New accountancy business book

On the boards, you often hear newly qualified accountants struggling with real world problems, boxes of reciepts, half complete records..

I wondered if there's any text books available that help guide you through these situations?

If not, it could be an idea for a new book!

    Good idea, maybe you should write one if there isn't one on the market :) My Unit 5 FRA Kaplan book had a good section on incomplete records, but probably doesn't cover everything.

    Textbook incomplete records bears no resemblance to a realworld box of receipts! At least it didn't when I was studying.

    It's a good idea. "How your technical accountancy knowledge actually works in the real world"

    I work for a company, so I'm shielded from most of the real world stuff.

    I'm sure someone like yourself would have a much better of how the book could be done?

    Yeah. Gimme some of that "spare time" shizzle and I'll be right on it. I think it's stocked on the shelf with "rockinghorse poop" :(

    It's a good idea, joking aside I do actually fancy it... maybe something for when I've found my other accountant and have him/her doing more of the work and I've got ATT under my belt :-)

    Being new to all this sounds like a really good idea, a down to earth book written by someone in the know
