XBRL Guide Now Available

The AICPA has just published a new book, XBRL Essentials, written by Charles Hoffman, CPA and Carolyn Strand, CPA, Ph.D. The book will help companies understand and use XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language), a freely-available software format designed for the preparation and exchange of financial statements and other reports over the Internet.

XBRL Essentials includes a comprehensive demonstration of the XBRL process and a detailed analysis of XBRL's relationship to XML and the Internet.

The book is available from the AICPA by calling 888-777-7077. The price is $39.95.

Another book that will soon be available (due to be published in August), Introduction XBRL: Decision Making in a Digital Economy, will also cover XBRL basics.
