Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster
Top to Bottom
In an interesting twist of fate, I took this book with me on an interstate bus ride with a maniacal bus driver. For me, it helped a sense of real danger to an already incredible book. As exhilarating as climbing Mount Everest can be, the tragedies that occur in this book read like a well written novel. However, the events chronicled here may not be for the weak of heart. It has been said ...
Essentials of Accounts Payable (Essentials Series)
Mary S. Schaeffer
Best Practices Book on Accounts Payable - Recommended
Essentials of Accounts Payable is a great resource. I'm a practicing CPA and I found it useful. Accounts payable is normally the first place a new accountant/bookkeeper is going to get a start within an accounting department. And this is in many ways an organization's first line of defense, so it's important to have the function well-covered. Essentials of Accounts Payable is filled with ...

If you manage large global accounts this book should be your bible. Mine is still drying ...
Shadow Account: A Novel
Conspiracy reaches high into the President's Administration.The President is in a tough reelection campaign. He's proposing radical populist tax reforms. Corrupt corporate executives and accountants are fabricating bogus earnings results. Conner Ashby, an investment banker is a plausible hero. This is a quite enjoyable, action packed page turner.
I liked it
the book is effectively a page-turner - I read it in 3 days. I only hope it's really fictional, for it paints Swiss bankers in a very black light!
Mama's Bank Account (Harvest/HBJ Book)
The Inspiration For 'I Remember Mama'
Since "I Remember Mama" is one of my favorite movies of all time, I had to check out this book. After all, this literature is what the movie is based on....and it's more good stuff. To be honest, I am more partial to the film, but this was still great reading. Like a more well-known classic, "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn," it bring you back to very early 20th century America. It's brings you to a ...

What are the historical forces that have shaped the modern banking system?

A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies
Bartolomé de las Casas
"A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies" is a powerful written protest against the Spanish treatment of the American Indians. Bartolome de las Casas, a Dominican friar, witnessed first-hand the colonization of the Americas by the Spaniards, and felt it his duty to document the atrocities. He dedicated "short account" to King Philip II, in the hope that once he was aware of the ...
First In: An Insider's Account of How the CIA Spearheaded the War on Terror in Afghanistan
Incredible account by someone who was there
If you're interested in the CIA or intelligence, "First In" is a great read that provides a wealth of information and detail by a CIA officer who was on the ground in Afghanistan shortly after 9/11. Gary Schroen's book does not deal with politics, so you get a raw, first-hand account of how the U.S. prepared for and invaded Afghanistan. The book is well-written and provides an interesting ...

The Battle of Mogadishu: Firsthand Accounts from the Men of Task Force Ranger
Great Book - Blackhawk Down - From The Inside
The book collects the stories of 6 of the participants, each reporting on their view and participation in the battle. The unifying theme is the incredible skill and courage of the troops involved and to a near equal extent the fog of war and a breakdown in the command structure. The 6 stories come from a variety of participants from Rangers, CSAR , and others. It illustrates the compact ...
Drive to the East (Settling Accounts, Book 2)
Turtledove Scores Again!!!!!!
I have read every Turtledove book I can get my hands on. He is the master of alternate history. The way he weaves actual historical figures into his tales makes his story all the more fascinating. Imagine the South winning the Civil War and both World Wars being fought in North America. Turtledove uses his fertile imagination to do just that. The Settling Accounts series takes the ...
Unplayable: An Inside Account of Tiger's Most Tumultuous Season
I could not put this book down. If you love golf and are curious to know the thinking of a great champion this writing gives the clearest insight I've ever read about any great player and their highly competive nature! Before you finish it you will certainly have a much better understanding of all those who surround him, especially his caddy Steve...priceless info. You will make no mistake ...
The Seven Keys to Managing Strategic Accounts
Great Real-World Advice
As an MBA candidate who spends far too much time reading textbooks, I found Seven Keys a welcome change in my business reading. It's readable, well-organized, full of real-world examples, and it lets me quickly know how I can ready an organization for effective strategic account management. These authors clearly have busy people in mind. I read the chapters that were of particular interest and ...
Valkyrie: An Insider's Account of the Plot to Kill Hitler
Hans Bernd Gisevius
Da Capo Press
Important Book by One of the Conspirators in the July 20 Attempt to Kill Hitler
This book has many flaws, but it is the sole memoir available to historians written by one of the conspirator in the plot to kill Hitler. As such, it must be given five stars for its historical value even when some of the information is not supported by other evidence and some comments are obviously colored by the author's personal opinions. Hans Bernd Gisevius was practically the only ...
Race: A Theological Account

Oxford University Press, USA
Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission
One to Remember
Before you start reading this book make sure you are free for the next few days. Once you start you will not stop until it's finished. The author somehow is able to trap so many emotions around war into each few pages. And the story is believable, yet incredible. Bringing all of these pieces together is rarely this well done. Overall the story and writing are really way above other books in ...
Stalking the Vietcong: Inside Operation Phoenix: A Personal Account
Most Incisive Account
I have read a lot of books on Vietnam. If you want to know the combination of reasons why the North Vietnamese succeeeded, read this book ! Like someone else has said, what a shame the author was shipped back in '72, although one already knows ( from reading this book), what happened over the next 2-3 years. One cannot also help but feel that had America not tired of the war ( and the loss of ...
Truth, Lies and Advertising : The Art of Account Planning
Approachable book for anyone interested in account planning
I've been working as an account planner for four years, and now am an advertising instructor as well, and any time anyone is looking for a good advertising book, especially one related to account planning, this is the one I recommend. It's a pretty good account of what the day to day job is like and is very conversationally written. As a result, it's much more enjoyable to read than a text book ...
Called to Account: Fourteen Financial Frauds that Shaped the American Accounting Profession
Paul M. Clikeman
No doubt the greatest book I have ever read/purchased. Before I read this book I had all these money making fraud schemes in my mind; after reading this book, the number of new fraud ideas has doubled...I am going to be rich, bitch!
