Using the successful pictorial style, which made 'The Marketing Plan' and 'Selling Services and Products' so original, Paul Burns and Peter Morris have now developed a humorous and easy-to-understand guide to the world of business finance. Follow the adventures of small-time entrepreneur Jack Plank and his Finance Director cousin Vivienne as she helps him turn his business from a potential casualty of the 'Death Valley Curve' into an efficient, profit-making success story.
