    Finally One book to use as a reference guide for all things related to Local Public Finance in New Jersey!

    The Definitive Guide to Local Public Finance in New Jersey by Peter O'Reilly is an excellent desktop reference for any seasoned or aspiring local public finance professional in the state of New Jersey. The author does a fantastic job providing examples and explanations, ranging from theory to accounting. The appendix is an incredibly useful gathering of laws, dates, votes, and percentages, which acts not only as a quickly needed resource, but also as a worthy study aid for the NJ CMFO state licensing examination. Finally, there is a book that is easy to read and understand, which helps make the complicated subject of modified accrual basis of accounting less complicated. Well done, Mr. O'Reilly!

    I am a CPA, but am new to government cash basis accounting (OCBOA). The reference of journal entries in the appendix itself is worth the price of the book. I am still working my way through the first few chapters of the book. I am already benefiting from what I have read. It has been helpful for me at work.

    At last! An actual textbook that I can use while studying for the state exam in NJ! Instead of carrying around multiple binders where you may lose sheets of valuable information. The book is extremely organize and categorize by subject and by page, which is something that the Rutgers University CMFO binders does not provide. On top of that, there is additional practice problems for you to dive into to prepare for the state exam. As a bonus, it references the Local Finance Laws throughout the book. I will definitely use this in practice and as a supplemental resource when I am studying for the state exam. I am confident with this textbook I will be successful in my future endeavors

    As an educator and textbook editor, I highly recommend this seminal book on local government finance in the state of New Jersey. The textbook is readable with an especially well-organized layout and presentation of its content including detailed appendices. Information can easily be found so that all we need to know about public policy in New Jersey can be reached at our fingertips, all in one definitive guide. Students, professors, administrators, New Jersey citizens, municipal officials, and CFOs now have a guide to obtain the information they need quickly and effectively. Answers to public policy questions cannot always be found through internet searches on local government websites, and such searches can be time-consuming. This textbook is a welcome addition to anyone’s public policy reference material, especially for its superb, clearly written explanations of fiscal theory and practice for municipal and county government, school districts, local authorities, and special... More > districts. The first chapters provide a thorough overview of the New Jersey State government (its departments, divisions, and offices) and the structure of local government. Especially notable are the chapters on budgeting and funding with equally rich chapters following on financial management. This guide is indispensable for anyone seeking career enrichment and empowerment in today’s constantly growing information age. At last we can keep up with the exponential growth in public policy information--we can use this resource to hone our expertise and ultimately be more productive and knowledgeable students, citizens, school employees, and financial managers.< Less
