The 2018 IASB Conceptual Framework is an important component of this book. Over time, it will be an important aspect of the financial accounting environment. Its relationships to the theory developed here are critically evaluated. While we retain extensive discussion of alternate theories of investor behaviour, this book continues to regard the theory of rational investors as important to helping accountants prepare useful financial statement information.
Theory in Practice: These vignettes provide real-world cases that illustrate the theoretical concepts.  Some are pursued further in end-of-chapter Questions and Problems. 
Examples: Numerical examples with detailed commentary about the method of solution make the theory more concrete, reinforcing students’ learning. 
Figures: Each chapter begins with a schematic figure.  The figure at the start of Chapter 1 shows the design of the book, and each subsequent chapter starts with a figure showing the design of that chapter.
Questions and Problems: Each chapter except Chapter 1 ends with questions and problems that allow students to test, and sometime extend, their understanding of the chapter’s contents.
