These reviews are completely bogus

Someone used a very low creativity bot to generate these glowing, nonsensical, repetitive reviews. it seems Audible reviews are totally useless. they should link to Amazon for the book content, then have an audio rating. clearly there is minimal review checking for legitimacy. I have not read this book, but the one time I bought a book on audible based on reviews, it had a horrible skipping/playback problem, for which audible suggested I do all manner of fixes which were totally unreasonable.

Amazingly Well Done and Applicable

Desiring more in deep detail but provides a good start to begin your business in Accounting and it focuses too much on QuickBooks and in Missouri. The perfect introduction to Start a Business and Accounting book for beginners.

Good knowledge to begin with.

Hope there was more information in the back and a list of state agencies you would require to contact. This is great when you are starting your home-based business. I use it as well in my home-based business.
