Accountant's Guide to the Universe: Heaven and Hell by the Numbers. - Craig Hovey

Summary: This is an entertaining book on accounting written for a general audience. It opens with a wild premise: Heaven and Hell have been outsourced to a giant company in a distant galaxy and they are now in charge of determining who goes where after death. The entire universe is scoured for an objective system that can be adapted to the task, and it is found, in the form of accounting, in the least civilized backwater of the universe, Earth! The book is also a morality tale. It demonstrates how financial scandals (a la Bernie Madoff and many others) can be pulled off with "creative accounting," and how much a person adds or subtracts from the universe by their actions. Written for anybody who has taken an accounting class, practices it for a living, or is simply interested in seeing how a system designed to record finances can also be used to judge the entire universe will be enlightened by this book.

Accounting for Value - Stephen H. Penman
Call Number: HG4529 .P45 2011
ISBN: 9780231151184
Publication Date: 2011
Accounting for Value teaches investors and analysts how to handle accounting in evaluating equity investments. The book shows that valuation and accounting are much the same: Valuation is actually a matter of accounting for value. --
Laying aside many of the tools of modern financeùthe cost-of-capital, the Capital Asset Pricing Model, and discounted cash flow analysisùStephen Penman returns to the common-sense principles that have long guided fundamental investing: Price is what you pay but value is what you get; the risk in investing is the risk of paying too much; anchor on what you know rather than on speculation; and beware of paying too much for speculative growth. Penman puts these ideas in touch with the quantification supplied by accounting, producing practical tools for the intelligent investor. --
Accounting for value provides protection from paying too much for a stock and clues the investor in to the likely return from buying growth. Strikingly, the analysis finesses the need to calculate a "cost-of-capital;' which often frustrates the application of modern valuation techniques. Accounting for value recasts "value" versus "growth" investing and explains such curiosities as why earnings-to-price and book-to-price ratios predict stock returns. By the end of the book, Penman has the intelligent investor thinking like an intelligent accountant, better equipped to handle the bubbles and crashes of our time. For accounting regulators, Penman also prescribes a formula for intelligent accounting reform, engaging with such controversial issues as fair value accounting. --Book Jacket.
