Since its release in 2006, Financial Intelligence has become a favorite among managers who need a guided tour through the numbers, helping them to understand not only what the numbers really mean but also why they matter. This new, completely updated edition brings the numbers up to date and continues to teach the basics of finance to managers who need to use financial data to drive their business. It also addresses issues that have become even more important in recent years, including questions around the financial crisis and those around broader financial and accounting literacy.
Accessible, jargon-free, and filled with entertaining stories of real companies, Financial Intelligence gives nonfinancial managers the confidence to understand the nuance beyond the numbers to help bring everyday work to a new level.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

"Nonfinancial managers will appreciate this nontechnical, in-depth guided tour through financial statements and financial concepts and analysis." (Choice Magazine)
As a broad basic overview it is excellent.
The profit and loss statement was my favourite, although the balance sheet came in a close second. Seriously though, why does Audible continually ask questions like this for non-fiction books??? I think they do it just to push my buttons. I mean I love Audible, but crap like asking non relevant questions for certain types of books should be an easy fix.
There is an accompanying PDF, so even if you listen to the audio you can always refer to the PDF where required.
Seriously? Seriously???? Yup, when i read financial statements I always cry, unless of course they are the financial statements of our local or federal government, then I just laugh at the abuse.
I have a background in finance and bought this as a brief refresher. For that purpose it was a waste of time. If you do not have a background, or only have a brief exposure to finance/ accounting then this book is an excellent start. Happy listening.
"Great highlight. Need sample parts to follow audio for full value"
Great highlight. Need sample parts to follow audio for full value. A one page takeaway at end would be great
"Fantastic for investors"
I've read about 80 finance and investment books and this one is essential.
Up and down a solid offering
no, but I listened again a month later
Fantastic fundamental information. Any respectable investor will find great value in this book. A must own
now it all makes sense!
very important for the managers to understand the basics of finance to their functional effectiveness and in doing what is good for the company.
"Articulate and insightful guide to finance KPIs"
Excellent overview of key financial measures to assess the health of a business.
For business people who are not particularly financially intelligent it helps de-mistify the important financial considerations necessary to communicate effectively with the accountants.
Polished delivery and performance.
