I bought both Stuart Warner s previous books and had no hesitation in getting hold of The Finance Book as a complement to his Finance Made Easy and also his 25 Financial Ratios Stuart Warner has an unusual knack of making the language and techniques of financial management accessible to all levels of management There are so many finance and accounting books in the market that fail to do so This book stands apart from the rest the topics covered in this book are easy to follow, are right up to date and greatly enhance understanding The Finance Book really should be a required read for anyone who needs to brush up on commercial financial management or would benefit from a practical and interesting introduction to this key topic. Very digestible It s assisted me greatly in a new role at work I love the format must know, good to know, where to see each example in action etc I would by another copy should this one ever go walkabout.
