Peter Atrill and Eddie McLaney's Accounting and Finance for Non-specialists is an accessible introduction to accounting and finance for non-major students. Using minimal jargon, the authors introduce topics gradually, examining basic principles and underlying concepts before demonstrating how accounting statements and financial information can be used to improve business decision-making. Reflecting this practical emphasis, the text includes numerous extracts – with commentary – from company reports, survey data and other sources.

This pack is comprised of a copy of Accounting and Finance for Non-specialists 8e and an access card with code which will enable students to take advantage of the extra support available in MyAccountingLab. Visit to learn more.
