HOW THIS BOOK IS DIFFERENT AND DELIVERS RESULTS
The Joy of Accounting uses a revolutionary system of teaching that’s getting rave reviews at top universities, banks, law firms and business schools.
This is what Harvard Business School had to say:
"[The system] has the advantage of showing how accounting works visually. We all tend to see problems and relationships more easily visually, so the [Joy of Accounting] approach takes advantage of how we learn most effectively. As such, I believe that it is of value to anyone who is interested in understanding how accounting works (from high school students to undergrads to MBAs to business executives)." – Paul Healy, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
Other books teach the fundamentals of finance and accounting using jargon and vague language. They don’t use graphics and skip over concepts they assume you know.
What makes The Joy of Accounting truly different to other accounting books is a diagram which shows accounting on a single page. Using color-coding, the game-changing Color Accounting BaSIS Framework makes accounting as easy as pointing a finger.
Accounting made easy:
By observing thousands of learners in cities around the world, from New York, London and LA to Sydney and 30 countries, the authors identified 3 aspects of learning that, when addressed guarantee you’ll “get” accounting.
Hands-on and visual learning:
The book is fun and rigorous at the same time. With available props for purchase, the process is like an accounting game and simple to follow.
Is it truly revolutionary?
Yes, the Color Accounting BaSIS Framework™ does for accounting what the mouse and icons did for computers. When Apple introduced the Macintosh, using a computer became as simple as pointing, and everyone could do it.
The Joy of Accounting means that ANYONE can now see how accounting works.
