Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Excellent if you don't have no exposure to finance"
    What did you like most about Financial Intelligence?

    As a broad basic overview it is excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Tom Zingarelli bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    There is an accompanying PDF, so even if you listen to the audio you can always refer to the PDF where required.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Articulate and insightful guide to finance KPIs"
    Where does Financial Intelligence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent overview of key financial measures to assess the health of a business.


    What other book might you compare Financial Intelligence to, and why?

    For business people who are not particularly financially intelligent it helps de-mistify the important financial considerations necessary to communicate effectively with the accountants.


    What about Tom Zingarelli’s performance did you like?

    Polished delivery and performance.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No
