Work It Out With A Pencil: Outrageous Tales from Twenty Years as an Accountant (Memoirs/Non-Fiction/Comedy)
The aim of Work It Out With A Pencil is to illustrate that not all accountants are boring, monotone dullards that achieve their thrills in life at the bottom of a balance sheet or by completing income tax returns. It is the hope of the author that Work It Out With A Pencil provides an insight into the world of finance from the perspective of someone who lived it for over two decades. The stories within the book are illustrated to prove that some, but admittedly not all, accountants can find themselves in humourous situations that do not involve the reader needing a crash course in bookkeeping or industrial-strength medication to endure such an ordeal.
