QuickBooks 2010 on Demand

The lovely and talented Gail Perry has come out with a really nice QuickBooks book entitled “QuickBooks 2010 on Demand”, and I really like it.  My Amazon review is shown below.

5.0 out of 5 starsA must for QuickBooks users who want to actually get things done., March 13, 2010

This is a great book for the average QuickBooks user who needs a good tutorial on how to get things done in the application. Unlike many other "dopey" books, the authors have included screen shots from QB2010 as well as lots of good practical information for novices and advanced users without being too technical. The book is printed in full color, but it's done in a way where it's not too "busy", and is easy on the eyes. The book includes things users know they need to do but don't usually know how to handle (like bank reconciliations), as well as things that will save them time but they don't know about or don't understand (like time tracking, job costing, etc.)
A must for your QuickBooks bookshelf.

As many of you know, most authors don’t make much money writing, so Gail is selling copies of her book directly (I’m sure she’ll even autograph them if you would like) for 10% off retail with free shipping ($31.50).  If interested, visit her website, www.funwithtaxes.com

Gail has also written an excellent book on Excel Macros which is also available at the site.

Full disclosure: Gail Perry is also the editor of Accountingweb.com.  Although she did not ask me to post this to the blog, I thought the book should be mentioned.
