Financial Accounting provides a very accessible and easy-to-follow introduction to the subject. It is intended as a core textbook for students studying financial accounting for the first time: either those following an undergraduate degree in a business school, or non-business studies students studying a financial accounting course. This includes students on both accounting and non-accounting degrees and also MBA students. It provides a self-contained, introductory, one semester course covering the major aspects of financial accounting. The book is also designed so that students can progress to more advanced follow-up courses so is well suited as an introduction for mainstream accounting graduates or MBA students as a basic text. It should be particularly useful in reinforcing the fundamental theory and practice of introductory financial accounting.
Michael Jones is Professor of Financial Reporting and Director of the Financial Reporting and Business Communication Unit at the University of Bristol.
