Description: Praise for MORE THAN A NUMBERS GAME "More Than a Numbers Game is a revelatory history of how accounting conventions have shaped business reality, for good and ill." -Justin Fox, Editor at Large, Fortune "Mr. King2s book should be of interest to both those who have lived through the accounting debates and debacles of the past half century and those just beginning their business careers. By focusing on a dozen or so major developments, particularly those with negative consequences, the book helps explain why good financial information is so critical to capital markets. Equal doses of insight and humor make this an easy-to-read, but hard-to-forget summary of an important business topic." -Dennis R. Beresford, Ernst & Young Executive Professor of Accounting, The University of Georgia, and former chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (1987-97) "More Than a Numbers Game is a must-read for accounting students looking for a supplement to traditional textbooks. It offers a business perspective to accounting, providing readers with a holistic overview of taxes, cost accounting, regulation, as well as more traditional financial reporting topics." -Philip A. Laskawy, retired chairman and CEO, Ernst & Young "Tom King provides even the non-accountant a fascinating look at how accounting rules and practices have evolved into the way corporations are valued today. He is particularly effective in analyzing the 2earnings game2 and the growing role of intangible assets in the valuation process." -Louis M. Thompson Jr., President and CEO, National Investor Relations Institute "Tom King takes a very important topic in today2s world, accounting, and puts it into a perspective that sheds an entirely new light on the importance of accounting and the intrinsic shortcomings of the profession. Whether you use GAAP accounting, do quarterly earnings, or are a private company, there is more than meets the eye to the accounting profession. King2s book is an invaluable piece of work to demystify what tends to be a mystery." -Jeff Joerres, Chairman and CEO, Manpower Inc.
