It's amazing book in terms of accounting fundamentals and highly recommended for beginners. Besides, I noticed that all the discussions and examples are U.S. based accounting rules which sometimes are different form what are being practiced in Canada and Internationally. Apart of that, It's really helpful and easy book to read and learn.
