Revsine's Financial Reporting & Analysis 8th edition is fully updated for new FASB/GAAP standards in Leases and Revenue Recognition, as well as for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Updates are also included in Connect, the premier digital teaching and learning tool that allows instructors to assign and assess course material.

Financial Reporting & Analysis (FR&A) by Revsine/Collins/Johnson/Mittelstaedt/Soffer emphasizes both the process of financial reporting and the analysis of financial statements. This book employs a true "user" perspective by discussing the contracting and decision implications of accounting, helping readers understand why accounting choices are so important and to whom they matter. Revsine, Collins, Johnson, Mittelstaedt, and Soffer train their readers to be good financial detectives by enabling them to read, use, and interpret the statements. Most importantly, FR&A helps students develop critical-thinking skills and understand how and why managers can utilize the flexibility in GAAP to adapt the numbers for their own purposes.

About the Author

Lawrence Revsine

At the time of his passing in 2007, Lawrence Revsine was the John and Norma Darling Distinguished Professor of Financial Accounting, Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University. A graduate of Northwestern University, he joined its accounting faculty in 1971.
Larry was a leading authority on various financial reporting issues and published more than 50 articles in top academic journals. He was a consultant to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Financial Accounting Standards Board and served on the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council. He was also a consultant to industry on external reporting issues and regulatory cases and taught extensively in management development and continuing education programs in the United States and abroad.
Larry was a master at making accounting come alive in the classroom. He had an uncommon knack for creating a sense of mystery and excitement about seemingly mundane accounting topic. Each class had a clear message that Larry delivered with great energy and enthusiasm. And each class was sprinkled with anecdotes conveyed with an element of wit that only Larry could pull off. It was his deep understanding of the subject matter and his dynamic delivery that endeared him to so many Kellogg students over the years. Among the many awards he received for teaching excellence are: the American Accounting Association’s Outstanding Educator Award; the Illinois CPA Society’s Outstanding Educator Award; the Sidney J. Levy Teaching Award, presented by the Kellogg Dean’s Office; and the 1995 Reunion Class Alumni Choice Faculty Award, given to the Kellogg faculty member who has had the greatest impact on the professional and personal lives of Kellogg alums.
Larry was passionate about changing the way financial accounting is taught, and he was the driving force behind this book. As you read this book, listen carefully and you will hear his voice echo from every page.
