. . . a “must-buy” for any HR professional who has not worked directly in Finance. Beginning with the Business Case and ending with “the answers”, the book keeps us involved from beginning to end. Broadening your viewpoint and actually “getting it” when finances are discussed, will not only make your contributions, decisions, and communications better, but will make your job a lot more interesting. Keep it on hand as a reference or refresher.

Bravo, Clare! It's about time someone published an accounting book for the rest of us!

Do discussions about cash flow, balance sheets, gross margins, capital accounts, and operating expenses make your accounting-challenged brain quiver? Would you rather go to the dentist than to a meeting called by your CFO?

Just when you think you can't read another word about amortization, one of Clare's Shakespeare-like asides reels you in with her natural humor.
