The language of business. In order to understand how your business is performing right now and to evaluate, assess, and devise new strategies to boost future performance, you need information. Financial statements are a critical source of the information you need. In direct and simple terms, Richard A. Lambert, Miller-Sherrerd Professor of Accounting at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, demystifies financial statements and concepts and shows you how you can apply this information to make better business decisions for long-term profit.
You will learn to use and interpret financial data; find out what we can learn from Pepsi, Krispy Kreme, General Motors, and other companies; learn how to evaluate investment strategies; and apply your financial know-how to develop a coherent business strategy.
Gildan Media is proud to bring you another Wharton Digital Press Audiobook. These notable audiobooks contain the essential tools that can be applied to every facet of your career.

Informative but is prob best bought in hard copy

As a accountant in training I know most of the stuff in this book and it roughly follows the training syllabus. The only thing is that it offers examples which can be difficult to follow in audio format. I found myself zoning out in thought and missing the start of new chapters!

Clear, practical, tremendous value

This is one of my favorite audiobooks ever (and I've listened to hundreds). I took financial and managerial accounting classes a few years ago. This worked as a refresher and went beyond that into solid, basic finance topics, very effectively. The information is useful to me for personal finance decisions as well (such as, using discounted value of future cash flows in decision support). Rarely have I found so much useful information so well and so compactly delivered. I will listen to it many times. I hope for more content form this author.

Pleasantly Surprised

What made the experience of listening to Financial Literacy for Managers the most enjoyable?

Great information, enough detail to make it valuable, and not too involved to be cumbersome and boring.

Any additional comments?

I know I will have to listen to this audio book more than once to catch all the information. You need to download the PDF file so you can follow some of the figures, unless you are able to visualize the spoken figures and financial statements, which does require some concentration while you listen. This is definitely not a casual listen, but given the subject, I would not expect it to be.
