Think about this, think about this, not many tools

This is OK as a basic list of things to keep in mind. One follows another and another in pretty quick succession. I can't argue with the points as made. But aside from the rough basics of the balance sheet itself, it doesn't really have much in the way of tools or examples to monitor, measure and fix things. There are certainly more detailed books on aspects of this, for example (with risk management) the vastly more fleshed-out and detailed Essentials of Risk Management by Crouhy, at al. To be charitable, this book probably is aimed at an audience of a very small business where more reckoning will be more personally, individually done, and less formalized anyway. It might be a very good starter for people less versed in this stuff. It is useful to me as a lightweight refresher as I prep to start to teach another semester of business law.
