discussions about who can and cannot file lawsuits and when they can be filed), the impact of SarBox on outsourcing, and more. Finally, the book goes into "rules of tens", such as 10 ways to avoid prosecution, 10 tips for an effective audit committee, and more.

As I said earlier, the book provides a good quick and dirty overview. It falls short in its discussion of software tools. The other thing that I did not like was the inclusion of the full text of the Act as an appendix. No, not the fact that they included it, but the fact that the text was entirely too small to be read. At that point, they should have just left it out.

Who Should Read This Book?

This book should be read by anybody who has an interest in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and its implications but does not want to get into too much detail. There are better titles for CEOs and CFOs who want a detailed discussion. But for the quick and dirty, it is a good first read on the topic.

I am a CPA that has been doing ERP and tax related work. I accepted a position for a corporate client doing SOX compliance. The book gave a great overview on the SOX issue. I recommend this book if you are needing to familiarize yourself with SOX.

The dummies title is deceptive. 26 février 2006
Par Tracey Warad, CFO - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is actually a pretty sophisticated reference book. I was surprised to see a Sarbanes-Oxley Dummies book, and ended up taking a look at it more out of curiousity than anything. It turned out to be just what I needed to get a better understanding in this area, as the CFO of a company that is about to be acquired and will soon have to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley. I bought a number of books on the subject and this is surprisingly the most useful reference. I think it also great that the author, an attorney and CPA, put her contact information in the book in case readers have questions and she is starting a special update website and forum for Sarbanes-Oxley professionals. I do wish the book reviewed more products and hope the the author posts information on her Website about SOX products that are available and other professionals take time to do the same.

Finding Even a Bit of Humor in SOX 6 juillet 2006
Par John Matlock - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Sarbanes-Oxley (usually called SOX) was a congressional response to a bunch of big time business failures such as Enron. The law was rather rushed through to wide bi-partisan support. In their rush, Congress passed a pretty general law almost an outline, leaving the details to be defined by the Securities and exchange Commission (SEC). As with a lot of such laws, we have:

1. What it appears that Congress intended.

2. What the SEC has issued.

3. What the courts have subsequently ruled.

This book presents the whole story of SOX from a high overhead view, and it does so in a surprisingly entertaining way for what is basically an accounting book. The author seems to have not only a theoretical understanding of SOX but presents a view of 'Here's the rules, then here's the real rules, then this is what the future rules might look like.'

All in all, SOX is the biggest change in the accounting rules in decades. While it was intended for big public companies it has become the standard by which even small private companies are held. The cost of compliance is huge, and may make a big change in the overall ability of new companies to get started.

SOX also reaches down to the employee level, even in some cases to quite low level employees.

This is the best book I've seen on trying to make sense out of SOX and all its implications.
