While I had exposure to accounting courses in college, that was years back and I need to brush up on the basic principles so I can better understand their needs and anticipate what will be coming up. I'm looking for a book that's short and to the point so I'll understand the way accountants think. General ledger, tax receiptability, reconciliations, balancing entries, etc. Everything from the debits and credits I know about to the concepts I don't even know to mention as examples. I don't need to be an accountant, I just need to be able to converse with them.
