The question to ask is “Why is it important to understand the concepts of accounting? This book does not intend to transform the reader into a CPA or accounting Superstar. But rather provides a platform to individuals who find themselves intimidated by accounting types in a corporate meeting, or a student entering a business program or an individual who wants to follow a dream by opening a business but needs to understand the importance of gathering good information to make good business decisions. Know the difference between Custodial accounting and Managerial accounting. Learn about the Father of Accounting. As we know, the rate of new businesses succeeding is low. New business owners must have good business plans in place and anticipate and plan for new business costs. The author envisions this book to be designed as one small step in helping individuals understand how sound business decisions are made. It is is intended to be the first step in self-education on accounting concepts.

This completely revised and expanded Second Edition includes an account of the most significant CISG decisions reported during recent years. Concrete examples are provided throughout. The English language text will help European jurists to better communicate about CISG problems across language barriers.

We effortlessly recognize all sorts of events--from simple events like people walking to complex events like leaves blowing in the wind. We can also remember and describe these events, and in general, react appropriately to them, for example, in avoiding an approaching object. Our phenomenal ease interacting with events belies the complexity of the underlying processes we use to deal with them. Driven by an interest in these complex processes, research on event perception has been growing rapidly. Events are the basis of all experience, so understanding how humans perceive, represent, and act on them will have a significant impact on many areas of psychology. Unfortunately, much of the research on event perception--in visual perception, motor control, linguistics, and computer science--has progressed without much interaction. This volume is the first to bring together computational, neurological, and psychological research on how humans detect, classify, remember, and act on events. The book will provide professional and student researchers with a comprehensive collection of the latest research in these diverse fields.
