Complete Idiot's Guide To Finance And Accounting by Michael Muckian
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Finance and Accounting helps you create a budget, manage a payroll, and develop a financial management--from the perspective of a nonfinancial manager.
The guide is well constructed and facilitates easy scanning of any topic that is currently driving you to distraction. Chapters 7, 8, and 9 (on accounts receivable, accounts payable, and general cash-flow issues, respectively) are particularly worth a careful read. Pay special attention to the shortcuts and red flags that are highlighted in small boxes; in many instances, they can save your company big headaches.
