Financial Shenanigans
Howard Schilit
Price: $ 27.95

Inflated profits . . . Suspicious write-offs . . . Shifted expenses . . . These and other dubious financial maneuvers have taken on a contemporary twist as companies pull out the stops in seeking to satisfy Wall Street. Financial Shenanigans pulls back the curtain on the current climate of accounting fraud. It presents tools that anyone who is potentially affected by misleading business valuations­­from investors and lenders to managers and auditors­­can use to research and read financial reports, and to identify early warning signs of a companys problems. A bestseller in its first edition, Financial Shenanigans has been thoroughly updated for todays marketplace. New chapters, data, and research reveal contemporary shenanigans that have been known to fool even veteran researchers.
