For someone eager to learn the ins and outs of bookkeeping and taking the first steps to accounting, the 10 Forms and Templates book is the answer. I find this book accessible reading using a screen-reader, of which this is important to me in that the tables are clearly laid out and the author took her time to prepare these tables and not simply scan some page and save it as an image. While the image serves better in that one sees the tabular information as it is on paper, yet it does a poor job of not being accessible and tables and information nowadays can be better presented in clear text as HTML or Word information. 

Turning to the content, for someone who is curious how to not only learn the structure of bookkeeping books, this book's first part is a good reference. Nowadays, I find myself printing out necessary pages to prepare invoices for sales instead of starting afresh. One has to only fill in the missing information and that is that. 

The second part serves as a good tutorial for bookkeeping and accounting basics. So whether you are pursuing a career in bookkeeping or you are like myself who is running a small business, this tutorial is a good place. The tutorial section also illuminates one's understanding of the Forms section. 

This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to understand where his or her pennies are heading to whenever a transaction takes place. 

By: Edna Tidwell 
Great book with really good templates.

By: Tiffany
Remarkable work. And having both an American English and a British English version available shows the attention to detail, the consideration and the thoroughness of Sarah. Thank you so much.

By: Chris 
Excellent book for every beginner. Clear, easy to understand, handy and to the point. I will recommend it for anyone that wants to learn book keeping rom the scratch. Students of Accounting and shop owners should look for it. Thanks

By: Tunde Ajayi 
The printable forms are very good to be used for manual recordings. I found the completed examples very educative and a good guide for a beginner like me. With this book, I do not need to hire an Accountant or a Bookkeeper for my small business at the moment. 

By: Kevin
What I have seen and used so far very good and Sarah is very quick expounding to any questions asked.
