    VERY INFORMATIVE & USEFUL BOOK

    It has really been tried to explain the complexities of Balance sheet with a much simpler language. I am very much thankful to the author who cleared much of my doubts in balance sheet which wouldn't have been possible so easily without running post to pillar.

    Review

    64 pages are useful....very basic concepts.Go for it if u haven't studied elementary finance like broad classification of assets,liabilities and shareholder fund with 2 examples. Nicely written to clear the concepts in a lucid manner.

    Helpful and Easy!!!

    Its a good reference for reading a balance sheet. The language used is simple and easy to understand even for people from non finance or commerce background. Many examples are also provided in the book for easy understanding.
    The print quality is not that great.

    Recommended read!

    Perfectly Perfect

    I have never thought or found any simple explanation like this.
    If you worry what the hell is Balance Sheet - then a must read.
    I wish I had this book during my MBA - I would have understood what is balance sheet.

    Overly simplistic

    The book just scratches the surface of the subject and is overly simplistic. However, the book is written in very lucid style and keeps reader engaged.
    To get better knowledge on the subject you may need to read other books that provide more detail to the subject
