The eighth edition offers new elements designed to sharpen Pratt's economic decision-making foundation with a more timely, real-world focus. Up-to-date, expanded, and detailed IFRS coverage is now included. The SEC 2014 roadmap is explored in all chapters. Comprehensive coverage of real-world financial crisis issues is presented. Accountants will also find more discussions on the increasing role of management's assessment of internal controls over financial reporting.
