Product Description: "Jablonsky and Barsky have finally revealed the 'secrets' locked within those scary looking financial reports. Their innovative models proved to be a quick and relatively easy method of realizing financial information that every manager should know, and how to turn this into a plan of action." --Charles Deierlein Manager, Electric Engineering/Quality Assurance Con Edison.

"The Manager's Guide to Financial Statement Analysis provides a comprehensive guide to understanding the language of financial information. Thus, it provides the manager with the practical tools necessary for effective communication in today's business forum." --Thomas A. Roskoski Director, Financial Reengineering Merck & Co., Inc.

"It remains an enduring truth that members of the management team need an understanding of the financial statements and the expectations of the capital markets in order to develop and implement their firm's business strategy. The Manager's Guide to Financial Statement Analysis is an excellent resource for managers who wish to acquire or strengthen their knowledge of financial matters so they can contribute more value to the management team." --J. James Lewis Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Financial Executives Research Foundation, Inc.

Every day managers are flooded with financial information from an overwhelming number of sources--company reports, the financial press, and the World Wide Web. While the language of financial statements may sound like a foreign tongue to you, you know you can't ignore it.

To understand how to use financial information to improve the performance of your company, you need a resource that emphasizes how financial statements can be used to support meaningful management communications. The Manager's Guide to Financial Statement Analysis is the only book on this subject that puts technical issues on the side and focuses on what you need to know to be an effective participant in business communications. This book presents a framework that helps managers see how business strategy is linked to shareholder accountability through the firm's financial statements, without getting caught in the trap of explaining how financial statements are prepared according to technical accounting rules and regulations. The emphasis of this book is on how you, as a manager, can use financial information to improve the performance of your firm, rather than simply learning how to keep score!

Using financial data from Wal-Mart, Inc. for a ten-year period and case studies of other high-profile firms, this book presents business strategy models that demonstrate how financial information can be used to tell a story about a company's business operations. The Manager's Guide to Financial Statement Analysis is written in a language you can understand --the language of business as spoken by managers, not accountants or financial analysts. This book will give you the tools you need to unleash the full communication potential of your company's financial information, make you a better manager, and make your company more competitive.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
