Quatrième de couverture
As a manager, finance and accounting may not be an official part of your job description. But chances are, it’s the most important thing your executives and senior managers are thinking about. If you want to be in a prime position to take advantage of how corporate financial information applies directly to your own strategies and actions—and ensure that your department gets its share of the budget—you need to develop a thorough understanding of what your finance and accounting staffs do, why they do it, and what their reports really mean.
A classic resource for managers eager to master the concepts and simple math behind key business matters, The Essentials of Finance and Accounting for Nonfinancial Managers has been updated to reflect current changes in the economic and corporate financial landscape. Filled with crystal-clear examples, the book helps you understand:
• Balance sheets and income/cash flow statements
• Annual reports
• Fixed-cost and variable-cost issues
• Financial analysis, budgeting, and forecasting
• And much more
Containing critical regulatory information, including Sarbanes-Oxley, as well as strategies for managing cash flow in tough times, the second edition features new case studies and practice sessions and an expanded glossary with up-to-the-minute business concepts and terminology. You’ll also find fraud detection tools and financial tools to use with your marketing and sales strategies.
The book includes simple but powerful methods for analyzing the competition and thriving in a global marketplace—regardless of your company’s industry or size. Filling you in on commonly used terms and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this long-trusted book demystifies the role of accounting and finance in your organization, putting you in a better position to accomplish more and increase the bottom line.

I was first exposed to this book when I was in graduate school (that's a testimonial in itself). A few years later, I loaned it to my then-boss: a director of a multi-site program with the Vermont Department of Corrections. My boss was clueless about financial reports and this book proved invaluable. So valuable that I never got it back.
That's OK --this is a great primer for understanding business financial concepts and financial reporting.
So, when a business coaching client needed to get off the ground with regard to financial concepts this book was a natural choice. I purchased a copy for him so that I could tutor him on the concepts as part of our coaching collaboration. I was pleased to see that the text is available for the Kindle. Outstanding (even though the pages in the Kindle edition don't synch with the paperback edition -- tough to follow along with each other -- but that's a Kindle issue and not an issue about the text itself).
I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to get a better handle on business financial reporting, business financial analysis. It is a short text. It is a dense text. There are not many examples nor stories to illustrate the concepts. The technician-turned-business-owner may find that they are falling asleep at night if they read it in bed.
After you have read through this book a great follow up is Financial Statement Analysis: A Practitioner's Guide (Wiley Finance) along with the Financial Statement Analysis Workbook: Step-by-Step Exercises and Tests to Help You Master Financial Statement Analysis (Wiley Finance) that you can get to supplement the text.
It fills in the missing component of Fields' text: application. You will get a lot of information from The Essentials of Finance and Accounting for Nonfinancial Managers -- but very little application. Now if there was a companion workbook for this text rife with examples and exercises to insure that the reader wouldn't just get a soon-to-forget information overload, then I would give the package 5 stars.
