The book shows that accounting has attained the status of a modest intellectual discipline. 1 This achievement is demonstrated by a skillful weaving of significant accounting terms into a description of the way systematically arranged account data can convey verbal ideas about the situation and the progress achieved by a business enterprise. It is made evident that accounting aims at communication; but “reading” the communication must first be learned.
