Not an adequate reference for expanding businesses
As the bookkeeper for a start up internet company, QB for Dummies was helpful as a quick tutorial and overview. If you run a small family business, this is the perfect book for you. But if you're a company that expects to grow (as many of us startups are hopeful of), there's just not enough detail. I am now forced to look for a different book that will give me detailed help in creating the reports I need for financial analysis. Good thing I was given this one for free...

Too much sizzle not enough steak
When I first started using this book I thought it was helpful, but when I needed help and information about entering transactions, I realized the shallowness of the book. The author knows a lot about business issues, but I needed bookkeeping help, I needed to understand what to do and why to do it that way.
I recommend you buy Quickbooks The Offical Guide instead if you want to learn Quickbooks inside and out - which is the only way to get the software to do exactly what you need.

Informative and Entertaining
This book made a hard program easy to use. He has a good sense of humor, which makes tech stuff easy to read. You won't have to read the book with a cup of coffee. I tried to use the program without the "Dummies" book and got nowhere. After reading the book, I have everything in balance and working. Thank you Mr. Nelson.
