I grant you permission to use my name and school. I have a few comments below that are not all inclusive, but are a start - if you want some more, let me know. I need to get back to my office to see the book, especially chapter 6 - I can address that chapter specifically if you think that is appropriate.
I want to say that I have used Kieso and Weygandt for 19 years and this book is a refreshing change , but I guess I am hesitant to put that down on paper. If someone wants to call me, I would be happy to discuss the book with them and let them know I have switched from Kieso and Weygandt.
Well-balanced approach to Intermediate Accounting topics and well written, easy to read for students, understandable.
I like the coverage on accounting for derivatives - it seems appropriate for Intermediate Accounting - good introduction to a complex topic. I think the authors have a fresh approach to many topics and I think they provide excellent coverage to a broad range of topics. I especially liked their coverage of lower of cost or market.
I like the organization of topics - statement of cash flow emphasis rather than the balance sheet emphasis. There is a nice treatment of international accounting topics - it is not just a marginal notation as in many textbooks, plus good examples with interesting real world illustrations.
