    Book Description
    Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) are used as the basis for financial reporting. The original GAAP documents span thousands of pages, and so are difficult to research. The GAAP Guidebook solves this problem by condensing the key elements of GAAP into a single volume. This book describes each accounting topic, how accounting information is to be disclosed, and where to look in the GAAP source documents for additional information. The text contains hundreds of practical examples that show how to apply GAAP to real-world situations, as well as sample journal entries and usage tips. [547 pages]
