We have finished the first part of the book, and now we are ready to move on to the meat: the analysis of financial statements. It will be helpful during this next part if you understand some accounting, but, if you do not, you can still learn, but be sure to take your time - skimming through is only cheating yourself.
This is the nightmarish portion of the book, but this part is critical to our studies. If you find that you are really having too much trouble understanding this part, then please discontinue your studies until you have a better grasp on accounting. Do not be discouraged by how dense and dull this part is, because this part will make us rich.
