The Accounting Game : Basic Accounting Fresh from the Lemonade Stand
Category : Commentary/TheAccountingGame.txt
I was updating our feedback page (you know, the one containing The Mail We Love to Get) so that it'll also include the messages we've been getting about Luca, when I came across this reference to "The Accounting Game : Basic Accounting Fresh from the Lemonade Stand".

One of the ways I had meant Luca to be used is as an accounting system you could use interactively when you're reading the Robert Anthony book, entering the book examples into the system, and seeing the different views that result from the data - Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss, etc.

Looks like a book I absolutely must read, next, judging from the Amazon reviews.
