Joel Demski’s book is an excellent book in accounting that provides an insightful and comprehensive study on managerial accounting using issues through a new approach based on economic theory and quantitative methods. 
This book discusses comparative accounting and economic foundations in managerial accounting and elaborates the issues in the combined area in the mathematical models. The issues on managerial accounting are very interesting to study since business environments are very dynamic, hence the provision and use of accounting information in the managerial process extends dynamically over time as well. Many insightful publications in managerial accounting have emerged and some have made valuable contributions to the field of managerial accounting. In this context, the objective of the book is to provide a comprehensive discussion on how accounting information might be utilised as a basis for managerial decision making in a business organization. The managerial decision making process presented in the book is focused on the choice of factors which might incur cost and how the cost should be efficiently managed.
