What is a good basic to intermediate financial or cost accounting book that is focused on software/internet companies?

I'm looking for a basic to intermediate accounting book, preferably focused on ad-revenue based internet companies, if a good one exists with that focus. Otherwise a recommendation for a good basic to intermediate accounting book with a more typical manufacturing focus is fine too.
I've worked in an FP&A role in the past, and have been doing various finance roles for the past few years, so I have some background. I am joining a decently sized ad revenue based social networking startup to help set up their FP&A organization, and am looking for a good overview so I can make sure all my bases are covered since I've been working at larger companies in more specialized roles until this point.
I'm not looking for something incredibly detailed and technical on the latest accounting standards, but more of a conceptual overview, preferably with some information about industry best practices.
