This book consists mainly of definitions with very little explanatory prose. As such, it is not very useful for didactic purposes and would only be of questionable value as a reference book.
Most chapters are a few pages long and are accompanied with extensive, needlessly wordy introductions. For example, a subheading may say "Distinctions Among Fixed, Variable, and Semivariable Costs". The next paragraph reads, "This chapter emphasizes the distinctions among fixed, variable, and semivariable costs because this knowledge is a basic working tool in financial management. The manager needs to know the difference between fixed and variable costs to compute contribution margins and break-even points. The manager also needs to know about semivariable costs to make good decisions about how to treat these costs." As you can see, this text is not really explanatory and simply repeats over and over again the importance of the material it purports to teach.
Explanatory figures sometimes include arrows and boxes connecting different parts of a diagram. These were assembled without care and several figures have multiple arrows drawn so closely together that it is impossible to follow them from their head to tail. Instead, they merely serve to clutter the already low-yield figure.
I could not advise anyone to purchase this book.
