Auditors are trained to investigate beyond appearances to determine the underlying facts―in other words, to look beneath the surface. The recent financial crisis has made this skill even more crucial to the business community. As a result of this recent crisis and of the financial statement accounting scandals that occurred at the turn of the century, understanding the auditor’s responsibility related to fraud, maintaining a clear perspective, probing for details, and understanding the big picture are indispensable to effective auditing. The author team of Louwers, Ramsay, Sinason, Strawser, and Thibodeau has dedicated years of experience in the auditing field to this new edition of Auditing & Assurance Services, supplying the necessary investigative tools for future auditors.
