I've tried several times to use QuickBooks for my restaurant, but could never get it setup to do what I wanted it to do. I have had QuickBooks for several years and was giving it one last try! I was looking on the Internet for information on General Ledger account numbers for restaurants because the ones in QuickBooks just don t work, and I found your book. After reading it I knew it was what I had been looking for. It is written so that we can understand, and it answers all those questions I had on using QuickBooks in the restaurant industry. I now have one less thing to turn gray over. Running a restaurant is a life style, and this guide just made our life a little easier THANK YOU! --John and Kathi Leeds, CM Tuggs Grub n Pub, Port Deposit, MD

I'd like to tell all you restaurant folks out there that THIS BOOK SAVED MY SANITY!!! Not to mention my business. I was so lost trying to figure out how to apply general business procedures to our industry. I looked and looked, and finally, after much frustration and angst, I came upon your book. Just hearing Tips, Comps, Coupons, etc. made me start to think there was hope. The first time I opened the book I damn near cried. I wanted to call up every accountant this side of the Mississippi and scream... See, I'm not stupid, you just don't get it. So John, for writing this book, and not without some wonderful humor, I might add, I thank you. For actually answering my emails (even when they were probably impossible to understand), I thank you. For giving my husband a ray of hope that I might someday return to normal, I thank you. --Maggie Leach. Denver Colorado
