Bookkeeping Basics" is not a textbook. It's a plain and simple explanation of how basic accounting works and what it is to "keep the books," so that you can do it for yourself, your company, or any other business.
While accounting programs have solved the problems inherent in manual bookkeeping and made it far easier and faster, they have created a different kind of problem. Just how much accounting are you required to know? Some programs need users to know some accounting in order to use them. Other programs require little or no bookkeeping skill but confine users to simple entries provided by the program while keeping them isolated far from the double entry functions going on in the background.
With "Basics" you need not be excluded from using any accounting program, nor become captive to another. Written by a career bookkeeper, "Basics" makes bookkeeping easy to understand, simple and easy to do.
