Basic accounting text? I'm an attorney and recently a lot of my job involves ferreting out a defendant's financials, balance sheets, and cash flow statements. I've never taken accounting and my knowledge is very limited. I'd like to get some kind of basic accounting text (or other source) to just kind of help me better understand what I'm looking at and also ask informed questions of CFOs and accountants and the like. I work in a very small firm, so we (and our clients) don't really have money for expensive experts and I've got to do a lot of this leg work on my own. Thanks for your help. I'm looking for something that just explains the basics of balance sheets, cash flow statements, and financials etc.
