Business Accounting and Finance for Non Specialists is aimed at non-specialist students of accounting and finance on a first course in the subject. It gives a lively and wide-ranging survey of the basic principles of finance, financial accounting and management accounting. The unique approach taken in the first Section of the book is to look at small to medium sized business organisations and their role in the economy ? how they are set up, factors in their success and failure and how they source funds for expansion. This leads to discussion of the role of financial markets and their need for financial information. Sections 2 and 3 then give an account of financial and management accounting principles, respectively. The text is clearly written and technical jargon is minimal - any technical terms are clearly explained and a glossary of terms is provided. The book does not present the hurdle of double-entry bookkeeping at an early stage ? students can progress through the book without double-entry. Illustrative case studies and reference to real-life business examples are used to bring the technical information to life. Business Accounting and Finance for Non-specialists includes a large number of worked examples, to give students valuable practice in using their new skills. Other pedagogic elements include aims and learning outcomes, summaries, Case Studies with questions and solutions, individual learning activities, self-test questions with answers provided in the book, and exercises - the answers to which are divided between the book and the Lecturer?s Guide/Website.

Yvon Chouinard ist Unternehmer wider Willen. Eigentlich wollte er nur Klettern und Surfen – und trotzdem baute er ein Multimillionen-Dollar-Unternehmen auf. In seiner Jugend verbrachte er viel Zeit in der Natur und ließ sich von seinem Vater das Schmiedehandwerk beibringen. Als begeisterter Kletterer entwickelte und verkaufte er sein eigenes Equipment, dessen Design sich bis heute kaum verändert hat. Nach und nach erweiterte er die Palette seines Angebots, wobei er und seine Mitarbeiter keine besondere Strategie verfolgten: Jeder tat, was nötig war – und worauf er Lust hatte. Aus dieser Mentalität entstand im Lauf der Zeit das erfolgreiche Unternehmen Patagonia. In dieser neu überarbeiteten Auflage zum 10-jährigen Jubiläum der Originalausgabe zeigt Yvon Chouinard – legendärer Kletterer, Geschäftsmann, Umweltschützer und Gründer von Patagonia, Inc. – wie seine eigene Lebensphilosophie zum erfolgreichen Unternehmensleitbild wurde und was Patagonia zu einem der am meisten respektierten und umweltbewussten Unternehmen der Erde machte. Lass die Mitarbeiter surfen gehen ist ein Buch, das sowohl für Unternehmer als auch Outdoor-Enthusiasten gleichermaßen beeindruckend ist.
