‘Something that is always needed’

Great book to introduce you to the key concepts of finance acronyms and abbreviations, as they apply to every person in a company. If you’re working in finance, you likely already know this information, but if you’re in any other department, it is the perfect book. Easy to read, easy to understand, and I have been able to apply the ideas right away.

I wish this was the introductory text in MBA programs – great place to start, as finance is, more than anything, a language. I am in sales and found the ideas a great reminder of how to position the financial value of by products. I encourage anyone who wants to get ahead in their job to listen this, and then think about your company and how to apply the ideas. In this day and age, Financial Acronyms is critical to getting ahead!


I don’t normally write reviews, but I have to say this is the best financial book I’ve ever read. I have spent the past 15 or so years at the coo level with finance reporting to me. And while i’m financially savvy, I have no formal financial education. I’m a believer that finance, like any profession or industry, gets bogged down in its own set of acronyms and language. That in and of itself creates the silos too often found in organizations. Sales has it, marketing has it, hr has it, etc…etc…

I always try to break down barriers, and most of my time is spent as a translator. Truth be told, I’ve always struggled with translating the financial lingo. This book did it for me and has helped me paint a picture and tell the story behind it so everyone understands. Kudos to the authors!
