This parable is a companion Color Accounting (print and e-book) and to to Accounting Comes Alive – Introducing Color Accounting (multimedia textbook for iPads, also available on iTunes). 

In just a few easy hours you’ll read the story of an MBA learning accounting & business from his grandfather.  It’s a perfect start for beginners and people who learn best through story. The critical concepts that underpin all accounting are explained. The friendliness of the tale belies the power of the learning. 

The Parable is based on the revolutionary Color Accounting system that explains accounting with diagrams.  Vivid and colorful images throughout the book make the important concepts you need to know come alive - with breathtaking simplicity. 

The second part of the book covers financial analysis and is suitable for beginners and more advanced students. Discovering the 5 fatal management mistakes made by business owners is worth the purchase of the book alone.

    Such a helpful introduction to the basics of accounting. Gave me a great foundation for understanding all of the other accounting texts out there which are not organized or presented nearly as well as this little book is. Looking forward to the release of the next book!
  • Good Intro!

    If accounting is a new topic to you, then is a great read! I've had intro accounting classes several years ago, and I had a rough idea of how the principals worked. My wife, on the other-hand, had never really been exposed to accounting at all. After purchasing some accounting software for our small business, we realized we needed some grounding. This book was a great intro for my wife, and re-intro for me, to the basics we needed to know. Skip this if you're pretty comfortable with double-entry accounting. However, I would highly recommend this if you're opening a small business and have little, to no accounting background at all. Looking forward to a follow-on book getting into some more complex topics. Thanks Mark!

    Unless you have absolutely no background business or in even basic bookkeeping, this book is a wasted investment of both time & money.
