In this text, Leslie Chadwick introduces us to the importance of accounting as a management tool. Intended as an introductory accounting text, the book is written in an accessible style - a key feature of which is the author's teaching by objectives approach which clearly sets out what the reader should know and be able to do. It includes step-by-step examples, question and answer sections, multiple-choice texts, lists of key works and self assessment exercises. It should be of use to undergraduate students, and also to managers on short-term executive programmes, one-semester and distance-learning courses.
