Financial Statements: A Step-by-Step Guide to Understanding and Creating Financial Reports

Now the best-selling book of its kind has gotten even better. Over 175,000 copies in print.


This revised and expanded second edition of Ittelson's masterwork will give you that firm grasp of “the numbers” necessary for business success. Financial Statements is a perfect introduction to financial accounting for non-financial managers, stock-market investors, undergraduate business and MBA students, lawyers, lenders, entrepreneurs, and more.

Most introductory finance and accounting books fail either because they are written “by accountants for accountants” or the authors dumb down the concepts until they are virtually useless. Financial Statements deftly shows that all this accounting and financial-reporting stuff is not rocket science and that you can understand it!

Ittelson empowers non-financial managers by clearly and simply demonstrating how the balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement work together to offer a snapshot of any company's financial health.
