Your greatest decision as an accountant is to determine the market you want to target and gather the tools that will lead you to successfully achieve your professional goals. I will suggest what books and resources that I trust. I have never taken a course in accounting. But I have had to do accounting for most of my working life, including doing financial reporting for multiple small businesses, which is the most complex industry for accounting. I have even opined on 10+ financial accounting standards over time. While these are my personal book reviews I do encourage you to let me know what you find interesting in the accounting world.
