Creative Accounting and the Cross-Eyed Javelin Thrower Reviews


"This booka s striking title is carried through into its structure and style, all evidently aimed at making it accessible to a wide readership of practitioners and not just stuffy academics. This is certainly a welcome change from the stodgy prose of most writing on financial regulation." ---- Journal of Law Society, September 2000 "I would certainly put this book in the category of essential reading for anyone involved in preparing company accounts." ----Accounting Technician, April 2001
