"Fantastic Learning Tool...Don't let this book title fool you. It is not an oversimplification of accounting and financial principles. It is, however, a serious and very effective examination of a very small but progressively complex business. There are not many books available on the market that make a complex and dry subject understandable and even fun. This book successfully does just that." -Amazon Reviewer The Clearest Explanation Ever of the Key Accounting Basics The world of accounting can be intimidating.

Using the world of a child's lemonade stand to teach the basics of managing your finances, this book makes a dry subject fun and understandable. As you run your stand, you'll begin to understand and apply financial terms and concepts like assets, liabilities, earnings, inventory and notes payable, plus: —Interactive format gives you hands-on experience —Color-coded charts and worksheets help you remember key terms —Step-by-step process takes you from novice to expert with ease —Fun story format speeds retention of essential concepts —Designed to apply what you learn to the real world The revolutionary approach of The Accounting Game takes the difficult subjects of accounting andbusiness finance and makes them something you can easily learn, understand, remember and use!
