"A really fresh and friendly approach to supporting learning about accounting and finance. Clearly written, logically presented and well-explained material in a style that also manages to make the subject accessible and interesting." - John Cousins, Director, The Food and Beverage Training Company "Although this book deals with a subject that normally many readers would avoid, it provides a user-friendly approach to handling accounts and money. Real life examples are used accompanied by a range of exercises and activities. The book is useful in that it recognises the need for Hospitality Managers to work in an increasingly competitive market and be 'finance savvy'. Guide to Money Matters provides a useful guide and training material in an area, which currently is not always covered in-depth in other management resources. It is aimed mainly at managers or supervisors but with its well structured format it can be used by any reader within the hospitality industry. A useful list for further reading and a detail index make this book a good resource of information on money issues. An "accounting" book that makes sense." - HCIMA's 'Hospitality' journal
