The financial analysis perspective represented by this text is an analytical approach to international accounting. Instead of focusing on individual FASB's that constantly change, it teaches students the concepts behind the standards. The main strengths of this book are its plentiful end-of-chapter material and its use of focus countries to demonstrate accounting systems.
