I found this book quite helpful in understanding a) how to read balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements b) GAAP. Overall, a good shot in the arm. It's intended to be a high-level introduction, and it excels at that. If you simply want to know how to read a company's financial reports, or to read a journal or double-entry account ledgers, this does the job.

You have to choose between trusting to the natural stability of gold and the natural stability of the honesty and intelligence of the members of the Government. And, with due respect for these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the Capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold.
