A practical and accessible guide to the numerical skills needed to excel in business,
this book is meant for all those who would want or need a basic understanding
of numbers and accounting, from balance sheets and profit and loss to working
capital and measures of performance. A must-read for any employee, manager,
freelancer or business owner.
