Doody 5 Star Review

“The book is easy to read and well written, and it is an excellent compilation of information on budgeting. The examples and case studies are current and easy to follow. The topics are not too detailed, but offer good examples of what new managers will see and need to prepare for the task of budgeting. This is a difficult area for many managers and the authors break it down into a very manageable task.”
