**** More Info **** BOOKKEEPING
By LOUIS W. FIELDS, B.S., C.P.A.
CADILLAC PUBLISHING CO., INC.
1956,
BY DOUBLEDAY & CoMPANY, INc.
Bookkeeping is one of the basic operations of our enormously complex
economic system; it is, in fact, that operation which describes and records business transactions, which brings order where there had been chaos.
Without it, no business enterprise could function efficiently or, in all likelihood, even long survive.
Since this is so, there is naturally the best interest among those who are in some way part of the business community in its methods and techniques.
But these are themselves complex, although they need not be.
It is the author's belief that this is ok presents the subject matter of Bookkeeping and Basic Accounting in such a way as to cut through its complexities and to make it available to anyone who has the simple will to learn, the dedication to absorb its contents.
Although there is perhaps no true substitute for an extended,
rigorous (and expensive) course of study,
not many people are in a position to expend the necessary time and effort that such a course of study demands.
It is principally for those persons that the author has prepared this book,
with the conviction that it will thoroughly ground its readers in the understanding and knowledge which will make for expertness.
With that end in view, each part of the book has been conceived and executed.
The author has borne in mind the varied needs and interests of several groups:
those who plan to enter the field of Bookkeeping as a profession;
businessmen who wish to keep their own books;
those-businessmen and others associated with business-who have occasion to review and inter~ bookkeeping records;
and those who for diverse reasons seek better to understand the significance of business transactions.
It is our hope and belief that no one will find his or ~ interests scanted.
Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject on the part of the reader,
this book begins at the beginning and, omitting nothing,
methodically develops its material so that complete command of theory,
methods and techniques may be gained.
Where words alone do not suffice,
graphic are used, and text and picture are further augmented by numerous examples.
Finally, Bookkeeping and Basic Accounting cannot be absorbed thoroughly without testing the theory in practice, without learning by doing.
To this end, he has devised exercises and problems (the solutions are,
of course, provided) ~ed to reinforce what has already been learned so that it will remain with the reader.
