The fourth edition of Financial Accounting: teaches accounting from both the preparer and user perspective.To lead students to a full understanding of the impact of financial statements on business decision-making, the authors use the financial statements from Winnebago Industries throughout the chapter and end of chapter material. Porter/Norton is unique in that it also uses a competiting company to Winnebago, Monaco Coach,to do comparative financial analysis; this is reflected throughout the text and in end of chapter problems.
