MEDIA REVIEWS
The Basics of Public Budgeting and Financial Management offers graduate and undergraduate students an opportunity to learn some basic budgeting and financial management skills as well as a snap shot of budgetary theory in one textbook. Each chaptercontains questions that require application of the materials learned. Students are required to visit budget offices and use the Internet to collect budget information to complete the assignments. The main reason for selecting this text is its organization, readability, and the accompanying exercises. This void between theory and practice has existed in our field for some time and this textbook goes a long way in to completing the circle. The book culminates with a chapter that addresses the presentationof the budget. Quite often professors find themselves lacking the time needed to teach students how to use Excel and Power Point to develop tables, graphs, and presentations. Last, I like the fact that the book has an instructor's guide with completed Excel spreadsheets and sample open-ended responses. -- Nailah Brock, Assistant Professor, Savannah State University
