Friedlan Financial Accounting offers a user-oriented, critical approach to introductory financial accounting. It encourages students to question the choices made in the preparation of financial statements and view accounting data with a critical eye. The focus is on understanding the story that financial statements convey to stakeholders while addressing the limitations, controversies, and problems with accounting and accounting information. This critical approach ensures students become highly proficient users of financial accounting information, while still providing the necessary understanding of the preparation of these statements. Real world financial statements and the integration of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), balanced with discussion of Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) when it is important to note key differences, make Friedlan the most current financial accounting text available for both undergraduate and MBA programs.
